Bells and the Elevations During Papal Masses

The following applies to all archpatral masses, regardless of solemnity.


1. The altar bells are not rung at any point during archpatral masses.

2. At the elevation of the Host, the archfather elevates the host as usual. Then at the height of the elevation, he makes a semi-circle, turning first to the Epistle side, then to the Gospel side, and then returning to the centre.

3. The same semi-circle is repeated for the elevation of the Chalice.
