A01-New Series: Studying “In the Midst of Our Storms” – The Introduction

Welcome to a series of video presentations about my book, “In the Midst of Our Storms: Opening Ourselves to Christ in the Liturgy.” 


The Introduction lays out my vision of what I want to share about liturgical participation.  “Liturgy is theology in the form of prayer.” Not only does liturgy make credal statements, it also establishes a theological world, a web of relationships, into which we enter at liturgy.  I explore this theological world so as to foster deeper relationships with worshipers who have lived long enough to know loss, disappointment, and disillusionment.

In the video, I lay out a few questions that point us in that direction and then conclude with a final question: Are we worshipers really present to the Real Presence?  This question summarizes nicely  my project, to cultivate deeper presence in worshipers so we might encounter the Risen Christ more profoundly.

There you have it!  Welcome to study hall! –roc,sj
