I really like Fr. Thanks again for the recommendation Lynda. May 31, Update: A friend just recommended this set of podcasts by Fr. John Riccardo as very helpful in understanding this book. Thanks Lynda! I took it with me to Adoration quite a bit. Although purportedly written for the average layperson, I found it challenging in several places.
It did, however, motivate and strengthen my devotion to, and appreciation of, the Divine Liturgy tremendously! The first part dealt with the Essence of Liturgy and so far as I was able to gather dealt with basic questions such as: What is liturgy? What happens during the liturgy? The author, PBXVI, puts these questions to the reader first to allow us to consider them from our own perspective, then proceeds to answer them philosophically and theologically.
In the next chapter, the Holy Father tells us, modern theology teaches religion may have one of two focal points: 1. Cosmic: an appreciation of the orderly, harmonious universe, the complex self-inclusive system in which we dwell; OR, 2.
The second, represents the essential TIME. The idea of worship exists within both systems of belief. Worship is the act of giving and receiving on the part of God and man. It has always been more than just an opportunity for human interchange and congregation. These leads to these important terms: 1. But this means that the historical makes its appearance in the cosmic. The cosmos is not a closed building, a stationary container in which history may by chance take place.
It is itself movement, from its one beginning to its one end. In a sense, creation is history. These two world views cannot be separated, despite the teachings of modern theology. I believe he is saying that while these two perspectives may be valid, may indeed exist, they should not persist nor be cherished above the one circle of being.
