Product Description

The Second Vatican Council accomplished the most important reform of the Church's liturgy ever taken, while at the same time profoundly respecting its great tradition. The Council wanted to restore the great flow of the Church's liturgical tradition. DAYS OF THE LORD is an excellent guide for understanding the riches of the Church's liturgy. The commentaries, written by several different authors, go beyond the obvious meaning of the texts. They allow the texts to speak for themselves. It is the liturgy that enlivens Christian existence and transforms it. This book can be used as a tool to aid people to enter into the mystery of Christ and its unfolding in our time.

Editorial Reviews

Week after week, the homilist might well reach first for this book. Here is a superabundance of in-depth commentary on each of the season's readings. Fresh insights into the readings for the day will likely give the homilist a new direction for his own thoughts and reflections."

These books are highly recommended for parish libraries, for those who exercise the ministries of reading and preaching at the liturgy, pastoral liturgy teams and all who are involved with the preparation and celebration of the Eucharist.
The Way

Here is an example of the finest scriptural and liturgical scholarship that European Benedictines can offer. Preachers who have a fondness for the history of the development of feasts and seasons will relish this work.

. . . an excellent work and one which will certainly stand the test of time.
Doctrine and Life

. . . an essential resource for liturgy planners . . .
Theological Book Review

What Pius Parsch's classic The Church's Year of Grace meant to pre-Vatican II Catholics, this splendid commentary in seven volumes will mean to Catholics today and for many years to come.
Prairie Messenger

. . . will touch readers in many ways as they learn to approach the mystery of Christ.
The Canadian Catholic Review

. . . a helpful guide to those preparing liturgies, homilies and classes in the months to come.
