Children’s Liturgy of The Word

Children’s Liturgy of the Word occurs in the first half of the Mass, when the children are invited to join a special reading and explanation of the Scripture passages for that day. The children usually go to another part of the church building to receive age-appropriate teachings. Children are also often invited to lead in other areas of the Mass during a Children’s Liturgy, like leading the sacred music or Prayers of the Faithful.

Holy Rosary

The Holy Rosary is a series of meditative prayers. These prayers are represented by a string of beads, called rosary beads, which are usually held in one’s hand to keep track of the prayers. Catholics are called to meditate on certain mysteries of Jesus’ and Mary’s lives when they pray the Rosary. The mysteries of the Rosary are different for each day and consist of the Joyful, Luminous, Sorrowful, and Glorious mysteries.

Adoration

Catholics believe during the Mass when the bread and wine are consecrated that they become the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ. Sometimes more bread and wine are consecrated than is needed to be distributed at Communion at a single Mass. And while the Blood of Christ is consumed, the Body of Christ, called the Blessed Sacrament, can be kept and distributed to the sick or at another Mass. A priest can also present the Blessed Sacrament to the congregation for an extended time in a liturgy called the Exposition and Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament. The priest displays the Blessed Sacrament in a golden frame, called a monstrance, so that the congregation can look upon Jesus and adore Him. This a contemplative time when people can pray while gazing upon Jesus and is commonly called Adoration. At the end of Adoration, the priest will place a humeral veil around his shoulders, hold the monstrance aloft and bless the people with the Blessed Sacrament. This blessing is called Benediction.
