Scripts and the Pope's Ordo

One of the things I often do is prepare a ritual script for the Bishop or other presiders, especially for more complex liturgies like the Chrism Mass or Rite of Election. It really is an art to put together readable and clearly laid-out scripts for presiders.

I think those who designed the Pope's Ordo (order of rituals) for his recent U.S. visit did a great job. If you haven't seen it yet, click here to see the complete set of scripts (in pdf) that the Pope used throughout his visit here.
