First, however, they purify their hands in the smoke of the censer.<br /><br />These are all living liturgies with a history of continual use in the Catholic Church.<br /><br />Remember--the Latin Rite is NOT all there is to the Catholic Communion of Churches.Jackhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/01133668737743486061noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-6570809348314913884.post-48435776046072264812010-07-06T15:46:05.989-04:002010-07-06T15:46:05.989-04:00Dear Fr.
