How-To Catholic Mass

Ablauf Katholischer Gottesdienst auf Englisch

Um die heilige Messe im englischsprachigen Ausland besser mitfeiern zu können oder mit den Gebeten auf Englisch vertraut zu werden, habe ich ein kleines Tutorial zusammengestellt. Es listet den Gottesdienstablauf sowie alle Gebete der Gemeinde während des Gottesdienstes auf.

Der Guide richtet sich an Gläubige im Urlaub und an katholische Auswanderer, die im neuen Land die Messe besuchen möchten.
Die Anleitung gibt es auch für Gottesdienste auf Französisch und Deutsch.

Natürlich ist nicht jede Eucharistiefeier genau gleich. Daher sind kleine Abweichungen zum Tutorial möglich, z.B. können bei der Feier einzelne Gebete durch Lieder ersetzt werden; das Grundgerüst ist aber, Gott sei Dank, bei allen Gottesdiensten weltweit dasselbe. Einer der Vorteile der katholischen Kirche. 😉

Die Lesungen des Tages auf Englisch findet ihr z.B. hier (catholic.org).

Der Guide ist vor allem zum Mitnehmen in die Messe gedacht (Gottesdienst mit Untertiteln sozusagen), deswegen gibt es ihn hier als PDF zur besseren Ansicht auf dem Smartphone oder zum Downloaden und Ausdrucken.
