The Dedication of the New Altar at Holy Family

The liturgy of the dedication of the altar is one of the most complex and most profound liturgies of the Church. It stresses the mystery of God’s presence among us; it reminds us that God does not fit into any of our human categories. God is totally other and the liturgy stresses this in treating the altar as a sacred place where God is present and which is set apart from today onwards, exclusively for the worship of God. That is why we will bless and anoint and incense the altar.
