A Ritual for Laypersons
Rites for Holy Communion and the Pastoral Care of the Sick and Dying
176 pgs , 4 1/2 x 6 3/4
This book conveniently gathers in one place those rites at which a layperson may preside in the absence of a priest or deacon. Included are Holy Communion outside Mass; pastoral care of the sick; pastoral care of the dying; a selection of readings, responses, and verses from Sacred Scripture; and prayers for the dead and mourners. Now with changes to prayers as reflected in The Roman Missal, Third Edition, this small and portable book is printed in two-color type, and has a gold-stamped cover.
