Keeping in mind two pastoral considerations - the liturgy itself and the assembly that worships - Father Kavanagh looks not beyond rubrics but deep into their historical and pastoral existence in order to develop rules of style which articulate this existence in current Roman liturgical usage. From this research has come a pastoral manual for clergy who preside at liturgical celebrations.

The basic jurisdictional division of the faithful in the Church is derived from a distinction of persons and laws that is today personal rather than territorial. Antecedent to any other ecclesiastical determination, even that of domicile or cognational relationship, and underlying the multiple and diverse classifications inherent in the canonical legal system, is the fundamental ascription of the individual to one or other of the various particular rites. Ritual membership, signals and confirmed by Baptism establishes the faithful in an autonomous community which exists even within the unity of Catholic belief and practice as a living, historical embodiment of a distinct and precious religious experience. This community or ritual family is itself a rich treasure of the spirit, engendering a whole body of ecclesiastical institutions, as well as giving rise to a multiplicity of distinctive liturgical, cultural, social and disciplinary relationships in which it is expressed and through which it live on in the concrete reality of the Christian life in the world. The rites are part of the tradition of the Church. They were formed in and are dependent upon a whole geographical and historical environment which finds in them the expression of an authentic human culture.

A unique situation exists in the Nordic countries where there is a Lutheran majority living in ecumenical cooperation with other churches and ecclesiastical communities. This book attempts to shed light on what the churches have discovered they hold in common and on areas where they recognise that there are divergencies between them, both in relation to ordination and ministry, and in particular to the theology and terminology of ordination. The book brings together the research and insights of 23 researchers from all the Nordic countries studying more than 200 different kinds of 'ordination' rites from the Orthodox and Roman Catholic as well as Lutheran and non-Lutheran protestant traditions. After an introduction to the churches in the Nordic countries, the book presents 19 case studies from the Nordic countries. The last part includes some general ecumenical and liturgical perspectives on ordination and rites presented by international researchers.

"Schmit tells us how to let our mission form our worship and how our worship can empower our mission. A wonderful book that will be gratefully received by the church." Will Willimon, Bishop, North Alabama Conference of the United Methodist Church Historic changes are occurring in this generation in the convergence of worship styles throughout the Christian church. With the onset of postmodernity and its requisite values of embodiment, mystery, and wonder, worship has become a major window for displaying these values in more inclusive and holistic ways. As modern worship walls break down, Christians across the theological spectrum are seeking to learn from their own tradition's roots and from the liturgical expressions of believers in other times and places. Sent and Gatheredexamines worship in church settings around the globe, describing the growing liturgical convergence and providing practical principles for shaping liturgies that are missionally focused, creative, theologically congruent, and appropriate to local contexts. The book broadens current ecumenical worship conversations, reveals insights drawn from the church at worship in the world, and argues for a common understanding of a theology of worship. It will appeal to students of worship and practical theology, pastors, and worship leaders. About the series:The Engaging Worship series from Fuller Theological Seminary's Brehm Center for Worship, Theology, and the Arts brings scholars, students, artists, and church leaders into conversation around vital issues of theology and worship.

How does the entrance song of the Mass function within the Roman Rite? What can it express theologically? What should Roman Catholics sing at the beginning of Mass? In this groundbreaking study, Jason McFarland answers these and other important questions by exploring the history and theology of the entrance song of Mass. After a careful history of the entrance song, he investigates its place in church documents. He proposes several models of the entrance song for liturgical celebration today. Finally, he offers a skillful theological analysis of the entrance song genre, focusing on the song for the Holy Thursday Evening Mass-arguably the most important entrance song of the entire liturgical year. Announcing the Feast provides the most comprehensive treatment of the Roman Rite entrance song to date. It is unique in that it bridges the disciplines of liturgical studies, musicology, and theological method.
