At the First Friday Luncheon which I covered for the Bishop, I talked about the Eucharistic Prayer. My hope in presenting this talk was to elevate the listeners’ awareness of what is happening during the Eucharistic Prayer and to emphasize that the whole prayer is prayed by the priest and people together, with the priest vocalizing the prayer and the people listening attentively and singing the acclamations. I also suggested that knowing the various actions of the Eucharistic Prayer can enable people to enter more fully into the prayer through an informed listening and possibly some silent and short litany-type prayers offered while the priest is praying aloud certain portions of the Eucharistic Prayer. Below are my Power Point slides.
