Washington: USCCB Publishing, ISBN 13: THE INTRODUCTORY RITES GIRM, no. 46. The rites preceding the Liturgy of the Word, namely the Entrance, Greeting, the Penitential Act, Kyrie, the Gloria in excelsis (Glory to God in the highest), and Collect, have the character of a beginning, an introduction, and a preparation. Their purpose is to ensure that the faithful who come together as one, establish communion and dispose themselves to listen properly to the Word of God and to celebrate the Eucharist worthily. In certain celebrations that are combined with Mass according to the norms of the liturgical books, the Introductory Rites are omitted or performed in a particular way. [ Prelude ] Entrance: song, procession, and veneration of the altar Greeting: sign of the cross and greeting Introduction to the Mass of the Day: Penitential Act: three forms or Blessing and Sprinkling of Water: Lord, Have Mercy: Glory to God: Collect or Collect Prayer: 11

12 THE LITURGY OF THE WORD GIRM, no. 55. The main part of the Liturgy of the Word is made up of the readings from Sacred Scripture together with the chants occurring between them. As for the Homily, the Profession of Faith, and the Universal Prayer, they develop and conclude it. For in the readings, as explained by the Homily, God speaks to his people, opening up to them the mystery of redemption and salvation, and offering spiritual nourishment; and Christ himself is present through his word in the midst of the faithful. By silence and by singing, the people make this divine word their own, and affirm their adherence to it by means of the Profession of Faith; finally, having been nourished by the divine word, the people pour out their petitions by means of the Universal Prayer for the needs of the whole Church and for the salvation of the whole world. [ Dismissal of Children: ] Silence: First Reading: Silence: Responsorial Psalm: Silence: Second Reading: Silence: [ Sequence: ] Acclamation before the Gospel: Gospel: Homily: Silence: [ Other Rites: Sacraments or Book of Blessings ] Dismissal of Catechumens: Profession of Faith: Universal Prayer or Prayer of the Faithful: THE LITURGY OF THE EUCHARIST GIRM, no. 72. At the Last Supper Christ instituted the Paschal Sacrifice and banquet, by which the Sacrifice of the Cross is continuously made present in the Church whenever the Priest, representing Christ the Lord, carries out what the Lord himself did and handed over to his disciples to be done in his memory. For Christ took the bread and the chalice, gave thanks, broke the bread and gave it to his disciples, saying: Take, eat, and drink: this is my Body; this is the chalice of my Blood. Do this in memory of me. Hence, the Church has arranged the entire celebration of the Liturgy of the Eucharist in parts corresponding to precisely these words and actions of Christ. IOM, no. 99. At the Last Supper, Christ instituted the sacrifice and paschal meal that make the sacrifice of the cross present in the Church. From the days of the Apostles the Church has celebrated that sacrifice by carrying out what the Lord did and handed over to his disciples to do in his memory. Like him, his priests have taken bread and wine, given thanks to God over them, broken the bread, and shared the bread and cup of blessing as the Body and Blood of Christ (see 1 Cor 10:16). The Eucharistic sacrifice, in all its rich variety of forms and traditions, has always retained this basic shape: the 12

13 taking of the elements of bread and wine in the Preparation of the Gifts, the act of thanksgiving in the Eucharistic Prayer, the breaking of the bread, the giving and sharing of the Body and Blood of Christ in Holy Communion. STL, no The Liturgy of the Eucharist is made up of three main parts: the Preparation of the Gifts, the Eucharistic Prayer, and the Communion Rite. The Preparation of the Gifts: Offertory Song: Preparation of the Altar: Collection: Procession with the Gifts: Preparation: Prayer over the Offerings: The Eucharistic Prayer: GIRM, no. 78. Now the center and high point of the entire celebration begins, namely, the Eucharistic Prayer itself, that is, the prayer of thanksgiving and sanctification. The Priest calls upon the people to lift up their hearts towards the Lord in prayer and thanksgiving; he associates the people with himself in the Prayer that he addresses in the name of the entire community to God the Father through Jesus Christ in the Holy Spirit. Furthermore, the meaning of the Prayer is that the entire congregation of the faithful joins with Christ in confessing the great deeds of God and in the offering of Sacrifice. The Eucharistic Prayer requires that everyone listen to it with reverence and in silence. IOM, no The Eucharistic Prayer, the center and summit of the entire celebration, summarizes what it means for the Church to celebrate the Eucharist. It is a memorial proclamation of praise and thanksgiving for God s work of creation and salvation, a proclamation in which the Body and Blood of Christ are made present by the power of the Holy Spirit and in which the people are joined to Christ in offering his sacrifice to the Father. The Eucharistic Prayer is addressed to the Father through Jesus Christ, by the priest celebrant in the name of all who are present. The faithful profess their faith and give their assent through dialogue, acclamations, and the Amen. Since the Eucharistic Prayer is the summit of the Mass, its solemn nature and importance are enhanced Thanksgiving / Preface: Holy Acclamation: Epiclesis: [ inserts: ] Institution narrative and consecration: Memorial Acclamation / Anamnesis: Offering: Intercessions: Final Doxology and Amen: 13

