Here is what I am doing.



Sort of looks like a "help wanted" that will probably never be filled, doesn't it? This will take me all night and its a good thing I TIVOed "24". I bet Jack Bauer never had to make a FELT BANNER. Back to work...

Hmmmmm. A first communion banner.
Let's see ---
why don't you make a tiny brown felt communion rail, and tiny felt veiled girl kneeling, and a tiny felt copy of "Redemptionis Sacramentum"?
Wouldn't that rock?
;)

Okay, you made me laugh. Do you know how many tiny felt letters are in Redemptionis Sacramentum? How about a tiny GIRM booklet? Haha.

Heh.
The GIRM will work fine.
Seriously, though, if you are the least bit artistic (I'm not) you could make it totally trad.
Write something in Latin - how 'bout "Panis Angelicus"?
Then how about "Jn 6:53"?
Then a little felt chalice with a host above it?
(The altar rail would actually be really easy, if you could put the altar above it, and the tiny chalice/host on the altar?)
Best. Felt. Banner. Ever.
;)

Ok, I'm finally finished. I chickened out and put the usual stuff but put "Deus Tecum" around a host in the center. Im so tired of the tiny letters. It's DONE. Thanks for the help!

Yes, I think some parishes have been doing this since V2. I may start a "Felt-Out" campaign to see how many lay people and religious we can get to ban felt in the church. They stick them to the brick walls around the church(inside). I think there has to be another orthodox means of making the day special than felt.

I think that sounds just about as lovely as one could expect from the trailer park fabric that is felt.
Hey, ya do what you gotta do, right?
;)
When will priests realize how tacky felt banners are?
