Q: I have a question regarding the Kyrie—should it be done even with a sprinkling rite? I know the sprinkling rite replaces the Penitential Act, but, in GIRM 52, it says “After the Act of Penitence, the Kyrie is always begun unless it has already ….” Can you clarify?
A: The USCCB gave a L – O – N – G answer to this question starting on page 8 here: http://www.usccb.org/
