Liturgy QUESTION from Ray Hebert February 19, 2000
I have been asked by my CCD class (9th grade) Why our pastor does not wash his hands after offering of the gifts? Can you give any options that he has in this area of the Mass? Thanks ANSWER by Mr. John Miskell on February 21, 2000 Dear Ray, My hat's off to your 9th graders for being observant. As there are no other options, your class has a valid question. The priest then washes his hands as an expression of his desire to be cleansed within. [General Instruction of the Roman Missal, #52] John Miskell Back to Index Page
