Built of Living Stones 100: The Role of the Church Building in Other Liturgical Rites

Sections 100-121 address the needs of various liturgical rites in a church building. Speaking for the people of the Church, the primary focus is always on the assembly–those for whom public rites are celebrated:

§ 100 § The church building is the space for the celebration of the other sacraments, in addition to the Eucharist. While preserving the primary focus upon the eucharistic assembly and the unity and integrity of the building as a whole, the design of the church must also accommodate the needs of these rites.

The roadmap on BLS for the next week or so includes a very briefly discussion of initiation (BLS 101), followed by Orders (102), Penance (103-105), Marriage (106-108), Anointing of the Sick (109), Funerals (110-114), the Liturgy of the Hours (115), Sunday Celebrations in the Absence of a Priest (116), the ambry (117), and the Rite of Dedication of a Church and Altar (118-121).
