Editorial Reviews


I warmly recommend this book. It is a worthy work that can enhance the singing of the exsultet and increase our appreciation for its richness. It also offers an inspiring example of how the visual arts and the musical arts can reinforce one another during times of high festivity. Charles Rohrbacher is to be commended not only for giving us his own fine work, but also for giving us an example that others might emulate.
Rita Ferrone, Art and Architecture

This is a marvelous publication. Charles Rohrbacher, an iconographer from the diocese of Juneau, is the artist. Having the Exsultet in it’s own liturgical book is a brilliant idea. I plan to enshrine the copy, I ordered for the parish, near the Paschal candle during the season of Easter.
Michael R. Prendergast, Liturgical Consultant, Sacred Liturgy Ministries

The artwork in this book is truly lovely & enhances well the revised text of the Exsultet (magnificently rendered by the late Dame Maria Boulding of Stanbrook Abbey). This volume would make a fine Easter display in a church gathering space or by the font. For liturgical use, however, the book falls short. Of course I'm. Not certain that was its intended use. If for nothing else it can help celebrants, deacons & cantors to pray the text as preparation for the Easter Vigil, with the help of the beautiful art. Of course Amazon's price is competative as usual. And we thank the bees for their work too!

This is my first year as a Permanent Deacon and I am extremely honored to have this book as a memorial of the first time I will proclaim the entire Exsultet. It is a book well worthy of the great text it contains and worthy of taking a respected place among the many liturgical texts.

This book is truly a blessing, and to those of us who are numbered to proclaim the great Easter Proclamation, it is an immeasurable gift. After the proclamation we will have the book placed on display throughout the forty days of Easter to remind us of the light that comes into the darkness.

Every Deacon should receive this book as part of their ordination. It would be a treasured gift as it fosters contemplation and devotion on the words that will dispel the darkness through the pillar of fire.
