D. AFTERNOON OR EVENING DEVOTIONS.

Previous | Index | Next


There are various pious exercises commonly termed "Afternoon or Evening Devotions." These take place especially during the Holy Season of Lent, and during May, October, and November. Such devotional exercises are usually followed by Benediction of the Most Blessed Sacrament. Hence, apart from the regular preparations to be made for Benediction, there is little else to be prepared, except those things that are quite the same for all these occasions, viz.

(1) Surplice and stole of proper color for the season and the occasion.

(2) Processional cross; especially for the devotion of the "Stations of the Cross" during Lent.

(3) Acolytes' candlesticks with lighted candles whenever the processional cross is used, as e.g., for the "Stations of the
Cross."

Any other preparations must be made in keeping with approved local customs and as the occasion demands and the Reverend Pastor may direct.

E. BLESSINGS.

C. THE CEREMONY OF THE CHURCHING OF WOMEN.
