In the local Church, first place should certainly be given, because of its significance, to the Mass at which the Bishop presides, surrounded by his Presbyterate, Deacons, and lay ministers,  and in which the holy People of God participate fully and actively, for it is there that the principal manifestation of the Church is found.
At a Mass celebrated by the Bishop or at which he presides without celebrating the Eucharist, the norms found in the Caeremoniale Episcoporum Ceremonial of Bishops should be observed. Great importance should also be given to a Mass celebrated with any community, but especially with the parish community, inasmuch as it represents the universal Church at a given time and place, and chiefly in the common Sunday celebration.
Although such Masses do not involve any special form of celebration, it is nevertheless most fitting that they be celebrated with singing, especially with the full participation of all members of the community, whether of religious or of canons.
Therefore, in these Masses all should exercise their function according to the Order or ministry they have received. Hence, it is desirable that all the Priests who are not obliged to celebrate individually for the pastoral benefit of the faithful concelebrate in so far as possible at the conventual or community Mass.
In addition, all Priests belonging to the community who are obliged, as a matter of duty, to celebrate individually for the pastoral benefit of the faithful may also on the same day concelebrate at the conventual or community Mass. Otherwise, they wear their proper choir dress or a surplice over a cassock. By Mass with the people is meant a Mass celebrated with the participation of the faithful.
Moreover, it is appropriate, in so far as possible, and especially on Sundays and Holydays of Obligation, that the celebration take place with singing and with a suitable number of ministers.

