Item description for The Deacon at Mass: A Theological and Pastoral Guide by William T. Ditewig...
Overview THE DEACON AT MASS situates the role of the Deacon at Liturgy based on the new General Instruction on the Roman Missal (GIRM). A step-by-step handbook for deacons through the eucharistic celebration, this text looks at everything a deacon MUST do (read the gospel), MAY do (preach a homily), and MAY never do (sing the concluding doxology). Written in an easy-to-read, conversational style, THE DEACON AT MASS provides lucid and helpful tips for deacons to make their service at Mass more rewarding both for them and their parishioners. Study questions follow each chapter.Far more than a simple "how-to" manual, this book offers the "why" behind the "what" of liturgical practice. As such, it is the perfect accompaniment/sequel to the author's best selling 101 Questions & Answers on Deacons.
