There are two churches here in Tucson that regularly omit the Profession of Faith with nothing in it’s place. When they do do it, they have to put the words up on the wall (projector) because they don’t have it committed to memory. I actually asked the priest about this, and he said that the Profession of Faith is like the “Pledge of Allegiance” and is not absolutely required. There’s no difference between a daily Mass and Sunday Mass…a Mass is a Mass is a Mass.
They also omit other things–like they go directly from the “Our Father” to exchanging the sign of peace–as soon as the Our Father is over, everyone starts shaking hands.
They also say “In the breaking of the bread we shall know Him” instead of “Lord, I’m not worthy to receive You, but only say the word and I shall be healed”.
There are other ‘little’ things about these two churches that bother me, so I don’t normally attend either one.
