Book Description

Participation in the Mass is the one experience that all active Catholics share. The articles collected in Celebrating Good Liturgy, derived from a popular series in America magazine, show how the church’s central act of worship can be a richer experience for everyone.
The essays, written by the most accomplished liturgists in the country, examine the “roles” of all the people involved in the Mass—the congregation, presider, deacons, lectors, musicians, eucharistic ministers, and ministers of hospitality. They examine each role and off er a wealth of practical advice to deepen Catholics’ appreciation of the Mass.
Celebrating Good Liturgy will prove helpful to everyone involved in the Mass—from those who plan the liturgy to those Catholics who regularly participate in the church’s great sacrament

Format: Paperback
In this book, qualified leaders address the problems of the assembly, the Liturgy of the Word, the Liturgy of the Eucharist, the ministries of the deacon, lector, parish liturgy committee, music, communion, and hospitality. The final essay by Nathan D. Mitchell brings the entire liturgical experience together with "Celebrating 'Good Liturgy.'" Suggestions for solutions and improvements are offered in each area. This material was originally published in America magazine's "Good Liturgy" series. Fr. Martin has assembled a book of great value for all parishes interested in making the most of their eucharistic celebrations.

Format: Paperback
Do you go to Church? Are you a Lay minister, a priest, a deacon? Did you ever want to know what everybody's role is at the Eucharist? Well, then, READ THIS BOOK!

James Martin, SJ, does a spectacular job - as usual - at collecting several essays on a variety of ministries and responsibilities that relate to a parish community's celebration of the Mass. Like his "Awake My Soul: Contemporary Catholics on Traditional Devotions," Martin's bringing together of this wisdom is to be commended.

If you have not read this book yet, order it and do it now - you won't be disappointed!

This book has some great insights into the liturgy. It gives you some thing to check your style and how you do liturgy. Presiders should read this book so that they can check themselves to see where they stand. I found myself taking a good look at my style after reading this book. It was sure a good wake up for me to see how I was interacting with my congregation.
