“The problem of the new Missal resides in its departure from the continuous history which was going on before and after Pius V, and that it creates definitely a new book (although with old material). Its appearance is accompanied by a type of prohibition of what was traditional, being such a type of prohibition alien to the ecclesiastical history of law and of liturgy. From my personal knowledge of the conciliar debates and from the repeated reading of the speeches of the Fathers of the Council, I can say with certainty, that this was not intended by them.”
— Cardinal Ratzinger, Letter to Wolfgang Waldstein (14 December 1976)

Sacra Liturgia USA 2015 — New York City
published 31 May 2015 by Fr. David Friel

omorrow begins Sacra Liturgia USA 2015, an international conference on liturgical formation in light of the New Evangelization. I will be present at the event and will try to offer a few real-time reports on the experience here on Views from the Choir Loft.

Last month, I posted an brief mention of some of the speakers we will hear this week. I also encourage you to check out the full schedule, posted HERE.

On the conference website, you will find a detailed introduction to each of the speakers. The schedule further includes the titles of the talks to be given.

With gratitude to the organizers of this conference, I pray that its proceedings will be a blessing to the Church in America and beyond.
