HASH(0x941f3fd8) étoiles sur 5 Congar's understanding of liturgy 23 décembre 2012
Par Wordsword - Publié sur
Format: Broché
This is a translation (from French) of some of Yves Congar's essay's about liturgy. Congar was a historian and ecclesiologist who wanted to include the non-ordained as important participants in liturgy. So, he is able to clearly set out the history of the development of the liturgy of the Roman Catholic mass and the meaning of Church. Congar brings in and discusses information from Pope Pius XII and Father Karl Rahner as he explains their thoughts as well as his own opinions. For somebody wanting to understand the role of the assembled congregation at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, this is a good text for clarification.

"At the Heart of Christian Worship" is a short book, but reading, for me, was slow as I tried to understand the concepts and integrate them into my current knowledge. The editor/translator included a set of questions for reflection and group discussion at the end of each essay which helped me to recall and synthesize information in the particular essay.

I would recommend this book to anybody trying to understand the meaning of the Roman Catholic Mass as it developed out of Vatican II from the point of view of the theologian who made the most speeches at the Second Vatican Council. (23 December 2012)


Having re-read this text containing articles by Cardinal Congar at different points in his life, I can say that I get more out of it each time I read it. Congar had a very deep understanding of the liturgy along with the unified role of the baptized laity in the pews and the ordained clergy on the altar sacrificing and eating the Body of Christ together. Though it is not an easy first read, "At the Heart of Christian Worship" is a profoundly meaningful text to help any Catholic or somebody who might be thinking of becoming Catholic to understand the deep and profound menaing of the Mass as well as our role in it.

HASH(0x93d3b354) étoiles sur 5 Liturgy and Ecclesiology 14 décembre 2010
Par Alcuin Reid - Publié sur
Format: Broché
It is all to the good that seminal writings from the twentieth century theological ressourcement and liturgical movement are being translated and published in English. Congar is more theologian than liturgist, but that by no means detracts from his five succinct essays that touch on the liturgy here.

"Touch on the liturgy" is perhaps the wrong expression. Rather, they locate the sacred liturgy in its ecclesial context, affording a theology of the liturgy that is ecclesial, or a liturgical ecclesiology if you will. The dynamic between the two is often forgotten, in both current debate and in the study of the two, not unrelated, movements of the twentieth century. Congar's contribution to our understanding of this remains important: as the book rightly points out, Vatican II theology didn't just drop down from the skies.

There is rather a lot of editorial material here, especially for the price. The introduction situates the essays and Congar well. A conclusion seeks "to point out some of the pastoral implications of the ground Congar has covered." A somewhat laboured "Agenda for Personal and Group Reflection" is added to the end of each essay. My preference would have been to allow the essays stand alone, simply with an historical introduction. In any case one can wade through all of this to Congar himself.

When one gets to him, Congar's writing is challenging, theologically and liturgically. There are those who will find in what he writes a straightforward theological justification of the sweeping liturgical reforms of the second half of the twentieth century, yet, as with many of the pre-conciliar liturgists and theologians, matters are not that simple. His essays are certainly agitating for reform, for what he calls "liturgical `realism'", which is "the internalisation of worship by the faithful, the development in their hearts of the fruitfulness of their prayer and their love." There is no problem at all here! And indeed, he insists that he does not "underestimate the immense value and priceless heritage" of the "treasure" of the Church's liturgical rites (he was writing in 1948).

But we know that within three decades of this essay's appearance that priceless heritage had been radically worked over, and that its technicians were motivated by a new theological outlook. Congar was directly neither an architect nor a technician of these reforms, but his theology played its part in shaping their perceptions.

In the task of calmly and clearly looking again at all that happened at that time, and of sifting the theological and liturgical wheat of that period from the chaff, it is indeed good to have these brief essays to hand, for there may well be more wheat than chaff here.
