In strict agreement with all the rules of the Church

The altar in readiness.

I was intrigued by the post on Catholic Extension about the Fr Peter learning material.  For a bit of fun I have downloaded the links and am giving them to the altar boys to do a bit of homework.  In fact, they are a remarkably useful and entertaining bit of learning.

 Dominus vobiscum.
(And, Yes, I know he shouldn't be wearing his biretta at this point.)

 Devotions in readiness.

Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament.

Actually, the accompanying notes and instructions are excellent : "Fr Peter's altar is in strict agreement with all the rules of the church."  Oh, if only it were always so - for altars, synods and  everything else.

Green cope for benediction? Clearly followed vespers, then

I think in a different post that as a boy in primary school (no - Queen Victoria was NOT on the throne) we had a priest figure - a little like Action Man - complete with all of his vestments (a white cope for Benediction) & an altar with a Big 6, altar linens, sacred vessels et al. Even the girls learned how to set up the altar although I don't recall any taking the veil. What a wonderful way to teach children now the rights & wrongs
