Description

A practical reference to liturgical law, The Liturgical Environment calls to mind the norm of active participation as the guiding principle for al liturgical celebration. Each chapter considers Built of Living Stones and other ecclesial documents that pertain to the particular object under discussion, the theology found in the documents, the praxis that flows from the theology, and questions for reflection and discussion. As in the first edition, the concern remains the theology of environment and the praxis, of practice, flowing from it, which should exemplify the principle of active participation. Using the newest documents available, this second edition explores the guidelines for liturgical environment and how they foster the active participation of the people in liturgy. This book will serve as a handy reference for sacristans, designers, decorators, renovators, al liturgical ministers, and can easily be employed in study and discussion groups.
