Product Description

This Ceremonial is intended to present the entire reformed liturgy in a suitable manner and to ensure that in celebrating the liturgy the bishop is clearly seen as "the high priest of his flock, the faithful's life in Christ in some way deriving from and depending on him". The purpose of the Ceremonial will be made more evident through attention to the pastoral and juridical norms pertaining to a bishop that have been issued by the responsible dicasteries of the Holy See. The new Ceremonial of Bishops cannot be regarded as a liturgical book in the proper sense, since it is not a book for use in liturgical celebrations. But this Ceremonial will be helpful to bishops, to the several categories of ministers, and to masters of ceremonies, since they will find in it the parts belonging to them in a various celebration.

Publisher's Description

The reform of liturgical rites ordered by the Second Vatican Council necessitated a revision of the Caeremoniale Episcoporum, published in 1886. The objective of this ceremonial is to provide a liturgy for bishops that will stand as a model for all other celebrations.

The eight divisions of the book cover everything from the Mass through liturgical celebrations in connection with the government of a diocese. This is a valued reference for bishops, masters of ceremonies, diocesan liturgical offices, seminary libraries, etc. Two-color printing to separate text from rubrics.
