Reviews for Benedict XVI and the Sacred Liturgy
Benedict XVI and the Sacred Liturgy
'Benedict XVI and the Sacred Liturgy' is the published proceedings of the first Fota International Liturgical Conference held in Cork, Ireland, in July 2008. It serves as a broad introduction to issues central to Benedict XVI's concern for authentic renewal of Catholic worship, according to the principles set out by the Second Vatican Council, and to his critique of liturgical innovations deviant from those principles.
The book explores some of the formative influences on Joseph Ratzinger's liturgical vision and points to the consistent application of those critically assimilated influences over a spectrum of issues facing modern liturgical scholarship: the recovery of the sacred, the cosmic and eschatological dimensions of Christian worship, advocacy of continuity rather than rupture in the liturgical tradition; the need for historical and intellectural honesty in discerning development (as well as in areas such as vernacular translations of the core texts of the Roman Rite); and the renewal of genuine scientific exploration of the sources of the Roman Rite.
The book is aimed at a professional and general audience. For the most part, it iseasily accessible and plots the map for a series of more specific issues to be dealt with in the Fota Liturgical Conference Series. by Colman
