Supplemental Documents for Parish Worship, Devotions, Formation and Catechesis

The Liturgy Documents, Volume Four assembles foundational documents on the history, theology, and practice of Catholic liturgy. Delving into the rich tradition of Catholic theology, each document is prefaced by a pastoral overview that explains the purpose of the document, the degree of its authority, and its practical implications. The documents included in this volume offer both theological and pastoral perspectives, and range from guidelines and instructions from the USCCB to apostolic exhortations and pastoral letters addressed to the worldwide Catholic community.

The documents included in this volume address the following topics:

  • Eucharist as Source and Summit
  • Liturgy and inculturation
  • The role of Mary
  • Concelebration
  • Catholic Preaching and Judaism
  • Liturgy and Art
  • African American Catholic Worship
  • Catechesis and the Liturgy
  • Ecumenical Concerns
  • Use of Latin Chant
  • Piety and the Liturgy
  • The prayer of the Rosary 

Commemorating the 50th Anniversary of the promulgation of Sacrosanctum Concilium, this volume assembles the liturgical documents needed by students and pastoral ministers to understand the theological, historical, and pastoral significance of this influential liturgical document.

An indispensable resource for students and pastoral ministers, this volume contains the liturgical documents needed for a thorough understanding of the history, theology, and implementation of Catholic liturgical formation, catechesis, and devotional practices.

“…Only when our liturgical celebrations are supported by a rich exposure to the many treasures found in our Catholic prayer tradition can the liturgy truly be the high point toward which the activity of the Church is directed….the large corpus of liturgical legislation attests to the importance of the liturgy, devotions, and catechesis for the life of the Church and witness to the firm belief that Christ endowed his Church this means of prayer to draw all who pray closer to God. This collection of documents will serve our Catholic community well in developing a truly dynamic and liturgically appropriate experience of worship in parishes and institutions of the Catholic Church.” —Rev. Michael S. Driscoll, Associate Professor of Sacramental Theology and Liturgy University of Notre Dame

“Taken together, the four volumes of this series make available liturgical documents that even the most resourceful scholar might not be able to find. They should be in any parish library.” —Fr. Mark G. Boyer, Columnist for Our Sunday Visitor’s The Priest
