The Heresy of Formlessness: The Roman Liturgy and Its Enemy

£50.00

Product description

Sure to be the subject of much discussion, this new book takes a look at the post Vatican II approach to liturgy through the eyes of a man who says the Church has lost much and gained nothing through the promulgation of the Novus Ordo Mass. An accomplished novelist and writer, German author Martin Mosebach gives a plea for a return to the preconciliar Latin Rite, giving a persuasive and compelling argument against what he sees as a jarring break in tradition. Yet there is another way to approach the Liturgy.
In his foreword, Fr. Joseph Fessio, S.J., points out the difference between Mosebach's approach and those who, like myself, the Adoremus Society, and I think I can assert this with confidence Pope Benedict XVI, advocate a rereading and restructuring of the liturgical renewal intended by the Second Vatican Council, but in light of the Church s two-thousand-year tradition.
