Acknowledgements of Sources
“A remarkable and much-needed book. It starts with the basics, and goes on to explore the profound depths of the Church’ s Liturgy – as described in theology and expressed in celebration. Beginners in either liturgical ministry or academic study will find they are well supported here. Those who are already old-hands will find a refresher that will encourage them to ‘up their game’! Pope Francis has recently urged the Church to return to the work of liturgical renewal. This book is a great resource for any community or individual ready to rise to the challenge and enrich their participation in the Liturgy and their ministry of the Gospel.” -- Fr Allen Morris, Chair of the Westminster Liturgy Commission
'A great resource because it has so much gathered together in the same volume, and long awaited. It will be very useful for teachers in any school for themselves, as background for RE at all levels, and for examination support. The reflections and questions will be stimulating for adults and students alike.' -- Monsignor Kevin McGinnell, Episcopal Vicar for Education and Formation, Diocese of Northampton and Chairman, Society of St Gregory
