Item description for The Eastern Catholic Churches: An Introduction to Their Worship and Spirituality (American Essays in Liturgy Series) by Joan L. Roccasalvo...

Overview
With rising interest in Eastern churches, this volume is a timely and helpful exploration of the Eastern Catholic Church and its celebration of the eucharist. It is written in the hope that interested laity, theological students, and ministers may come to understand and respect Eastern Catholicism for its many contributions to the universal Catholic Church. Efforts to integrate its rich legacy into their own experience will be rewarded in ways unimagined.

Publishers Description

In recent years a new interest in the Eastern Churches has emerged in the Western Churches both Catholic and Protestant. The reader of this work will find answers to such fundamental questions as Who are Eastern Catholics?" "How did the Eastern Catholic Churches originate?" "Who are Orthodox Christians?" "How do Orthodox Christians differ from Eastern Catholics?" "Why do so many diverse Eastern Churches exist?"

While it cannot answer all these questions thoroughly, this concise booklet can help interested laity, theological students, and ministers come to understand and respect Eastern Catholicism for its many contributions to the universal Catholic Church.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Eastern Catholic Churches: An Introduction to Their Worship and Spirituality (American Essays in Liturgy Series)?

A Spendid Introduction to the Byzantine Catholic Church  May 20, 2008
In her book,Sr.Joan Roccasalvo paints a detailed yet concise portrait of the theology and the history of the Byzantine Catholic Church. Sr. Joan is no stranger to the Byzantine Rite, having served as part of the Pope John XXXIII Center at the University of Scranton for several years, and she has shown this knowledge and expertise in this book. She paints a church that many, if not most Catholics, view with a combination of bewilderment and misunderstanding, and she makes it alive; its traditions and mystery which calls out to the reader to explore and to understand what that which what Pope John Paul II,the Great called "the other lung" of the Church.If there is one book that I recommend to the adverage reader who wishes to further understand the treasure and beauty of the entire Catholic Church, both Eastren and Western, it is this book.
 
Worth its price!  Jun 14, 2003
This little book is definately worth its little price! Broken up into five info-packed chapters (Diversity in the Universal Catholic Church, The Eastern Catholic Churches, Liturgical Life of the Eastern Catholic Churches, Beauty and the Arts in Eastern Christian Worship, Future Directions, Appendix) for Catholics that are not familiar with their Eastern Rite brothers and sisters. (My only complaint is that the author seems a bit focused on the Byzantine Catholic Church, and tends to neglect the other Eastern Rites consistently....) This book would make a wonderful gift for yourself, or anyone studying the universality of the Catholic Church! Especially recommended for individuals participating in R.C.I.A., Confirmation, or anyone with a leadership role within a particular parish. A definate must for any parish library!
