Epiphany STUDENTS (singing in Latin)
In nomine patri
et fili spiritu sancte
Amen

PRIEST
I want to welcome all of you back.
I hope that Christmas was a time of great joy for you and your families.
Today is the Feast of the Epiphany,
The celebration of the arrival of the three wise men
To pay homage to the baby Jesus.
I want you to imagine what that journey must have been like:
A journey resting entirely on faith,
That they would know where they were going once they arrived.
Imagine what a joy it must have been for them
To have finally reached their destination.
Seniors, you're coming to an end of four years at St. Cecelia's--
You've lived together, studied together
And most importantly, prayed together:
Strength for the journey.
We begin in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
Let us take a moment now to call to mind those times
When we've fallen from God's grace.
I confess...

PRIEST & STUDENTS
..to almighty God,
And to you my brothers and sisters,
that I've sinned through my own fault
In my thoughts and in my words
in what I've done and what I have failed to do.
And I ask the blessing of a virgin,
all the angels and saints and you, my brothers and sisters

PETER
to pray for me,
to the Lord our God.

STUDENTS
Yes, pray for him, to the Lord your God!

MALE STUDENT #1
One of these boys just ain't like the others!

FEMALE STUDENT #1
Loves his female singers.

FEMALE STUDENT #2
Loves to cook.

MALE STUDENT #1
Looks around in gym--

FEMALE STUDENT #1
It pleases him.

STUDENTS
Thoughts enslave him; somebody save him!

MALE STUDENT #1
'cause he knows that he is taking chances

MALE STUDENT #2
and he knows that his romance is doomed.

FEMALE STUDENT #1
He sacrificed his soul to feed his vice--

STUDENTS
heaven severed, hell is forever!
Dig down deep and save your soul!
Grave mistakes will take their toll!
Every sin is entered in--
Heaven comes with discipline

PETER
but it doesn't all make sense
what I feel is real

STUDENTS
No more dodging; God is watching.
His eye is on the lowly sparrow,
The road is long, the path is narrow!

FEMALE STUDENT #2
And your mother, God how she will suffer

MALE STUDENT #1
Will your father break to bear the shame?

FEMALE STUDENT AND MALE STUDENT
Yes, you were a force in their divorce.

STUDENTS
Trust the shepard; God make an effort!

MALE STUDENT #1
Will you drag that poor boy down there with you?

FEMALE STUDENT #2
He's unsure and you can change his mind.

MALE STUDENT #1
If you love him so, you'll let him go.

STUDENTS
Life is choices; live by our voices!
Dig down deep and save your soul!
Grave mistakes will take their toll!
Every sin is entered in--
Heaven comes with discipline

PETER
but it doesn't all make sense
if the love is strong.

STUDENTS
No more dodging; God is watching.
His eye is on the lowly sparrow,
The road is long, the path is narrow!

CLAIRE
Our first reading today
is the story of how
despite the best efforts
of a single mother,
a child can still go
horribly, horribly wrong.

PETER
Mom!

CLAIRE
For his eighth birthday,
Peter asked for an EZ-Bake Oven;
his father asked for a divorce.
To me the link between those two events
was as strong as Peter's attraction
to my makeup table.
We sent him to Catholic boarding school
thinking it might help
but when he met his roommate Jason,
the two of them locked eyes and I said to myself,
"Claire, you wanted grandchildren,
instead you're gonna get ambiguous
Christmas cards from South Beach."

FEMALE STUDENT
Please join us in singing
our offertory hymm, #279, "A Bender Among Us".
There's a bender among us
he must be exposed.
He'll kidnap our children
then take off their clothes.
A bender among us
there's pink in our flock--
a boy without conscience
who's led by his--

CLAIRE
Cockamaimy! Pure cockamaimy
that this isn't a choice.
Don't do this to me Peter.

PRIEST
The peace of the Lord be with you always

STUDENTS
and also with you.

PRIEST
Let us offer each other
a sign of Christ's peace.
This is the lamb of God
who takes away the sin of the world;
happy are those who are called to this table.

PETER
Lord, I am not worthy to receive you,
but only say the word and I shall be.

STUDENTS
Lord, he is not worthy to receive you.

PETER
Father?

PRIEST
Not at a funeral, Peter.

PETER
I'd like to start with just a...
if we could take a moment...
if maybe we were silent...
or we had spoken.
Mom, what is it?
Ivy? Nadia? Matt?
Is it I, Lord?
Is it I?

STUDENTS
Timothy, Romans, Corinthians, Leviticus
Timothy, Romans, Corinthians, Leviticus
Timothy, Romans, Corinthians, Leviticus

FEMALE STUDENTS
Forgive the sinner; hate the sin!
Created in his image--
abomination, abomination,

STUDENTS
abomination, abomination!

STUDENTS
Bear
the cross
the shame
the cross
bear the cross, bear the cross, bear the cross!

PRIEST
Let us go forth in peace, to love, and serve the Lord.

STUDENTS
Thanks be to God.
