In this brief, accessible guidebook, Father Paul Turner, a well-known and trusted sacramental theologian, offers priests and parish ministers a straightforward commentary on the General Instruction of the Roman Missal. Working from the Latin text, Turner highlights three important principles: the sacrifice of Christ, the holiness of the Eucharist, and the participation of the ministers. This helpful resource is a must for anyone who prepares the liturgy for a parish assembly.From the Introduction:The guidebook for celebrating Eucharist is the Institutio generalis missalis romani. The complete document addresses a range of details from covering the altar to identifying the auxiliary Bishop. Yet it never loses its overarching vision. It guides our participation in the greatest mystery in the history of the world.The Institutio generalis relies on many valuable principles, but three of them frame its purpose especially well: the sacrifice of Christ, the holiness of the Eucharist, and the participation of the ministers.
