Studying action in the Liturgy
By Donz Peter DAMIEN THE WHOLE MAN AT WORSHIP, by II. Lublenska de Lenva1, tr. by Rachel Attwater, ((eoffrey Chapman, 110s, 6d.).
THE liturgy is not merely a matter of vocal prayer said in common, it is also the prayer of action. In this short book the author concentrates on action in the liturgy, showing its derivation from biblical and other sources.
It is a fascinating study with some surprises. Why, for instance, do we
Join o hands to pray? The Jews did not pray that way, neither did the early Church. Mme. Lubienske thinks the custom may have come from India, but just how nobody knows.
ON THE THIRD DAY, by Georges Chevrot, (Scepter Publishers, Ltd., 16s.).
THERE has been considerable re-appraisal of the significance of Our Lord's Resurrection in recent years. Mgr. Chevrot now places some of the fruits of Ibis new theology at the disposal of the ordinary reader in a well-written little hook, here anonymously well translated. He has made his book in the form of a free commentary on the New Testament accounts of the Resurrection and on the liturgy for Patichaltide.
