Word of the Day: Ambrosian Rite

AMBROSIAN RITE. The liturgical rite used in the Church of Milan, Italy, so called from St. Ambrose (340-97), Bishop of Milan. Most probably he is responsible for its principal characteristics. It is also called the Milanese Rite. Some features are: a procession with the oblations of bread and wine before the Offertory; the litany chanted by the deacon; the Creed said after the Offertory. The ritual is also used elsewhere.

Comments are subject to deletion if they are not germane. I have no problem with a bit of colourful language, but blasphemy or depraved profanity will not be allowed. Attacks on the Catholic Faith will not be tolerated. Comments will be deleted that are republican (Yanks! Note the lower case 'r'!), attacks on the legitimacy of Pope Francis as the Vicar of Christ (I know he's a material heretic and a Protector of Perverts, and I definitely want him gone yesterday! However, he is Pope, and I pray for him every day.), the legitimacy of the House of Windsor or of the claims of the Elder Line of the House of France, or attacks on the legitimacy of any of the currently ruling Houses of Europe.
