    Thank you for the support and suggestions in line with the Universal church and all it stands for. Been circulating with other team members as a means of standing in the gap to understand more about God’s calling in our lives.
    God bless.

    I consider your website as my number 1 resource! I appreciate everything all of you do to keep us well equipped in our ministries; thank you! God bless you!

  3. I would propose the following:

    1. That a diocesan ordinary find an appropriate Saturday evening for the celebration of Christian initiation well into the summer or even the fall. This would be the date for all parishes in the diocese.

    2. For a diocese that has not already celebrated the rite of election, schedule that celebration about six weeks earlier than the diocesan celebration of Christian initiation.

    3. That parishes conduct a season of purification and enlightenment, of reflection and renewal, during those six weeks.

    4. That parishes celebrate a votive Mass of the Most Holy Eucharist on the Thursday evening before the date set for Christian initiation. This would mean selecting not only a Saturday night which permits a ritual Mass, but a Thursday which permits a votive Mass.

    5. That parishes celebrate the Lord’s Passion, either with or without Mass, on the Friday before the date set for Christian initiation. If this is with Mass, then an appropriate Friday must also be chosen.

    6. That parishes, either after the usual anticipated Mass celebrated on Saturday evening, or replacing the anticipated Mass, celebrate a Ritual Mass of Baptism on Saturday night. This could be extended in various ways, for example a combination with Vespers with a lucenarium, several readings, to make it a Vigil of the Lord’s Day.

    So do we all holy rites. Let there be sung Non nobis and Te Deum.
