LITURGY OF THE EUCHARIST

The Liturgy of the Eucharist breaks open the Body of Christ through sacramental action. At this time, we do as Jesus commanded as we take, bless, break and share the bread and wine, consecrated into His Body and Blood.
 

Preparation of the Gifts

If you wish a "soloist" song, the time during the Preparation of the Gifts is the only appropriate moment for such during Mass. Otherwise, a song sung by the entire assembly is appropriate.
