Only one thing. :)
Why was it left out? Probably because Bishops and their assistants did not know the Greek Alphabet -- and only used computers anyway!
could it be because of the CARPETS now!! LOL they would have to vacuum at our church :)I do miss some of our traditions.
As far as I know, they didn't take it out. When they consecrate churches on EWTN, you always see the bishops writing the Latin and Greek alphabets in an X on the floor, just like you always see them up on ladders chrisming the walls at the dedication crosses.I think it's part of the Vatican physical fitness program.I also remember seeing a comment about St. Patrick having "written 46 alphabets", by which they meant that he'd consecrated 23 churches. (Though I don't swear to the exact numbers.)
