Q: A liturgist near here says that the unity candle has been suppressed. I can’t find that in print. It isn’t in the new rite. If not a quick easy answer let me know and I’ll keep looking.
A: OCM 29 tolerates “local customs”. As I’ve explained in my book One Love, people will argue over what is “local” and what are “customs”. But there is no suppression of the unity candle.
