Liturgy Preparation

Liturgy pages composed by Fr Bernard Cotter PP, Newcestown, Bandon, Co Cork. They are offered to the hard-pressed presider as a resource — to be printed out and brought to the altar for Mass, a one-page tool to use in the Liturgy. The pages as previously published by Veritas Publications Ltd in Liturgy Preparation for 2007 (Year C) are added here weekly.
