TREASURES FROM OUR TRADITION
What makes the Eucharistic Prayers for Masses with Children different from the others? First, there is the intended assembly, which is described as comprised of mostly children of school age.
There are three Eucharistic Prayers for Masses with Children available to us now in the missal. The first one has a very simple form, easily grasped by even a young child. The second has a great deal of participation by the assembly—repeated sung acclamations. The third has a number of variations that can be tricky for a priest to handle if he hasn’t prepared carefully. All of this work does point to a true treasure of our tradition: children are part of the Sunday assembly, precisely because they
are baptized members of Christ’s body. By contrast, the churches of the Reformation tend to look upon children as members in training, and see worship as an adult activity. Children belong to
Christ and to the assembly. So, the desire to care for the children in the assembly, to draw them into the prayer, and to adapt our rituals and texts to their needs is deeply Catholic, a true pastoral
effort to help draw everyone into the praise of God.
