At last, a complete ceremonial manual for the celebration of the Eucharist and the Liturgy of the Hours.
Faithful to the renewal of worship authorized by the Second Vatican Council, Ceremonies of the Modern Roman Rite combines precise guidance in these rites with a pastoral and spiritual approach.
A high ideal of noble Catholic worship is consistently maintained, respecting the "continuity of our tradition."
The book sets out the liturgical duties of bishops, priests and deacons, acolytes and servers, lectors and eucharistic ministers etc.
Hence, it is invaluable for clergy, seminarians and all who teach or study the liturgy.
It includes a wide range of guidance on such useful themes as: vessels and vestments, how to carry out ceremonial actions, the deacon, ministering the Eucharist to the sick, children's liturgy, Eucharistic adoration, Eucharistic processions, celebrating vespers in a parish, eucharistic ministries and the laity, the location of the tabernacle, etc.
Ceremonies of the Modern Roman Rite is primarily a book to be used. It is a practical manual for liturgists, clergy, MC's, sacristans, liturgical committees and all who plan worship in parishes.
