Confirmation readings

In Paul Turner's Blog by Paul Turner

Q: We are celebrating the Sacrament of Confirmation on the Third Sunday of Easter so we’ll be using the readings for the day. Do we have to use the psalm or can we use Psalm 104?


A: Sorry you’re having trouble with the blog. Occasionally people report difficulties with it, but I get lots of questions through it. I’m not sure what causes the discrepancy. You’re always welcome to email me here.

You’re correct that Ritual Masses may not be celebrated on the Sundays of Easter Time, so a confirmation on that Sunday requires the readings and presidential prayers of the day.

You have the same options as always for the psalm. GIRM 61 permits the use of another psalm instead of the one assigned in the lectionary.
