Humeral veil

In Paul Turner's Blog by Paul Turner

Q: On Good Friday, according to the Missal, #22, the Deacon puts on a humeral veil and is accompanied by lighted candles when bringing the Blessed Sacrament to the altar. After Communion, #29, it says the Deacon takes it to a place prepared. There is no mention of a humeral veil or being accompanied by candles at this time. Is this correct to have no humeral veil or candles when he removes the ciborium?

Thank you!


A: I commented on this in my book Glory in the Cross. No humeral veil or candles are needed. It is a simple act of reposition.
