Following the successful TLS1 course, a general introduction to Catholic Liturgy, our 2023 modular study course, taking place on Thursday evenings via Zoom, will focus on all aspects of Eucharist. Each module will comprisethree one-hour sessions, 7.30-8.30pm, offering time for discussion and comments. The course is aimed at all who wish to develop a deeper knowledge of liturgy.
“In his address to the participants at the Italian National Liturgical Week in 2017 the Holy Father called for a rediscovery of the ‘decisions taken with regard to the liturgical reform, by overcoming unfounded and superficial readings, a partial reception, and practices that disfigure it. It is not a matter of rethinking the reform by reviewing the choices in its regard, but of knowing better the underlying reasons, through historicaldocumentation, as well as of internalizing its inspirational principles and of observing the discipline that governs it.’ Again, more recently, in his Apostolic Letter Desiderio Desideravi, Pope Francis has once more highlighted the vital importance of the liturgy for the life of the Church by stressing the urgent need to return to the theological and spiritual sense of Christian celebration and how the faithful are formed both by and for the liturgy.
In England and Wales, the Society of Saint Gregory is responding to the Pope’s call through its renewed offering of the ‘Taking Liturgy Seriously’ course. I commend this course to the faithful so that they may enter more deeply into the mystery of faith and experience the Lord’s burning desire to share himself with us in the mystery of his Body and Blood as well as in the other sacraments.”
