1. FOR THE MASS.

Prepare vestments and altar as usual for "Low Mass" or "Missa Cantata," etc.

2. FOR THE BLESSING OF THE CANDLES.

The candles used for the blessing of throats are specially blessed for that purpose. Special holders for these candles are obtainable. They are very practical and prevent the melting wax from dripping on the floor, etc. The candles are made ready in the sacristy. The holy water pot and sprinkler are placed ready for use. The priest usually blesses these candles before Mass while vested in alb and stole and before putting on the chasuble. Should they be blessed at some other time, then prepare as follows:
