Product Description

•••••
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 instead accessible, practical ways to bring beauty and reverence back into Catholic worship.

Paperback. 178 pages.

AUTHOR:

Fr. Dwight Longenecker is author of over twenty books, a blogger, podcaster, and popular speaker nationwide, and serves as pastor of Our Lady of the Rosary Church in Greenville, South Carolina.

“I highly recommend Letters on Liturgy. Fr. Longenecker charitably corrects modern errors, excesses, and distortions, while offering also practical advice on how to restore greater reverence and recover lost traditions.”

— REV. MSGR CHARLES POPE, Pastor of Holy Comforter St. Cyprian Catholic Church

“Father Longenecker persuasively shows us that to re-enchant the liturgy is to re-enchant the world, and thereby make our ancient Faith new.”

— MAGGIE GALLAGHER, Benedict XVI Institute

Letters on Liturgy reminds us that beautiful liturgy brings us ever closer to ultimate realities, at the heart of which is the Logos Himself.”

— SAMUEL GREGG, Acton Institute

“As one who loves the Extraordinary Form of the Mass, I welcome the insights of pastors, such as Fr. Longenecker, who celebrate the Ordinary Form with reverence, and with canonical, theological, and aesthetic sensibility.”

— JOSEPH PEARCE, editor of the St. Austin Review
