missal3The liturgy and Order of the Mass for CACINA Catholics closely follows the English version of the Novus Ordo of the Roman Missal. CACINA did not adopt the Roman Catholic Church's 2011 translations of the missal.

In addition, CACINA observes a small number of minor variations from the order and liturgy of the Novus Ordo. These changes are described below:

  • The Confiteor prayer (I confess to Almighty God..) is usually said during the Penitential Rite at each mass and a sacramental absolution is granted to contrite penitents.

  • The Sign of Peace follows the Prayer of the Faithful, rather than after the Lord's Prayer. The rite was moved to its current position to emphasize the unity of the congregation before the Liturgy of the Eucharist is begun. Its place here also allows the congregation to maintain a sacred and holy atmosphere throughout the Communion Rite.

  • There are minor differences in the recitation of the Nicene Creed. CACINA observes inclusive wording to reflect the teachings of Jesus Christ. We also recite the Creed without the filoque clause as it was said prior to 447 A.D. Below you will find the wording of the Nicene Creed adopted by CACINA:

   

We believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty
maker of heaven and earth, and of all that is seen and unseen.
We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only Son of God,
eternally begotten of the Father, God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, one in Being with the Father. Through him all things were made.

For us and for our salvation he came down from heaven:
by the power of the Holy Spirit he was born of the Virgin Mary, and became man. For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate; he suffered death and was buried. On the third day he rose again in accordance with the Scriptures;he ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead,
and his kingdom will have no end.

We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of Life,who proceeds from the Father.  With the Father and the Son the spirit is worshiped and glorified and has spoken through the Prophets. We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church.

We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins. We look for the resurrection of the dead,
and the life of the world to come. Amen
