When we celebrate Sacraments in a beautiful way, we teach them well and convey the meaning of them to all, without the need to explain. Liturgies in the parishes need to give these celebrations the dignity they inherently have.
Some reminders that are basic to all celebrations of the Sacraments:
1. USE the ritual book-- it is there for a purpose: it contains the theology of the ritual and the rubrics. There is no better resource.
2. SCRIPTURE is sacred--don't treat it violently by dissecting it to be read by a group of people and don't violate it with ill-trained or NON-trained readers. Do NOT skip it for the sake of time.
3. PARTICIPATION is not necessarily about everyone doing something, but about letting ourselves be changed in the Spirit by the mystery of the celebration
4. SUNDAY celebration of Eucharist is the norm for most celebrations of the Sacraments.
