Sacrosanctum Concilium 76

Vatican II treats the liturgical details of ordination:

Both the ceremonies and texts of the ordination rites are to be revised. The address given by the bishop at the beginning of each ordination or consecration may be in the mother tongue.

When a bishop is consecrated, the laying of hands may be done by all the bishops present.

  1. John Heavrin says:

    “The address given by the bishop at the beginning of each ordination or consecration may be in the mother tongue.”

    This implies that the rest of the rite should continue to be in Latin.
