I've been told by our priest and the liturgy committee that variations in the liturgy are permitted - is that right?


Full Question

I belong to a parish that regularly skips various parts of the Mass, depending on the liturgical season. The parish priest and the liturgy committee says that the rubrics allow for these variations. Is that really so?

Answer

You are being sold a bill of goods. The Church does not allow such latitude regarding the liturgy. Ask them to show you documentation. They won’t be able to. I suggest that you read Mass Confusion by Jimmy Akin.
