Communio Praesanctificatorum

Communio Praesanctificatorum the reception on Good Friday by the priest of the reserved sacrament in the Roman Church, as follows: The celebrant places it on the paten, and then on the corporal. In the meantime the deacon puts wine and the sub-deacon water into the chalice, which, however, are neither blessed nor consecrated on this day. The celebrant next places the chalice on the altar, the deacon covering it with the pall. The celebrant then incenses the offerings and altar, washes his hands, and recites the Orate Fratres and Pater Noster. Then all kneel to worship the sacrament, which the celebrant, without any prayer, divides into three parts, placing one in the chalice. He then communicates himself of both sacrament and chalice (with the particle), and proceeds to receive the ablutions in the ordinary way. SEE PRAESANCTIFICATIO. SEE COMMUNION OF CHILDREN.
