This is the definitive English text for use in the United States for the conferral of the Holy Orders of the diaconate, the priesthood, and the episcopate. Revised after the Second Vatican Council, these rituals consist in the laying on of hands and the Prayer of Ordination, as well as preparatory and explanatory rites that are part of these ceremonies by ancient tradition. The text has been updated in accord with the Roman Missal, Third Edition.
Although a Bishop, as the minister of Holy Orders, will be the primary user of this book, cathedral parishes and diocesan worship offices will appreciate this resource for use at ordination liturgies, as well as for study and planning. I t is a useful resource for cathedral parishes and diocesan worship offices.
