  • Can we celebrate weddings in Lent? What are the requirements to be a godparent? Should candidates choose a confirmation name other than the name they were given at baptism? Who should be in the wedding procession? Can a deacon assisting at a wedding Mass witness the vows? These and more questions - 40 in all - that priests, liturgists, music directors, liturgy committees, ministry coordinators and diocesan liturgy offices frequently ask about the seasons of the church year, the celebrating of the sacraments, praying devotions and using sacramentals are answered here with legal expertise and pastoral sensitivity by Reverend Dennis Smolarski, SJ. The answer to each question takes into account the 2002 edition of the General Instruction of the Roman Missal, as well as other official documents. And at the same time, each answer is informed with a common sense and the pastoral sensitivity of an author who has spent much of his life on both sides of the altar as presider and member of the assembly. Why should the body be cremated after the funeral liturgy? Where does the tabernacle go? Does the national flag belong in church? Look inside and find the answers to these and other questions!
