The question was asked and answered under the ask apologist section… but our priest skips the penitential rite when we are doing baptisms during the mass (we are only one of a few that actually follow that cannon law). He says that because we are “renewing our baptismal vows” that we are not required to do the penitential rite in this case.
I think I see his point, but I’m no expert on liturgy and cannon law.
We have a very large parish and have about 10-12 baptisms a week in 2 of the 3 masses on the weekend… so we don’t get the rite all that often.
Is this practice alright?
