Catholic Word of the Day: RUBRICS, 01-16-13
Catholic ^ | 01-16-13 | Fr. John Hardon's Modern Catholic Dictionary

Posted on 01/16/2013 9:23:58 AM PST by Salvation

Featured Term (selected at random):


Originally red titles of law announcements. They are the directive precepts or liturgical provisions found in the Missal, including the Sacramentary and lectionary, and in the ritual, to guide bishops, priests, or deacons in the Eucharistic liturgy, the administration of sacraments and sacramentals, and the preaching of the Word of God. Rubrics are printed in red and are either obligatory or merely directive, as the context makes amply clear. (Etym. Latin rubrica, red earth; title of law written in red; hence law instruction.)

All items in this dictionary are from Fr. John Hardon's Modern Catholic Dictionary, © Eternal Life. Used with permission.

TOPICS: Apologetics; Catholic; History; Theology
KEYWORDS: catholic; mass; prayer
We think of rubrics as the movements during Mass, the sign of the Cross, striking the breast during The Confiteor, genuflecting, kneeling, the different actions during the Triduum Masses, etc.
