Q. I’ve come across conflicting opinions as to the use of the Creed during weekday masses of the Easter Octave. Could you please clarify if the Creed is said (or sung)?
A. I find this confusing too. I have written that the Creed should be included at daily mass during the Octave, but others have challenged me because it isn’t mentioned in the missal. I thought that all solemnities include the Creed, but I’ve been reminded that all solemnities include three readings, which the Easter Octave does not. So it seems that the Octave follows its own rules, and perhaps the intention is indeed that the Creed is not included at the daily mass on weekdays.
