It’s always exciting when that box of books arrives and it is the latest of one’s own to be published. I’m really pleased to be working with Angelico Press on Letters on Liturgy. They’ve produced a handsome cover for a little book I hope will have some influence and help turn the tide of the decay of the liturgy in our age. Letters on Liturgy is not an expert analysis or an academic exercise. It is not a detailed prescription of what must be the correct way to celebrate the liturgy. Instead it is a simple contribution from my own background and experience–offered with the hope that it might inspire and assist pastors and seminarians and enlighten and enrich laypeople who love the liturgy and are concerned for reverence and re-enchantment of our lives of worship.
To whet people’s appetite I’m publishing here today the introduction to the book.
I hope you enjoy it!
