What is the tradition of the Mass?
“The praises of God have always been sung with great spontaneity. This began at the beginning on the day of Pentecost.”
The church began with a tremendous outpouring of enthusiasm, expressive praise, and spontaneous praises of God. In the first 8 centuries we saw this in our liturgies. The truth is that throughout the centuries, Christians have praised God in a wonderful expressive fashion, spontaneous at times, improvising at times. This is part of our tradition.
