Liturgical notes

The purpose of the many prefaces that enrich the Roman Missal is to bring out more fully the motives for thanksgiving within the Eucharistic Prayer and to set out more clearly the different facets of the mystery of salvation.

General Instruction of the Roman Missal, §364

Some of the Sundays of Lent have been assigned their proper preface. Today there is an assigned preface that take its motive from the gospel of the Transfiguration. This prayer recalls the affirmation given by Moses and Elijah that God’s plan is both faithful and continuous: even the impending death of Jesus looks beyond the failure of death to the glory of resurrection. So we join with the choirs of heaven in constantly worshiping the ever-faithful one. 

‘May this sacrifice, O Lord, we pray, cleanse us of our faults and sanctify your faithful in body and mind for the celebration of the paschal festivities.’

— prayer over the offerings
