In the celebration of Mass the faithful form a holy people, a people whom God has made his own, a royal priesthood, so that they may give thanks to God and offer the spotless Victim not only through the hands of the priest but also together with him, and so that they may learn to offer themselves. It can not be that an inspiration of God could have created such total ruin.

For the Lord, appeased by the oblation thereof of the Massgranting grace and the gift of penitence, forgives even heinous crimes and sins. In the parts from Therefore, O Lord, we pray to the end of Look, O Lord, upon the Sacrifice, all the concelebrants pronounce everything together as follows:. If several deacons are present, one of them may place incense in the thurible for the consecration and incense the host and the chalice as they are shown to the people.

In the absence of a Deacon, after the Universal Prayer and while the Priest remains at the chair, the acolyte places the corporal, the purificator, the chalice, the pall, and the Missal on the altar. If the vessels are purified at the altar, they are carried to the credence table by a minister.

Otherwise, all who pass before the Most Blessed Sacrament genuflect, unless they are moving in procession.
