Some will wake to everlasting life, some to shame and disgrace.
Psalm 15(16):5, 8–11
R. Keep me safe, O God; you are my hope.
Hebrews 10:11–14, 18
When all sins have been forgiven, there can be no more sin-offerings.
Be watchful and pray constantly, that you may be worthy to stand before the Son of Man.
The stars will fall from heaven and the powers in the heavens will be shaken.

There should be harmony and diligence among all those involved in the effective preparation of each liturgical celebration in accordance with the Missal and other liturgical books, both as regards the rites and as regards the pastoral and musical aspects. This should take place under the direction of the rector of the church and after consultation with the faithful in things that directly pertain to them.General Instruction of the Roman Missal, §111
In preparing our Sunday Mass, there is need to consult. Liturgy is not prepared alone by one person, no matter how competent they may be. There will be constant need to liaise with the presider, the readers, the musicians, the assembly and those who prepare the environment. Sometimes this consultation can be given to a liturgy group, but they must constantly reach out to the ministers and the assembly to know their needs and their plans. In this way, the liturgy is a celebration of the Church.
