I desire to redirect you to our friends at Rorate who have presented some exquisite reflections and directives from His Eminence Malcolm Card. Ranjith, Archbishop of Colombo. May he be emulated far and wide.
You may remember that last year Card. Ranjith in his diocese reinstituted kneeling for Communion, which is to be received on the tongue.
During March the Cardinal informed his clergy that he personally was going to take stock of the manner liturgical worship in the diocese. He is trying to eliminate liturgical abuses. He is, for example, insisting on proper vestments, for example, and offers a fine reflection on vestments.
And there is this:
And so dear fathers, kindly ensure that in each Church in your parishes there is an adequate supply of a sufficient number of amices, girdles, stoles and chasubles for daily use. When I come for my parish visits starting from January next year, I will check on this matter personally. Kindly begin celebrating your daily sacrifice of the Eucharist properly clad and that means dressed with the alb, with or without the amice, the girdle, stole and chasuble. This should start immediately. The Auxiliary Bishops and Episcopal Vicars should kindly ensure that this is strictly followed in your areas.
It is good to read that a diocesan bishop is taking such steps, personally, to improve the ars celebrandi of his clergy.
WDTPRS kudos to Card. Ranjith.
