An Abundance of Graces - Reflections on Sacrosanctum Concilium
This product is unavailable
By Pamela Jackson
This thought-provoking, scholarly commentary takes a retrospective look at 'Sacrosanctum Concilium', and reflects on the Constitution in light of three questions:
What is Sacrosanctum Concilium's vision of what is actually 'going on' in the celebration of the liturgy--what is the purpose of the liturgy that was given to the Church?
What is the nature of the liturgical changes called for by the Council Fathers?
What aspects of Sacrosanctum Concilium still need to receive attention?
Discusses the impact of pre-Vatican II liturgical reformers, analyzes the implementation of Vatican II reforms in the light of the documents, and examines the beauty and richness of Sacrosanctum Concilium and considers what is still possible to do.
It features Saint Pius X's 'Motu Proprio', 'Tra le sollicitudine', Pius XII's 'Mediator Dei', and 'Sacrosanctum Concilium' in one easy-to-read appendix. Published By Liturgy Training Publications.
