I was thinking last week that I really need to take a jug of iced tea on a sunny day, sit in my backyard, and read MR3 through cover to cover. Anybody done that yet? The reading of the MR3, that is?
I was noticing that if a parish opts to unveil the cross for veneration than a violet veil is what they are directed to use. The previous edition of the Roman Missal did not specify the veil color–my parish used to use red. I’m thinking of switching to the Second Form of Showing the Holy Cross. What about you?
Suppose you were in a situation in which unveiling had a long attachment in your community, and you find yourself a few days before Good Friday–or even the morning of–with just a red veil. Sit in the armchair and render judgment.
