The revised translation, from "peace to God's people on earth" to "on earth, peace to people of good will," reminds us of the gratuitous nature of God's love. Although we can add nothing to God's glory, we raise our voices in praise of the Triune God.

The Gloria is sung or recited on all Sundays outside of the Seasons of Advent and Lent, on solemnities and feasts, and on special and more solemn celebrations.

The Gloria may also be used on other days, even when not prescribed by the rules, in order to enhance the celebration on special occasions (GIRM, no. 53 & STLL, no. 148). These events include Masses which incorporate the celebration of Religious Professions; or the Sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation, Marriage, or Ordination (Diaconal, Presbyteral, Episcopal).

This setting of the Gloria may be sung in its entirety by the congregation, as is normally done in the Philippines, or in antiphonal manner; that is, between the choir and the congregation. Especially as the new setting is being introduced, we recommend that the congregation be invited to sing the simple refrain, while the choir sings the more complex verses. As the congregation becomes more familiar with the revised text and melody of the verses, they may sing along with the choir. Nonetheless, the "Glory to God" may still be sung in antiphonal style.
