Saints of the Roman Canon - The First Eucharistic Prayer
On the Feast Day of Saints Cyprian and Cornelius (September 16), Fr Meyer offered a homily during the St. Lawrence All-School Mass on the First Eucharistic Prayer as he welcomed forth students to represent the Saints named in the ancient prayer of the Church: Peter and Paul, Andrew, James, John, Thomas, James, Philip, Bartholomew, Matthew, Simon and Jude; Linus, Cletus, Clement, Sixtus, Cornelius, Cyprian, Lawrence, Chrysogonus, John and Paul, Cosmas and Damian; John the Baptist, Stephen, Matthias, Barnabas, Ignatius, Alexander, Marcellinus, Peter, Felicity, Perpetua, Agatha, Lucy, Agnes, Cecilia, Anastasia. Each was brought forth during the homily and introduced. Then, as the congregation began to sing the Holy, Holy, they came forward to pray and lifted candles at the consecration. What a wonderful lesson on the presence of the Communion of Saints at every Mass.
