    The USCCB readings calendar now includes the text to the Alleluia.

    This is a massive improvement to their website and congratulations are in order.

    Now if only the Vatican website could get updated more than once a millennium, we'd be in business.

    Salieri: Vatican website ... updated

    To me the Vatican website undergoes a facelift far too often.
    I do not like them re-arranging stuff.

    I want more docs added every month.
    I want ALL docs from Vatican Two forward with clickable footnotes
    which would necessitate back-filling the documents
    that are pre Vatican Two.

    And then subject the whole website to a
    Term Paper Plagiarism Checker
    to enhance the footnotes.

    Edit: Where? It looks the same (sans Alleluia text) to me...

    We should all sing the seasonal verse from the Simplex for the remainder of this year in protest. :)

    ibreviary, of course, has the proper Alleluia verse for every day... but the USCCB website is a lot easier, IMHO.

  • Matthew: I don’t see Alleluia texts … ?
  • Ohh ok.

    Read the entire thread.
  • They have the Spanish Lectionary texts up now, too!

    For those of us who need weekday Alleluia texts and hate having to manually type out Spanish texts from the Lectionary, this is indeed a massive improvement!

    This is incredible news.
  • This would have saved me a few weeks ago, when a DM I was helping was on vacation, the sub organist canceled 45 minutes before, and the sub-sub organist showed up 3 minutes before Mass. The missalette I was looking at (at least) did not run to that Sunday. I was about to go with "man does not live by bread alone," but the sub-sub-organist remembered that the DM had included it in her planning email, which I should have.

    So having the Alleluias online is AWESOME.

    I am new at cantoring, and have almost never been to a Saturday vigil. A deacon who hated the reintroduction of chant, etc, and does everything to undermine the very young DMs they have had, was no help and tried his best to make me nervous. I was suddenly worship planning on the fly in front of everyone. Best training imaginable, but I have rather dark thoughts about the deacon. Not even my parish, and he didn't say thank you. The priest was nice.

    Ibreviary has always had it. Just FYI.
  • Any good missal (MTF) or a desk copy of a sacramentary as well, but having it online helps!
  • They have the Spanish Lectionary texts up now, too!

    Wunderbar! Very useful for those of us who studied German but play for Spanish Mass. Thanks for pointing that out. I might have missed it.
