Celebrating the Easter Vigil

Rupert Berger and Hans Hollerweger, Editors; Matthew J. O'Connell, Translator

The revised Roman Calendar emphasizes the unity of the Easter Triduum (Holy Thursday evening to Easter Sunday evening) and considers the Easter Vigil to be the center of the three-day commemoration. But more yet can be done on a pastoral and liturgical level to make the Easter Vigil take root in the life of the people and in the traditions and new customs of the Church. The contributors to this work articulate the extraordinary possibilities latent in the Vigil for celebrating communal life and deepening spiritual understanding. They also provide a specific plan for a more experiential celebration of this "feast of feasts."

The Place of Christ in Liturgical Prayer

Revised Edition

Josef Jungmann, SJ

This is a study of the official prayer of the leader of the liturgical assembly that, as stated in the original edition, has "not only retained its validity but has also proved fruitful in the present liturgical and religious revival." Prayer, Jungmann states, is of its nature not bound to clearly determined forms and methods. Although rooted in history, liturgical prayer has also been shaped throughout history by our changing understanding of Christ, the center of our prayer. Jungmann inquires into liturgical prayer to determine to what extent and where this historical change or shaping actually occurred. Concentrating on prayer to Christ and prayer through Christ, he examines the place of Christ in different liturgies as they appear in the course of the Church's history. The result is a historical outline of the place occupied by the idea of Christ in liturgical prayer through the ages.

Psalms for all Seasons

John F. Craghan

How can the psalms, those ancient Hebrew songs of praise, speak to today's believers? Can these prayers enhance the prayer life of such believers? By examining fifty-five psalms, the author demonstrates how these prayers can speak to different stages in the life of individuals and communities. Some speak to moments of balance and harmony. Others look to our times of disaster and disillusionment. Still others reflect on God's capacity to surprise and change our lives. They are indeed Psalms for All Seasons. A blend of biblical scholarship and pastoral theology, this work is especially well-suited for adult Bible study groups, college courses, prayer groups, those who pray the Liturgy of the Hours, or any group or individual with an interest in the psalms. The inclusive-language 1991 NAB translation is used.

Hunger For The Word

Lectionary Reflections on Food and Justice-Year B

Larry Hollar, Editor

We have all experienced hunger, whether it’s a need for spiritual guidance or physical nutrition. Our hunger for God’s Word can benefit those needing material sustenance. God’s Word calls us to nourish the physically hungry and poor, just as it nourishes our faith and sustains us in our struggle for justice. Hunger for the Word explores the Lectionary with a focus on anti-hunger advocacy, social activism, and political issues affecting marginalized people. Using insights, images, and stories from pastors, professors, and lay people who are active in anti-hunger campaigns, this ecumenical book offers devotional connections to inequality issues, as well as themes to help in our struggle to understand and eliminate injustice. Hunger for the Word: Year B, edited by Larry Hollar of Bread for the World, brings concern for hunger and fairness into our daily religious life. With weekly sermon/homily reflections, Hunger for the Word is an invaluable resource for pastors, liturgical ministers and those interested in justice-oriented Bible study and spiritual growth. Also includes suggestions for musical worship, and ideas for children’s sermons to help spread God’s Word of activism, compassion, and integrity throughout the congregation. Larry Hollar is Senior Regional Organizer with Bread for the World, the nationwide grassroots Christian anti-hunger advocacy movement. He is also an ordained Presbyterian elder, a professional Biblical storyteller, church musician, and liturgist.

Preparing Music For Celebration

Heather Reid

Praising and worshiping God with voice and instruments: This is what the liturgical musician's craft is all about. New music is published monthly and new collections and hymnals appear regularly. How can musicians keep up with this flood of new material? Will people sing it? The starting points for dealing with these challenges are knowing music's specific role in liturgical ritual, and recognizing the assembly as the singer of the community's song. In Preparing Music for Celebration, Heather Reid shows how music ministers can help the gathered assembly to participate fully in the celebration. By using the principles found in Preparing Music for Celebration, musicians and preparation teams will find clarity and unity of purpose: great starting points for your assembly's song. Discussion questions and a summary conclude each chapter. Chapters include "Introduction: 'When in Our Music God Is Glorified . . .'" "The Paschal Mystery and Music in Liturgy," "Full, Conscious and Active Participation," "The Sunday Celebration as the Norm for Musical Choices," "When and What to Sing," "Criteria for Choosing Music," and "Practical Considerations."

Preparing The Liturgical Year: Volume 2

Lent-Easter and Advent-Christmas

Corbin Eddy

The paschal mystery is the heart of the liturgical year. Celebrated most intensely during the Easter Triduum, it is also the heartbeat of all the other seasons. How does each season celebrate a particular aspect of this mystery of our dying and rising in Christ? How do we keep this experience the focus of our celebrations all year long? Background to the seasons, practical applications of principles, and ideas for preparing the church makes Preparing the Liturgical Year a productive resource.

Presented in two volumes, the books' sequence and their chapters is designed to help you establish priorities. Volume 1 first examines the paschal mystery, then the two principal celebrations of the year—Sunday and the Paschal Triduum—are studied. Only in light of these two feasts can we reflect on the liturgical seasons of Lent-Easter and Advent-Christmas as found in Volume 2. Discussion questions and a summary conclude each chapter. Chapters include "The Paschal Mystery," "The Centrality of Sunday," "The Paschal Triduum," "Glory Days," "The Easter Season," "The Advent-Christmas Season," and "A Timeless Event Celebrated in Time."

Praying the Rosary

With Scripture in Four Languages: English, Spanish, Vietnamese, and Tagalog

Zachary Wilberding, OSB

The rosary is a way of prayer in which we join with Mary, the mother of Jesus, in praying to God as we meditate on the life of Jesus.

This reflection enriches our encounter with Jesus in word and sacrament. Praying the Rosary with Scripture in Four Languages guides us through praying the rosary step by step. A Scripture reference and short quotation is given for each mystery, enhancing our prayer with reflection on the Word of God. Praying the Rosary with Scripture in Four Languages includes an introduction and how-to guide to the rosary as well as the Prayers of the Rosary, How To Pray the Rosary, and The Mysteries of the Rosary in English, Spanish, Vietnamese, and Tagalog.

He is a field education director for Saint John’s University•School of Theology and is in the Master of Divinity program at the Aquinas Institute, St. Louis, Missouri.
