Holy People, Holy Place Rites for the Church’s House
This book is about the rites that the Church uses in and on its own house, rites of dedicating new or renovated places of worship, and rites for keeping the annual anniversary of dedication. You’ll also find rites of blessing for new furnishings, a rite for a sacred place that has been desecrated, and rites of thanksgiving for a place of worship that is being closed. The official text for the rite for the dedication of a church, often difficult to find, is included, accompanied by a commentary. An invaluable resource if you are building or renovating, for artists and architects.
