Is there anything special about multiple priests consecrating the Eucharist?


#1

Does having multiple priests consecrating the Eucharist mean anything or give additional special meaning to the mass?

Thanks! We’ve been looking for an answer to this for a while now.

When two or more priests/bishops celebrate Mass together this is called concelebration and it is an expression of unity. The General Instruction of the Roman Missal (GIRM) explains that concelebration “appropriately expresses the unity of the priesthood, of the Sacrifice, and also of the whole People of God” (GIRM 199).
