The Sacred Congregation of the Holy Office has issued the following Monito: "It has come to the attention of this Supreme Sacred Congregation that. in the translation into a modern language of the new Order for Holy Week. the words mysteriurn fidei have been omitted in the formula for the consecration of the chalice.
It has also been discovered that some priests have omitted these words in their consecrations. Therefore, this Congregation warns that it is execrable to change, mutilate, or insert interpolations into the liturigical books. The bishops are therefore charged to see to it that no one dare make changes. even the smallest, in the matter or the form of the Sacraments."
A blood transfusion centre has been opened in Lourdes and will remain open permanently beside the Pont Saint Michel.
