gkrm If the Book of birm Gospels is on the altar, the priest then takes it and goes to the ambo, carrying the Book of the Gospels slightly elevated and preceded by the lay ministers, who may carry the thurible and the candles.
If incense is used, the acolyte presents the thurible to the priest and assists him while he incenses the gifts, the cross, and the altar. Immediately after the Blessing, with hands joined, the Priest adds, Ite, missa est Go forth, the Mass is ended and all reply, Thanks be to God.

When the prayer after Communion is concluded, brief announcements to the people may be made, if they are needed. The concelebrants approach the altar one by one, genuflect, and take a particle, intinct it partly into the chalice, and, holding a purificator under their mouth, consume the intincted particle. The Priest kisses the book, saying quietly the formula Per evangelica dicta Through the words of the Gospel. The Mass is made up, as it were, of two parts: The Communion chant begins while the priest is receiving the Sacrament cf.
Concelebration, which appropriately expresses the unity of the priesthood, of the Sacrifice, and also of the whole People of God, is prescribed by the rite itself for the Ordination of a Bishop and of priests, at the blessing of an abbot, and at the Chrism Mass.
After the usfcb reading comes the responsorial Psalm, which is an integral part of the Liturgy of the Word and holds great liturgical and pastoral importance, gjrm it fosters meditation on the word of God. Among the parts assigned to the priest, the foremost is the Eucharistic Prayer, which is the high point of the entire celebration. During the singing of the Alleluia or other chant, if incense is being used, the Deacon ministers to the Priest as he puts incense into the thurible. He himself begins it with a brief introduction, by which he invites uscxb faithful to pray, and likewise he concludes it with a prayer.

The fraction or breaking of bread is begun after gkrm sign of peace and is carried out with proper reverence, though it should not be unnecessarily prolonged, nor should it be accorded undue importance. In these Masses, therefore, individuals should exercise the office proper to the Order or ministry they have received. Acta Apostolicae Sedis 64p. If any of the Precious Blood is spilled, the area where the spill occurred should be washed with water, and this water should then be poured into the sacrarium in the sacristy.
In the absence of a Deacon, a duly instituted acolyte carries the sacred vessels to the credence table and there purifies them, wipes them, and arranges them as usual. He is preceded by a thurifer carrying a smoking thurible and by ministers with lighted candles. Therefore, in these Masses all should exercise their function according to the Order or ministry they have received. Eucharistic Prayer I, or the Roman Canon This will best be accomplished if, with due regard for the nature and the particular circumstances of each liturgical assembly, the entire celebration is planned in such a way that it leads to a conscious, active, and full participation of the faithful both in body and in mind, a participation burning with faith, hope, and charity, of the sort which is desired by the Church and demanded by the very nature of the celebration, usccg to which the Christian people have a 20111 and duty by reason of their Baptism.

In that case, the reader walks in front of the Priest but otherwise walks along with the other ministers. If incense is used, before the procession begins, the priest puts some in the thurible and blesses it with the Sign of the Cross without saying anything.
Once the people have gathered, the priest and ministers, clad in the sacred vestments, go in procession to the altar in this order: In order, however, that the people may be able to sing the Psalm response more readily, texts of some responses and Psalms have been chosen for the various seasons of the year or for the various categories of Saints. At the ambo, the priest opens the book and, with hands joined, says, Dominus vobiscum The Lord be with youand the people respond, Et cum spiritu tuo And also with you.
