Liturgy & Liturgical Law Forum: prayer when priest washes hands
prayer when priest washes hands QUESTION from Sarah July 12, 2001
Is there a specific prayer that priests say when they wash their hands before the consecration.
ANSWER by Mr. Jacob Slavek on July 14, 2001
Yes, there is a specific prayer.. the lavabo or I will wash.
Originally the last seven verses of psalm 25, it has been revised in the current missal as Lord, wash away my iniquity; cleanse me from my sin.
It is said as the priest washes his hands, and inaudibly. (but not silently)
