Product Description

The modern liturgical movement owes a great debt to Solesmes monk Dom Eughne Cardine (1905-1988), whose tireless research in the ancient manuscripts uncovered the elusice secrets of Gregorian Rhythm, thus revealing some of the original pristine beauty of Gregorian chant. In this volume, Dom Cardine sums up the origin, decline and restoration of the chant, and challenges researchers to continue his work.

Editorial Reviews

The term "pilgrimage" gets tossed around casually in travel writing, but as this book demonstrates, there is a difference between it and mere tourism: When a pilgrim leaves a destination, it's as a different person. And there's no need to travel abroad -- to Lourdes, for example -- when the humble shrine of St. Jude awaits in Chicago, or a trip to New Mexico will connect you with the "holy dirt" of the Santuario de Chimayo.
Most of the sites described are Christian, but the concept of pilgrimage extends to New Age and Buddhist centers and, with a bit of stretching, Elvis's Graceland. And a Billy Graham Crusade (the pilgrimage that comes to you). Ogilbee and Riess are generally positive about the experience, conceding apparent failures but noting that sometimes the seeking is more important than the finding. While they are definitely "glass is half full" people, if there is another, more cynical take on the pilgrimage process, they'll at least acknowledge it. And, one assumes, pray for the cynic. Jerry V. Haines Washington Post November 26, 2006


A tourist, write the authors of American Pilgrimage, "is all about the destination and what can be obtained there' A pilgrim, on the other hand, aims to go to a place-external or internal-that allows "stepping back, reflecting, and spending time in greater spiritual awareness:' Mark Ogilbee and Jana Riess are both religion scholars and editors (Riess is the religion book review editor at Publishers Weekly.) They take readers along as they visit eleven places of pilgrimage in the United States.
Each site gets a chapter, and chapters are grouped in four thematic sections. Among the places they visit; the National Shrine of Saint Jude in Chicago, the Community of Jesus in Cape Cod, Mission San Juan Capistrano in California, a talk by Zen Buddhist monk and peace activist Thich Nhat Hanh, and a Billy
Graham crusade in Los Angeles (the pilgrimage that travels to you). One surprise; Elvis Presley's Graceland, a place of pilgrimage for many, is also included.
In every case, Ogilbee and Riess present sufficient information about the history of these sites, their setting and feel, and what the visitor can expect. The reader's journey through the graceful depictions of these spirit-filled destinations becomes its own sort of pilgrimage. Chapter notes and suggested resources for further information are included. Monica Tenney Church and Synagogue Library Association November 1, 2006

Riess, author of The Spiritual Traveler and PW's religion book review editor, and writer/editor Ogilbee reveal 11 American hot spots for the spiritually inclined, organized into four themes: healing, hospitality, boundary-crossing and modem "saint" devotionals. From the start, the authors distinguish the tourist-;bound for fixed locales-;from the pilgrim, who plunges into new environs "both external and internal" in the search for self-discovery. The authors' cross-country excursions yield colorful descriptions and keen observations of sites like El Santuario de Chimayo in New Mexico, where a humble hole in the ground purportedly bears restorative mud; the shrine of Sr. Jude, patron saint of hopeless causes, in working-class Chicago; a youthful, vivacious Community of Jesus in Cape Cod; and, of course, Graceland, the quintessential American pilgrimage for throngs of "Presleyterians." With discerning insight, the authors consider what makes their selections uniquely American, beyond physical location: each reflects the "porousness" and flexibility of the country's faith, which embraces an array of rituals, folklore and mysticism that spring from not only traditional religion, but also more secular spirituality and the rhythms of nature. Riess and Ogilbee wisely recognize that the psychology of taking the journey figures as much as the destination, affirming, "Pilgrimage tells us that God is everywhere."
