This publication of the Holy See through the Vox Clara Committee contains the rites most frequently celebrated by the Bishop, including the text of the Rites of Ordination of a Bishop, of Priests, and of Deacons as approved and confirmed for the Dioceses of the United States of America and many other countries. This text is updated so as to harmonize with The Roman Missal (2011). While The Pontificalcontains similarly updated texts of The Institution of Lectors and Acolytes, The Blessing of Abbots and Abbesses, The Consecration of Virgins and The Rite of Confirmation, this edition contains the older translation of the Blessing of Oils, which formerly appeared in The Sacramentary.
All the rites in the book are the original ICEL texts, with technical updates so as facilitate the Bishop in his liturgical ministry and to avoid questions arising about compatibility with The Roman Missal.
This Clothbound Edition contains large, easy-to-read type, durable Smyth-sewn binding, satin ribbon markers, and specially commissioned, full-color artwork based on fifteenth-century manuscript illustrations.
