In this collection of essays, outstanding scholars and pastors reflect on the many "languages" of the liturgy--the aural, spatial, temporal, kinetic, and iconic-which blend together into a single voice, a single act of praise. Exploring these many languages, understanding them, teaching about them, fine-tuning them--such has been the preoccupation and the passion of Gilbert Ostdiek, O.F.M., the man whom this book honors. Whether in classroom or workshop, seminar or committee, Father Ostdiek has spent his professional life searching for the right voice with which to praise God and teaching others to love these many voices in all their richness and symbolic depth. In Finding Voice to Give God Praise the conversation continues.
