Q: A question keeps coming up as to where the Creed fits in when doing the Scrutinies. The Rite starts after the homily, and then goes into the Intercessions. It would seem awkward, at best, to do a Creed after this. Your thoughts? Thank you.
A: Awkward, but that is when the Creed falls: after the intercessions. The reason is that the intercessions adhere closely to the rite. The same happens in weddings that take place during a mass that requires the Creed. The practice resulted from an interpretation of article 78 of Sacrosanctum Concilium.
