The Spirit of the Liturgy


In stock (can be backordered)

This edition includes the earlier classic work with the same title by Servant of God Romano Guardini, a book that helped Ratzinger to “rediscover the liturgy in all its beauty, hidden wealth and time-transcending grandeur, to see it as the animating centre of the Church, the very centre of Christian life.” Other important topics contained are the essence of worship; the Jewish roots of Christian prayer; the relationship of the liturgy to time and space; sacred art and music; and the active participation of the faithful in the Mass.

“How much we owe Cardinal Ratzinger for what has come to be known as ‘the new Liturgical Movement’. . . . The Spirit of the Liturgy is a singularly rich resource and guide in our day, as are the other personal liturgical writings of the Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI, and indeed his liturgical magisterium as Supreme Pontiff which retains its validity.”
Cardinal Robert Sarah, from the Foreword
