The first section of the ritual, marking the steps of the spiritual journey into the full communion of the Catholic Church, offers the procedures and periods that make up the full rite. The second section provides the necessary ritual for celebrating the rite in other forms. Three appendices supply additional combined rites and one optional parish celebration; acclamations, hymns, and songs; and national statutes for catechumens.
The convenience of the minister has been the guiding principle in choosing the format and designing the presentation of the rites. Each rite is preceded by a short outline, providing a concise overview of the form. The options and alternatives, distinctly indicated, are given within the rite to eliminate confusion. Introductory material, rubrics, and liturgical texts are set off typographically.
Required readings and psalms are cited only, since, to preserve liturgical norms, they will be proclaimed from a Lectionary or Bible.
Ribbon markers and gold-stamped leather-like red cover make this ritual edition a handsome addition to the sanctuary.
