Celebrating the Word of God
Our candidates for sacramental preparation attended Mass on Second Sunday of Ordinary Time for their special liturgy celebrating the Word of God. The liturgy took place after the Opening Prayer.
The Celebrant signs each child’s ears with the Sign of the Cross and says: " Hear the Word of God." The parent signs the child’s lips and says: "Speak the Word of God." The catechist presents the open lectionary to the child who places his/her hand upon it saying: "We will live the Word of God." The children were then presented with a copy of St Matthew's Gospel.
