Chapter III of the RDCA continues with few changes (except as noted in section 2, yesterday):
The simple entrance of the dedication rite is reproduced, almost word for word, sections 3-12 follow II, 43-52.
In the Liturgy of the Word (13-14), readings are taken from among those in the commons, excluding Nehemiah and Psalm 19. No lights or incense is used at the proclamation of the Gospel. Sections 15-16 follow 55-56 in chapter II.
The invitation to prayer (17), litany of the saints (18-20), and depositing relics (21) occurs just as outlined in chapter II, 57-61. The dedication prayer follows (22); then anointing of the altar and walls (23-25), just as in chapter II, 63-65). The altar is incensed (26-28) and lit (29-31) as in the previous chapter (66-71).
The Liturgy of the Eucharist proceeds (32-40), including inaugurating the Blessed Sacrament chapel, as it was described in 72-85.
We’ll move on to chapter IV tomorrow.
