So, I’ve beep poking around the internet a lot lately looking at the pre Vatican II forms of the sacramanets, and when coming across the pre Vat rite for marriage outside mass at the fisheaters website, I was stuck by how short it seems to be. The N.O. marriage rite has an introduction, readings, and homily - making it resemble a Mass more, while this older ceremony doesn’t have readings and whatnot. Is this account of the rite of marriage outside mass completely accurate, or does the rite still have readings and more to it than what is posted at fisheaters? If it is accurate, it would seem to be a rare case where the older form is shorter text-wise than the new form.
Also, parts of it seem to be rendered solely in vernacular - is this also the standard practice for the 1962 marriage rite?
Thanks in advance,
