Featured Term (selected at random):
MASS OF THE PRESANCTIFIED
The concluding service on Good Friday. The priest returns the Host consecrated on Holy Thursday from the repository to the main altar. After the recitation of several prayers, including the Our Father, the priest consumes the Host. He then gives Communion to the faithful. All the hosts received have been consecrated before, since there really is no Mass on Good Friday. The liturgy terminates abruptly after Holy Communion.
