Many parishes around the world share one priest. What’s a liturgist to do for the Triduum? A person from nearby Kansas gains the attention of Zenit’s Liturgy priest, Father Edward McNamara with this query:
If a priest is pastor of more than one parish church and divides up the celebration of the Easter Triduum among these parishes, should he, for the liturgical action on Good Friday, consecrate extra hosts on Palm Sunday at the church where the Good Friday liturgical action is celebrated? Or should he transport extra hosts for the liturgical action in his car from the church where he celebrated the Mass of the Lord’s Supper? Would it be permitted to allow the faithful to venerate the cross on Good Friday after the Stations of the Cross celebrated at a time and church distinct from the primary liturgical action of Good Friday? Would this veneration as devotion, not as liturgical rite, be inadvisable because it could confuse people?
Sit in the purple chair and make a decision. Or go to this week’s liturgy page and see what one expert advised. Your own decisions and commentary on Father McNamara’s are welcome.