If at any celebration of Mass a Deacon is present, he should exercise his function. Furthermore, it is desirable that an acolyte, a reader, and a cantor should usually be there to assist the Priest Celebrant.
Indeed, the rite described below foresees an even greater number of ministers. The altar is to be covered with at least one white cloth. In addition, on or next to the altar are to be placed candlesticks with lighted candles: Likewise, on the altar or close to it, there is to be a cross adorned with a figure of Christ crucified. The candles and the cross with the figure of Christ crucified may also be carried in the procession at the Entrance.
On the altar itself may be placed a Book of the Gospels distinct from the book of other readings, unless it is carried in the Entrance Procession. It is a praiseworthy practice for the chalice to be covered with a veil, which may be either of the color of the day or white.
In the sacristy, according to the various forms of celebration, there should be prepared the sacred vestments cf. All who wear an alb should use a cincture and an amice unless, due to the form of the alb, they are not needed. When the Entrance takes place with a procession, the following are also to be prepared: When the people are gathered, the Priest and ministers, wearing the sacred vestments, go in procession to the altar in this order:.
If incense is being used, before the procession begins, the Priest puts some into the thurible and blesses it with the Sign of the Cross without saying anything. During the procession to the altar, the Entrance Chant takes place cf.
The cross adorned with a figure of Christ crucified, and carried in procession, may be placed next to the altar to serve as the altar cross, in which case it must be the only cross used; otherwise it is put away in a dignified place.
As for the candlesticks, these are placed on the altar or near it. It is a praiseworthy practice for the Book of the Gospels to be placed on the altar. The Priest goes up to the altar and venerates it with a kiss. Then, if appropriate, he incenses the cross and the altar, walking around the latter.
Once all this has been done, the Priest goes to the chair. When the Entrance Chant is concluded, with everybody standing, the Priest and faithful sign themselves with the Sign of the Cross. In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. The people reply, Amen.
Then, facing the people and extending his hands, the Priest greets the people, using one of the formulas indicated. The Priest himself or some other minister may also very briefly introduce the faithful to the Mass of the day. The Penitential Act follows. After this, the Kyrie is sung or said, in accordance with the rubrics cf. For celebrations where it is prescribed, the Gloria in excelsis Glory to God in the highest is either sung or said cf.
The Priest then calls upon the people to pray, saying, with hands joined, Let us pray. All pray silently with the Priest for a brief time. Then the Priest, with hands extended, says the Collect, at the end of which the people acclaim, Amen.
After the Collect, all sit. The Priest may, very briefly, introduce the faithful to the Liturgy of the Word.
Then the reader igrm to the gigm and, from the Lectionary already placed there before Mass, proclaims the First Reading, to which all listen. At the end, the reader pronounces the acclamation The word of the Lord, and all reply, Thanks be to God.
Then a few moments of silence may be observed, if appropriate, so that all may meditate on what they have heard. Then the psalmist or the reader proclaims the verses of the Psalm and the people make the response as usual. If there is to be a Second Reading before the Gospel, the reader proclaims it from the ambo. All listen and at the end reply to the acclamation, as noted above no.
Then, if appropriate, a few moments of silence may be observed. After this, all rise, and the Alleluia or other chant is sung as the liturgical time requires cf.
During the singing of the Alleluia or other chant, if incense is being used, the Priest puts some into the thurible and blesses it. Then, with hands joined, he bows profoundly before the altar and quietly says the prayer Munda birm meum Cleanse my heart. If the Book of the Gospels is on the altar, the Priest then takes it and approaches the ambo, carrying the Book gifm the Gospels slightly elevated.
He is preceded by the lay ministers, who may carry the thurible and the candles. Those present turn towards the ambo as a sign of special reverence for the Gospel of Christ. At the ambo, the Priest opens the book and, with hands joined, says, The Lord be with you, to which the people reply, And with your spirit.
Then he says, A reading from the holy Gospel, making the Sign of the Cross with his thumb on the book and on his forehead, mouth, and breast, which everyone else does as well. The people acclaim, Glory to you, O Lord. The Priest incenses the book, if incense is being used cf. The Priest kisses the book, saying quietly the formula Per evangelica dicta Through the words of the Gospel. If no reader is present, the Priest himself proclaims all the readings and the Psalm, standing at the ambo.
If incense is being used, he puts some incense into the thurible at the ambo, blesses it, and, bowing profoundly, says the prayer Munda cor grm Cleanse my heart. The Priest, standing at the chair or at the ambo itself or, if appropriate, in another worthy place, gives the Homily. When the Homily is over, a period of silence may be observed.
The Symbol or Creed is sung or recited by the Priest together with the people cf. At the words et incarnatus est, etc.
After the recitation of the Symbol or Creed, the Priest, standing at the chair with his hands joined, by means of a brief address calls upon the faithful to participate in the Universal Prayer. Then the cantor, the reader, or another person announces the intentions from the ambo or from some other suitable place while facing the people. The latter take their part by replying in supplication. At the very gitm, the Priest, with hands extended, concludes the petitions with a prayer.
When the Universal Prayer is over, all sit, and the Offertory Chant begins cf.
An acolyte or other lay minister places the corporal, the purificator, the chalice, the pall, and the Missal on the altar. It is desirable that the participation of the faithful be expressed by an offering, whether of bread and wine for the 2011 of the Eucharist or of other gifts to relieve the needs of the Church and of the poor. The offerings of the faithful are received by the Priest, assisted by the acolyte or other minister.
The gifm and wine for the Eucharist are carried to the Celebrant, who places them on the altar, while other gifts are put in another suitable place cf. The Priest accepts the paten with the bread at the altar, holds it slightly gir, above the altar with both hands and says quietly, Benedictus es, Domine Blessed are you, Lord God.
Then he places the paten with the bread on the corporal. After this, as the minister presents the cruets, the Priest stands at the side of the altar and pours wine and a little water into the chalice, saying quietly, Per huius aquae By the mystery of this water. He returns to the middle of the altar and with both hands raises the chalice a little, and says quietly, Gitm es, Domine Blessed are you, Lord God.

If, however, there is no Offertory Chant and the organ is not played, in the presentation of the bread and wine the Priest may say the formulas of blessing aloud and the people acclaim, Blessed be God for ever.
After placing the chalice on the altar, the Priest bows profoundly gir, says quietly, In spiritu humilitatis With humble spirit.

After the prayer In spiritu humilitatis With humble spirit or after the incensation, the Priest washes his hands standing at the side of the altar and, as the minister pours the water, says quietly, Lava me, Domine Wash me, O Lord.
Returning to the middle of the altar, and standing facing the people, the Priest extends and then joins his hands, and calls upon the people to pray, saying, Orate, fratres Pray, brethren. The people rise and make the response May the Lord accept the sacrifice, etc. Then the Priest, with hands extended, says the Prayer over the Offerings.
At the end the people acclaim, Amen. Then the Priest begins the Eucharistic Prayer. In accordance with the rubrics cf. By its very nature, the Eucharistic Prayer requires that only the Priest say it, in virtue of his Ordination. The people, for their part, should associate themselves with the Priest igrm faith and in silence, as well as by means of their interventions as prescribed in the course of the Eucharistic Prayer: It is most appropriate that the Priest sing those parts of the Eucharistic Prayer for which musical notation is provided.
As he begins the Eucharistic Prayer, the Priest extends his hands and sings or says, The Lord be with you. The people reply, And with your spirit. As he continues, saying, Lift up your hearts, he raises his hands.
