Does the Western Rite of the OC have options for a Readers Service for the Layman?

MIssä Sicca (pdf). It's basically mass without the Eucharist.

Then there are all the hours, which, unlike the ER hours, don't have a lot of parts for a priest, specifically.

If you spend long enough on this forum, you'll come away with all sorts of weird, untrue ideas of Orthodox Christianity.

I would suggest most persons in general avoid any question beginning with why.

What are the hours you refer too?

Is the missa sicca blessed for use?


In my opinion, it shouldn't.

The Hours of the Divine Office and Little Offices of the Mother of God, Cross, Trinity, or Guardian Angel may be done as lay services.

The adaptations are very simple for lay use:

1. You omit "The Lord be with you" as only a priest or deacon can utter those words.
2. You substitute "O Lord, show us Thy mercy" (R. "And grant us Thy salvation").
3. No vestments are used, the altar cover is not turned back at, say, the Magnfiicat, etc.
4. No readings are read facing the people, all are done facing east.

Voila.