14 The Communion Rite: GIRM, no. 80. Since the celebration of the Eucharist is the Paschal Banquet, it is desirable that in accordance with the Lord's command his Body and Blood should be received as spiritual food by those of the faithful who are properly disposed. This is the sense of the fraction and the other preparatory rites by which the faithful are led more immediately to Communion. IOM, no The reception together of the Lord s Body and Blood in a paschal meal is the culmination of the Eucharist. Those present are made ready to share in this banquet by a rite that leads from the Eucharistic Prayer directly to the Communion. This rite expresses the mutual love and reconciliation that are both the condition and the fruit of worthy communion and the unity of the many in the one symbolized at both the natural and the sacramental level. STL, no The high point of the Communion Rite is the reception of Holy Communion. This is preceded by rites that prepare the faithful to receive the Lord s Body and Blood as spiritual food. Lord s Prayer: Rite of Peace: Fraction and Lamb of God: Silent Prayer: Showing and Invitation: Communion Song: Communion: Silence: Song of Praise: Prayer after Communion: THE CONCLUDING RITES IOM, no After the communion rite, the Mass closes with a brief concluding rite. Its purpose is to send the people forth to put into effect in their daily lives the Paschal Mystery and unity in Christ that they have celebrated. They are given a sense of abiding mission that calls them to witness to Christ in the world and to bring the Gospel to the poor.

Belief: the Building of a New Church / Major Renovation of Existing Church a. Is a 5-10 year plan of practical theology of Church b. Is a 12 month plan of preparing the Liturgy of Dedication c. Cf. DCA, Chapter II, nos Method: A Mystagogy on Dedication Rite by rite in four movements a. Ritual element and the Parish experience b. Underlying Tradition and Theology c. Connection to Liturgy and Liturgical Year; application to the Easter Vigil d. Implication for the Christian life; application to What does the parish learn? Working Definition: Mystagogy and Mystagogical Reflection: is a study of mystery; is, for Catholics, the central Paschal Mystery of the dead and risen Jesus Christ the Lord; is an ancient and beloved practice of the Church; is a form of liturgical catechesis; begins in experience then reflects on that experience (first theology); leads to discerning and naming the meaning of that experience (second theology); and leads to an enriched life of discipleship and mission. 15

Grant this through Christ our Lord. Amen. Prayer of Dedication Father in heaven, source of holiness and true purpose, it is right that we praise and glorify your name. For today we come before you, to dedicate to your lasting service this house of prayer, this temple of worship, this home in which we are nourished by your word and your sacraments. Here is reflected the mystery of the Church. The Church is fruitful, made holy by the blood of Christ: a bride made radiant with his glory, a virgin splendid in the wholeness of her faith, a mother blessed through the power of the Spirit. The Church is holy, your chosen vineyard: its branches envelop the world, its tendrils, carried on the tree of the cross, reach up to the kingdom of heaven. The Church is favored, the dwelling place of God on earth: a temple built of living stones, founded on the apostles with Jesus Christ its corner stone. The Church is exalted, a city set on a mountain: a beacon to the whole world, bright with the glory of the Lamb, and echoing the prayers of her saints. PRAYER OF DEDICATION 21

22 Lord, send your Spirit from heaven to make this church an ever-holy place, and this altar a ready table for the sacrifice of Christ. Here may the waters of baptism overwhelm the shame of sin; here may your people die to sin and live again through grace as your children. Here may your children, gathered around your altar, celebrate the memorial of the Paschal Lamb, and be fed at the table of Christ s word and Christ s body. Here may prayer, the Church s banquet, resound through heaven and earth as a plea for the world s salvation. Here may the poor find justice, the victims of oppression, true freedom. From here may the whole world clothed in the dignity of the children of God, enter with gladness your city of peace. We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen. 2. Underlying Tradition and Theology: THE CHURCH IS 3.
