Priest, deacon and cleric (dressed as subdeacon) with assistant priest in cope and acolytes and thurifer, with choir and other ministers, assemble at the foot of a step ladder. The priest sotto voce says:
Priest: Fratres, renovemus. Brethren, let us change.
Ministers: Sancte Pater, cur renovemus? Holy Father, why should we change?
Having reverenced the step ladder all depart, with lighted candles, singing Lux Aeterna accompanied by musicians on period instruments.
