?To grasp the deeper meaning of liturgical rites and norms, a commentary is essential. To grasp the pastoral, catechetical, and theological implications and nuances of the General Instruction, a commentary is essential. Liturgical norms and guidelines by themselves do not convey their full rationale or historical background. Only a studied analysis can produce the proper perspective and theological insight necessary for a comprehensive understanding.? ?From the preface by Bishop Donald Trautman The 2002 Institutio Generalis Missalis Romani (IGMR) comes at an important moment in the history of Roman Catholicism. The Church has come through the dramatic reforms of Vatican II and more than a generation has engaged in the contemporary liturgical practices. New churches have been built and texts and songs written that reflect the post?Vatican II approach to liturgy. In view of these many changes there are yet concerns about what norms best articulate the liturgical vision embedded in the documents of Vatican II and what directives are most appropriate for shaping the full, active, and conscious participation of the faithful.This commentary by members of the Catholic Academy of Liturgy is attentive to these concerns. While maintaining a balanced view of the revisions, the authors provide thoughtful analysis of the theological, pastoral, and ecclesial implications of the 2002 IGMR. Several prefatory chapters reflecting on the overall significance of the current Instruction are followed by a concise and meaningful chapter-by-chapter commentary. In addition to the full text of the Instruction in Latin and English, readers will find a varied and rich commentary by top liturgical scholars. No single author?s viewpoint dominates, and yet the authors offer a consistent, readable text for everyone interested in the current state of liturgy in the Catholic Church.

Thousands of readers have found Fr. Mark Boyer’s The Liturgical Environment: What the Documents Say to be a useful compendium of the church’s law and guidelines on the liturgical environment. Rooted in the norm of active participation as the guiding principle for all liturgical celebration, each chapter considers the ecclesial documents that pertain to the particular objects under discussion, the theology found in the documents, and the praxis that flows from the theology. Now in its third edition, The Liturgical Environment has proven to be an essential resource for all those involved in planning, building, renovating, decorating, and worshiping in a sacred environment. This new edition is significantly expanded and revised to take into account important material from the Third Edition of the Roman Missal, the new General Instruction of the Roman Missal, Pope Benedict’s apostolic exhortation Sacramentum Caritatis, and the Vatican’s Instruction on the Eucharist, Redemptionis Sacramentum. Additional material has been added on celebrating the parish feast day, principles involved in decorating, and fakery in the liturgical environment. New information on the font and various baptismal scenarios for the Easter Vigil is also included. Three new chapters focus on celebrating marriages, funerals, and anointing the sick; on the concept of progressive solemnity in the liturgy; and on liturgical furniture for conference use when Mass is not celebrated in a church. Finally, new discussion questions present opportunities for reflection and discussion.

Ceremonies of the Liturgical Year

According to the Modern Roman Rite

The liturgy of the Catholic Church is the action by which Jesus Christ unites the members of the Church in glorifying God. It makes people holy through words, music, action and signs. The Eucharist is intended to be the most powerful means of union with our God, with the saints in heaven and with each other, and is to be a foretaste of the praise of God given in joy by the saints in heaven. As we move through the whole of the year, the Church is united with the mysteries of Christ's earthly life so as to come closer to her Lord and Saviour. Monsignor Peter Elliott provides scholarship and many years’ experience and love of the liturgy. His previous work Ceremonies of the Modern Roman Rite has helped many people to celebrate our liturgy with attention and devotion. This present work is a guide to the most important moments of the Church year from Advent and Christmas to Holy Week, Corpus Christi and to the Solemnity of Christ the King. His book has been a long-awaited guide to those who wish to celebrate the events of the Church year with dignity, devotion, and deep faith. “Monsignor Elliot is one of the most insightful and reliable liturgists writing today. The rubrics of the Roman Rite are not self-explaining, but with Elliot's work safely in reach, a generation of liturgists raised without a rich training in tradition can confidently approach the Ritual and be more respectful of the faithful's fundamental right to sound worship.”—Dr. Edward Peters Institute for Pastoral Theology, Ave Maria University

This collection of Masses in honor of the Blessed Virgin Mary is a witness to the many ways and reasons Christians have honored the Mother of Jesus. The forty six formularies that are distributed over the seasons of the liturgical year as follows: three for Advent; six for Christmas; five for Lent; four for Easter; and twenty eight for Ordinary Time. The celebrations for Ordinary Time are further subdivided into three sections that honor the Blessed Virgin under titles (1) derived chiefly from Scripture or that express Mary's bond with the Church; (2) that refer to her fostering the spiritual life of the faithful; and (3) that suggest her compassionate intercession on behalf of the faithful. Volume 1: Sacramentary contains the euchological texts, entrance and communion antiphons, and, in an appendix, several formularies for solemn blessings at the end of Mass. Three ribbon markers. Volume 2: Lectionary provides the biblical readings assigned to each Mass, together with the responsorial psalms and the alleluia verse or verse before the gospel reading.

And so here is a chance for the modern reader, engaged in various daily tasks, to spend a few moments with the Pope each day of the liturgical year, contemplating his reflections on the mystery and the example of Christ; and on the church, man, the family, the lives of the saints, the meaning of holidays, and the place of faith in daily life. His personal concerns as expressed in these passages include such topics as "Sharing with Others," "To Be in Peace," "Consumer Society," "Family Prayer," and "The Great Divine Trial," about the meaning of his near-assassination. Through these pages of calm reflection each day of the year, all will find a moment of peaceful repose from the occupations of life.
