Certainly, the Second Vatican Council wished to promote greater active participation [and] fine initiatives were taken along these lines. However we cannot close our eyes to the disaster, the devastation and the schism that the modern promoters of a living liturgy caused by remodeling the Church’s liturgy according to their ideas. They forgot that the liturgical act is not just a PRAYER, but also and above all a MYSTERY in which something is accomplished for us that we cannot fully understand but that we must accept and receive in faith, love, obedience and adoring silence.
— Pope Francis' Chief Liturgist (31 March 2017)
OVERVIEW • Jogues Illuminated Missal
published 23 April 2014 by Corpus Christi Watershed

298 Jogues EMBERS of Corpus Christi Watershed were honored to assist the JP2 Institute in creating a book fulfilling “the true liturgical vision of the Vatican II fathers.” The official title is SAINT ISAAC JOGUES ILLUMINATED MISSAL, LECTIONARY, & GRADUAL, but it’s usually referred to as “The Jogues Missal.”

This book is intended for the pews wherever Ordinary Form Masses are offered. By clicking on the “SUPPORTING MATERIALS” button (see above), you can view sample pages, read reviews, and learn about the various elements that make this book’s 832 pages so unique. Once you’re there, one item not to be missed is the “Home Video” demonstrating how to open the book the first time.
