Translating Tradition

By Jeffery, Peter

In this book, a chant historian reads Liturgiam Authenticam.  Peter Jeffery provides an extensive study of this important document, section by section.  Father Michael Joncas has recommened Translating Tradition as one of the best commentaries on the document.  Bryan Spinks says that "this book is crucial reading for those concerned with Western liturgical evolution and the possible course of future revision."  Maxwell Johnson says that "Peter Jeffery has provided us with a superb and much needed analysis of the controverisal document, Liturgiam Authenticam.  This [book] should be required reading for all who seek a balanced approachto the questions . . . arising from the translation of liturgical texts." Gabrielle Winkler has praised the author as a scholar of outstanding merit.  From 1993 to 2010, he has been the Scheide Professor of Music History at Princeton University, where he received his doctorate in 1980.

Missale Romanum

Missale Romanum

By Estevez, George Medina

This is a beautiful, well bound missal, 9" x l2", with fine quality paper, admirable illlustrations, large print, and four silk ribbons.  The front cover has a gold inlay of Christ the Teacher.  This volume is intended for use at the altar.  It is three inches thick.   Rubrics are presented in red.  There are special tabs for the Eucharistic Prayers and parts thereof. This edition is distinguished by carefully prepared musical settings of various parts of the Mass, especially the prefaces of the Eucharistic Prayer.  This music is presented in the traditional, four-line staff of Gregorian Chant.  This 2002 edition supplants the previous edition, that of 1975.  Many new saints, for example, have been added to the calendar since the second edition.    With the exception of Kyrie, eleison, this missal is entirely in Latin, including the introductions and indexes, which are substantial. The Eucharistic Prayers for Reconciliation and for Special Occasions are presented with the familiar four Eucharistic Prayers.  Those for children's Masses are in an appendix.    Although this book bears the title Missale Romanum, there are noScripture readings provided; these are availabled in the Lectionary.  Hence, as with previous editions, this book is more a sacramentary than a missal.  This is why the Americans titled previous translations as a sacramentary.

From Age to Age: How Christians Have Celebrated the Eucharist

By Foley, Edward

In this book, the author details the history of the Christian Eucharist, the Mass, from its beginnings in Jewish liturgy to the present. Father Foley, OFM, Cap., does not deal just with the texts of the Mass; he also provides extensive commentary on architecture, music, and sacred vessels. This book is profusely illustrated with drawings, maps, music, and photographs. The book concludes with an extensive glossary, a chapter-by-chapter bibliography, and a 19-page index. Such documentation bears witness to the Father Foley's scholarship and reliability. The author holds a Ph.D. in liturgical studies from the University of Notre Dame, from the early 1970s. His work, as you would expect, is well researched and theologically oriented. Father Foley also has done graduate work in music and so is especially sensitive to this dimension of Christian celebration. He is currently professor of liturgy and music at the Catholic Theological Union (CTU) in Chicago.

The Place of Christ in Liturgical Prayer

By Jungmann, Josef A

The late Balthasar Fischer said that this classic work "represents a milestone in twentieth century liturgical studies." In this book, Jungmann showed clearly for the first time that per Christum was a precious legacy from early times. Every liturgical act takes account of Jesus Christ as mediator, as intercessor. Fischer says that this was a very influential insight. First of all, this concept helped give a firm foundation to liturgical piety. Second, this concept clarified the nature of presidential prayer in the liturgy, especially the Eucharistic Prayer, the Anaphora. No issue in the liturgy could be more central than this: understanding clearly the role of Christ as mediator of our liturgical prayer. With extensive footnotes (on the corresponding page) and other documentation, The Place of Christ in Liturgical Prayer represents the highest level of scholarly research. Greek and Latin citations, untranslated, abound. Conclusively, Jungmann demonstrates that the Eucharistic Prayers (the Anaphoras) and the other public prayers of the priest or bishop largely are directed to God through Christ, from earliest times, including the time of the New Testament. It was only beginning in the fourth century, especially in reaction to the Arian heresy, that public prayer in some places came to be directed to Christ. At the time, this was a legitimate and appropriate way to defend the true faith. Now, centuries later, he says, it is possible to emphasize the original pattern of Christian prayer, in part because of its value for our faith.

Worship: Initiation and the Churches

By Mitchell, Leonel

In this book, the author traces the history of the rites of initiation and shows how Churches today are converging in their baptismal practice. Though written in an ecumenical spirit, the author neither avoids problems nor minimizes the differences that remain among various liturgical traditions. He has himself been involved directly in continuing reform of initiation rites in the Protestant Episcopal Church in the USA, usually simply known as the Episcopal Church. He has also taught at the University of Notre Dame and at Seabury Western Theological Seminary. While previously published, the essays in this book have been updated and revised by the author; they reflect his sustained, competent, and scholarly work in this specific area of liturgical studies, since 1961.

Ceremonial of Bishops

By International Commission on English in the Liturgy

Sturdy, smyth-sewn binding. 340 pages. This is the exceptionally extensive book of guidelines for all liturgies presided over by a bishop. The book is remarkable in this edition for its thorough explanation of theology, not just rubrics. Moreover, the Ceremonial represents genuine development, in accord with the impetus of the Constitution on the Liturgy (1963). The "General Considerations" at the beginning of the book in this regard are especially significant.
