Reading Excerpts

The Nature of the Liturgical Movement

The liturgical movement did devote a significant amount of energy toward advocating for improved aesthetic experiences of the liturgy, but the vision of the liturgical movement never ended in its media, be it worship aids, missals, microphones, or vernacular translations. The liturgical movement was a social movement, seeking to bring the faithful to a deeper realization of their role in the great Mystical Body of Christ, both within the act of worship and as faithful members of the baptismal priesthood in the world.
