Liturgical Press Suggests
The Deacon's Ministry of the Liturgy offers a concise and accessible introduction to the liturgical aspects of the ministry of the diaconate. The book covers not only the practical side of liturgical ministry—what the deacon does in various liturgical celebrations—but also roots of that ministry in Scripture and tradition, as well as reflecting on the role of the liturgy in the spiritual life of the deacon.
Frederick Bauerschmidt is professor of theology at Loyola University Maryland and a permanent deacon of the Archdiocese of Baltimore, assigned to Corpus Christi parish. He is the author of several books, including Thomas Aquinas: Faith, Reason, and Following Christ and Why The Mystics Matter Now.
Deacon Frederick Bauerschmidt deals in very practical terms with the multifaceted aspects of the deacon's liturgical ministry, but also with the spirituality of his service. There is a superb balance struck between attending to the `situational awareness' of the liturgy and the deacon's prayerful participation. Quite simply, The Deacon's Ministry of the Liturgy is splendid and I cannot recommend it highly enough.
