General Instruction of the Roman Missal – Let’s make sure we know what we are doing

About our drink:

Woodford Reserve Double Oaked

An innovative approach to twice-barreled bourbon creates the rich and colorful flavor of Woodford Reserve Double Oaked. Uniquely matured in separate, charred oak barrels – the second barrel deeply toasted before a light charring – extracts additional soft, sweet oak character.

About our gear:

The General Instruction of the Roman Missal (GIRM)—in the Latin original, Institutio Generalis Missalis Romani (IGMR)—is the detailed document governing the celebration of Mass of the Roman Rite in what since 1969 is its normal form. Originally published in 1969 as a separate document, it is printed at the start of editions of the Roman Missal since 1970.

Our topic:

All of the baptized are obligated to make the liturgy as fruitful as possible. Knowing why we do what we do at Mass will help all of us fulfill that obligation. And knowing why we worship the way we do will also cause us to “[grow] constantly in holiness by conscious, active, and fruitful participation in the mystery of the Eucharist” (GIRM, 5).
