Is the priest allowed to combine the offertory prayers into one?


After we bring the Bread and Win to the Alter can the prayers are prayed over the gifts be combined into one prayer or must they besperated?

Dear Michael,

While the rubrics do give the priest flexibility in whether to say the words aloud or quietly, they do not allow for the combining of the two prayers into one.

Fr. Vincent Serpa, O.P.
