Every liturgical celebration follows a ritual which is marked by rubrics (highlighted in red print) describing in detail what are to be observed, in terms of wording or physical postures. A certain flow is followed to enable the congregation to be engaged in the celebration. For example, there are designated periods of pauses and silence in the Lectionary.

WE ARE CALLED
Rising from the waters of Baptism, we are…each one of us…are named as witnesses to the whole of Christ’s Paschal Mystery: his suffering, dying and rising.
All of us are called to give thanks and praise to God for all he has done to us. All of us are called to live our thanksgiving by doing the work of justice and mercy in our own respective way. Whatever our individual vocation, it is our Baptism that identifies us as one who shares in the Lord’s ministry.
