Sacred Heart of Jesus

Rites & Rituals
of the Catholic Church --

  • The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in Latin & English.
  • Profession of the Catholic Faith is used by converts to Catholicism, be they Novus Ordo, Protestant or any other religion.
  • The Rite of Ordination presents each of the steps toward the priesthood, including the Tonsure, the 4 Minor Orders of Porter, Reader, Exorcist and Acolyte, and the 3 Major Orders of Subdeacon, Deacon and Priest.
  • Consecration of a Bishop is the traditional rite used to consecrate a bishop. With the future papal election in the hearts and minds of the faithful, this rite becomes extremely important.
  • Exorcism - This rite could be used as a solemn exorcism (an official and public ceremony, in Latin), to expel the devil. It would then be said by a priest, in the name of the Church and only with a Bishop's permission. The faithful also may say it in their own name, for the same purpose, as any approved prayer. Its use is recommended whenever action of the devil is suspected, causing malice in men, violent temptations and even storms and various calamities.
