The Traditional Mass and the Laity: a Position Paper from the FIUV
|The congregation is blessed with incense as the celebrant carries on the prayers and|
ceremonies at the Altar. Dominican Rite Mass in Oxford.
Today I am posting a new 'Position Paper' on the 1962 Missal published by the FIUV, the Foederatio Internationalis Una Voce. This addresses the argument, made from time to time, that by not having as many lay people involved in the liturgy in roles such as Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion, Lector, leader of the Prayers of the Faithful and so on the Traditional Mass 'excludes' people, and fails to foster their participation.
I've put more commentary on my own blog here.
