BCL Formation Materials
Educational material on the 2002 Roman Missal is available for free on the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) website. The Bishops Committee for the Liturgy (BCL) Secretariat have written:
This is commendable, removing concerns about copyright for those educating people about the requirements of the new Roman Missal.
Unfortunately in the Priest Liturgy Guide I think the following may be misunderstood:
Certainly the General Instruction of the Roman Missal (GIRM), n. 283 does not assume everyone will receive communion under both kinds (consecrated bread and wine) at every Mass. The point intended is that the GIRM does not describe using consecrated hosts from the tabernacle.
I am surprised to see references to "THLS", This Holy and Living Sacrifice. This document has been replaced by Norms for the Distribution and Reception of Holy Communion under Both Kinds in the Dioceses of the United States of America.
But I see these as minor points. Generally I am impressed with the clarity of the instructions I have read, on the priest, deacon and reader.
