This comprehensive resource for all liturgical ministers covers the liturgical seasons, the Order of the Mas, popular devotions, and more. It also offers helpful information and practical suggestions to enhance parish liturgies. It is divided into five parts. The Paschal Mystery in the Liturgical Seasons covers historical background, suggestions for celebrations (e.g., environment and music), special season considerations (e.g., Advent wreaths and scrutinies), and the major themes of the Sunday readings. The Paschal Mystery in Ordinary Time treats Sunday as a special liturgical day and gives homily suggestions for the Sunday readings for all three cycles. The Paschal Mystery and the Order of the Mass gives suggestions for proclaiming the Eucharistic Prayer, gathering rites, readings, and prayers of the faithful; and it outlines music priorities in liturgy. The Paschal Mystery in Bereavement covers funerals and cremations. The Paschal Mystery and Popular Devotions treats the station of the cross, the rosary, and more.
