This Week at St Timothy's
Almighty and everlasting God, you hate nothing you have made and forgive the sins of all who are penitent: Create and make in us new and contrite hearts, that we, worthily lamenting our sins and acknowledging our wretchedness, may obtain of you, the God of all mercy, perfect remission and forgiveness; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Words defined:

Intention: In the Holy Eucharist we receive remission of our sins and "all other benefits of his passion." In the celebration of the Eucharist, we apply those benefits to a particular intention. You can see examples of masses for particular intentions on pages 199-210 in the Prayer Book. 17th century Anglican divine Jeremy Taylor wrote, " "It follows then that the celebration of this sacrifice be, in its proportion, an instrument of applying the proper sacrifice to all the purposes for which it was first designed. It is ministerially, and by application, an instrument propitiatory; it is eucharistical; it is an hommage and an act of adoration, and it is impetratory, and obtains for us and for the whole church, all the benefits of the sacrifice, which is now celebrated and applied; that is, as this rite is the remembrance and ministerial celebration of Christ's sacrifice, so it is destined to do honour to God... to beg pardon, blessings, and supply of all our needs" (Discourse XlX, 4).

Adoration
From the Choir Loft | Christin Barnhardt
St Timothy's choristers rehearse twice weekly and have become an integral part of St Timothy's music ministry. They are singing beautiful music and singing it well, and they often amaze me with their insights about the music we sing. One of the choristers made my day this Monday when we were rehearsing William Byrd's Miserere mei, Deus (Have mercy on me, O God) that the choristers will sing with the Schola Choir on Ash Wednesday. We sang the end of the piece and after the cut-off there was a stillness in the air that is rare in a room of fifteen children and adolescents. Then one of the choristers uttered in a hushed tone, "that is beautiful!" And he was right! 

Come worship in the beauty of holiness for Ash Wednesday and the First Sunday of Lent. As the choir sings the psalms and anthems, let them pray on your behalf. During the hymns and service music, sing with the choir and offer your own prayers of penitence and thanksgiving. You also have the opportunity to let prayers wash over you this Sunday evening 8-8:30pm: Lenten Compline, sung by our choral scholars in the church.

Music for Wednesday's noon Ash Wednesday mass will be led by our Choral Scholars. The Children's Choirs, Choristers, Parish Choir, and Schola Choir will sing the 6:30pm mass:
Psalm 103
Miserere mei (Psalm 51), William Byrd
Wash me throughly , S.S. Wesley
Create in Me a Clean Heart, O God, Gwendolyn Emery-Owings

Ash Wednesday Hymns:
Lord Jesus, think on me, No. 641
Jesus all my gladness, No. 701

On Sunday, we will sing at all three masses: 7:30am, 9am, and 11am
7:30am hymns:
Lord, who throughout these forty days , No. 142
Eternal Father, strong to save , No. 608

9am & 11am hymns:
Lord, who throughout these forty days , No. 142
O Love of God, how strong and true , No. 455
