A02-Studying “In the Midst of Our Storms” – Chapter One.one
Welcome to a series of video presentations about my book, “In the Midst of Our Storms: Opening Ourselves to Christ in the Liturgy.”
Chapter One is by far the most dense of all the chapters in my book. I offer a picture of the length and breadth and depth of the paschal mystery in “The Contours of the Paschal Mystery.” Rather than what is the paschal mystery, I try to answer, Who is the paschal mystery?
Robert Taft, S.J. set forth sixteen principles about liturgy in “What Does Liturgy Do?,” a chapter in Beyond East and West. I quote several in order to give an overview of the chapter, to point out where the chapter itself is heading. And, just to say, these have influenced me profoundly in coming to terms with the personal aspect of Eucharistic praying. I hope they are of some help to you.
There you have it! Welcome to study hall! –roc,sj
