Many of us do not know what liturgical words mean.

I will start with one of them:

ABACUS - is not a calculation tool like those Japanese or Chinese abacus. It is a Latin word meaning a credence table, where the chalice and ciboria are first placed before the mass.

Now can you think of some more?

maniple - a vestment worn on the wrist in some rites.

Ambo - the lectern used by the cantor

Here's what I found from a google search.

Aspergilium: container used to sprinkle water.

EWTN Kids has quite a few of them on their site.

the Embolism - at the end of the Lord's Prayer but before "for Thine is the kindgom..." the priest prays, "Deliver us Lord from every evil, and grant us peace in our day...." That's the Embolism.

Some parishes skip that part.

The Libera nos, Domine? Is that allowed?

Doxology: Can refer to the "Per ipsum, et cum ipso, et in ipso", or to the Gloria Patri.

Teacher, as far as I know, the use of the maniple is not restricted to any particular rite. I've seen priests do it in the Novus Ordo, as well. It's just not required.

I didn't mean to imply it was restricted, just that some use it more than others. IMHO, there's probably a regional element also.

That's certainly true. What are generally considered "traditional vestments" by Americans are not by any means so elsewhere. I know a fellow who saw a Mass in Austria where they tried to have a layman and a laywoman do the Consecration, and the priest wore a fiddleback.

campanula - Latin word for "little" bell. Altar server rings the bell just before the consecration as well when the priest shows the host and again the chalice (cf GIRM 150).

When we were visiting in Arkansas that part was skipped. I'd never 'not' heard it so it was a bit of a shock to not have the priest saying it. I love it cause Fr. knows I'm a worry wart and so it's a message to me every day...'don't worry Kelly!'.

Lavabo: The ceremony of cleansing the celebrant's hands before the offertory
oblation in the Holy Eucharist. The word is also used to denote the bowl containing the
water, and for the small towel accompanying it. (had to use this, it's Fr. Kyle's favorite; we all got a chuckle out of learning about the lavabo bowl.)

Thanks for pointing out the site. I did notice an error there. The Pope doesn't wear a red zucchetto, but a white one like that given to my late grandmother from Pope Pius XII. They made the correction there.

And sometimes, at the genuflexion of the priest, and at His consumption of the Precious Blood.

The funny part is, 'lavabo' is the first word of the traditional ceremony. The new one goes 'lava me, Domine...' Yet the old name for both ceremony and bowl remains.

I hadn't gotten down the the z's yet. I'm glad you picked up the error.

Here's a few that I would like to know. A priest I asked didn't know:

Hosanna
Alleluia

Genuflection.

I miss the bells. My church doesn't ring them during the Consecration. But I still hear them in my head at those times they should be rung!


Chasuble: The Mass vestment that covers all the rest.

If you are “hearing bells in your head”, perhaps you should stop banging your head on the pew in front of you.
