Politicized and Newsy Prayer of the Faithful The General Instruction of the Roman Missal says of the prayer of the faithful: “The intentions announced should be sober, be composed with a wise liberty and in few words, and they should be expressive of the prayer of the entire community.” “Wise liberty” seems to be in short supply however.

The worst ones lead the whole liturgy astray in very distracting ways. Extended and Chatty Sign of the Peace The rite of peace has a long tradition in the Roman Rite dating to the earliest centuries.
