In addition for the preparations for a new liturgical year, it’s also a cleaning-out day in the sacristy. Cycle A lectionary: to my office. Cycle B: bookmarked and in place. Gospel book gets its ribbon moved back to the start.
On the plus side, the parish’s chapter of the Knights of Columbus have underwritten the acquisition of a new vestment. Looking good.
These books, imaged right, will be retired.
The new book escaped water damage last weekend. It is bookmarked and ready to go. Will our clergy be ready? And by “our,” I mean collectively in the Roman Rite. Big weekend for the priests, especially the ones who do not benefit from having masters of ceremony pointing, turning, and gesturing.
Any plans out there for retiring the sacramentaries and associated books? Burning or burying? I think I will leave our parish’s on a bookshelf in my parish study. What about yours?
