The timeless beauty of the Catholic liturgy should provide stability and depth in the superficial, fast-changing modern world, but too often it sacrifices part of its soul to the Spirit of the Age. In Letters on Liturgy, Fr. Dwight Longenecker writes to a fictional seminarian about the meaning and purpose of the liturgy in the modern world. His witty, wise, and down-to-earth letters blend a love of literature, drama, and art with decades of experience as a pastor. They leave technical jargon, arcane arguments, and unrealistic ideals behind, offering in their stead accessible, practical ways to bring beauty and reverence back into Catholic worship.
“Here we find good advice, good taste, joyful patience, and realistic hope. A powerful little book on a most important subject.”—DOM XAVIER PERRIN, OSB, Abbot of Quarr Abbey
