Folks… I don’t have time for this right now… can you help?
From a reader:
This summer, our diocese of ___ will see its first Extraordinary Form Liturgy since…well, probably since Vatican II. The Mass will be a Nuptial Mass for two of my good friends. I am merely wondering about the rubrical guidelines for a sung wedding Mass.
• Is the Asperges done before the Mass, directly after the Nuptial Blessing or not at all?
• How many servers, at minimum are needed for this particular form of the Sacred Liturgy?
• I know the engaged both would like incense, but is this permissible and is incense used at any point during the Blessing?
• What is sung by the choir and what is omitted by the server?
Fr. Fortescue’s book has started to hurt my head in trying to get it all squared away!
