OMITTING CREED

Question:

Why do we often omit the beautiful Creed during Sunday Masses. According to the General Instruction of the Roman Missal no. Recitation of the profession of faith by the priest together with the people is obligatory on Sundays and solemnities. The song We Believe is an inappropriate substitution since it omits more than half the Creed.




Answer:

You are correct. The Creed is to be said. It is not an optional Prayer, except when there are baptisms during Mass, because the renewal of Baptismal promises takes its place. But that is all that should ever take it's place.
