Treasures of Our Faith: 'Kyrie, Eleison'

The Kyrie, Eleison, which is Greek for "Lord, have mercy," is begun after the Act of Penitence, unless it has already been included in the Act.

Since it is a chant by which all of the faithful both acclaim the Lord and also implore the Lord's mercy, it is usually done by all, the people and the choir or cantor all taking part in it.
