Laetari Jerusalem

Laetare Jerusalem: et conventum facite omnes qui diligitis eam: gaudete cum laetitia, qui in tristitia fuistis: ur exsultetis, et satiemini ab uberibus consolationis vestris. Psalm. Laetatus sum in his, quae dicta sunt mihi: in domum Domini ibimus. Gloria Patri...

Rejoice, O Jerusalem: and come together all you that love her: rejoice with joy, you that have been in sorrow: that you may exult, and be filled from the breasts of your consolation. Ps. 121. 1. I rejoiced at the things that were said to me: we shall go into the house of the Lord. Glory be to the Father...

It's strange to me that today is still known as Laetare Sunday in the Novus Ordo since they don't chant the traditional Introit anymore. How many parishes open today's Mass with something like "Gather Us In" or "Rain Down" or "Swing Low, Sweet Chariot?"
