Item description for A Challenging Reform: Realizing the Vision of the Liturgical Renewal, 1963-1975 by Piero Marini, Mark R. Francis & John R. Page...

Overview
In these pages Archbishop Piero Marini reveals the vision, courage, and faith of the pastors and scholars who struggled to implement the Second Vatican Council's teachings on the liturgy. While in some circles it is fashionable to propose "a reform of the liturgical reform," any such revision needs to take into account the history of the consilium-the organism established by the Holy See to carry out the initial liturgical changes. This story of the work of the consilium offers a fascinating glimpse into the struggles and tensions that accompanied the realization of the council's dream to promote the "full, conscious and active participation" of the faithful in Roman Catholic worship.

Reviews - What do customers think about A Challenging Reform: Realizing the Vision of the Liturgical Renewal, 1963-1975?

A Revolt that Changed an Unchanging Church  Mar 15, 2008
The first thing one notices is the word "reform." Since Christ is the Author of His Church, I found it interesting that men could think they have the power to change it, and change it they did. Not for the glory of God, but for the glory of man. This is a man-made church, and the book did a good job of explaining that and how it was done and by whom.
 
Post Vatican II Liturgical History  Feb 26, 2008
This behind-the-scenes apercuA Challenging Reform: Realizing the Vision of the Liturgical Renewal, 1963-1975 of the implementation process of Vatican II's monumental Sacrosanctum Concilium is hardly a page-turner, but it does add to the corpus of council participants' eyewitness accounts of the battles taking place within the inner sanctum of Roman Catholicism between the traditionalists and the modernists. The summative "reflection" from pages 151-157 are its greatest strength and a fitting reward for those of us who persevere to the end. The book's importance is even greater at this moment of its appearance on the scene as the unfortunate "restoration" of the 1962 Missale Romanum is being perceived by some of the fideles as confirmation that the Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy was an unfortunate "phase" of liturgical development.
 
Not what you would expect.  Feb 22, 2008
This book is rich in historical narrative, but it is lacking in theological or pastoral discussions. I bought it expecting to find arguments pro and con about the liturgical renewal in the Church, specially at a time when there is an unexpected approval of the celebration of the Latin Mass and when there is so much ignorance about the theological and liturgical background that motivated the liturgical movement during the first half of the Twentieth Century. But in terms of the history of the decisions and the concrete direction taken in implementing the ligurgical reform, it does provide information, specially on the personal level.
 
A behind the scenes view of the destruction of the Roman Catholic Mass  Feb 19, 2008
A good look at the step by step destruction of the Catholic liturgy during Vatican II. If your a baby boomer that thinks that Vatican II was the beginning of the Church and everything before it should be thrown away this is the book for you. If on the other hand you are a younger Catholic who loves the beauty of Catholic worship which has disintagrated since the council this book makes for some irritating reading. Marini (who was unceremoniously replaced by Pope Benedict) gives a behind the scenes look at the destroyers (he calls them reformers) of the Catholic Mass. He goes in depth at the process of the creation of the new Mass which brought us Priests facing the people and not the alter, kumbayah style church music,presto Eucharistic prayers,horrible architecture and heterodoxy spewing from the pulpits. Marini does a good job going into details of that horrible era. For this this book gets one star. When things have settled down and the Mass has returned to the beauty of days passed this will be a good document for future Catholic prelates of what not to do to the liturgy. Thank God Pope Benedict has put a stop to many of these shenanigans. I would recommend reading "The Spirit of the Liturgy" by Cardinal Ratzinger after you have read this.
 
An Insider's View  Jan 13, 2008
Archbishop Marini has given the world a wonderful resource in this book. He takes the reader behind the scenes--back to Vatican Council II and its original vision, and into the committee meetings that eventually resulted in the reformed liturgy. After forty years even those of us who lived through the Council and the era of reform that followed have forgotten the details and sequence of the reform. Too often those who were born after the reform think that the reforms happened with the turn of a switch. Archbishop Marini was privy to all of that history from the inside and in this book he takes the reader back into the meeting rooms where the drama unfolded. For anyone interested in liturgical history this is essential reading, but for any person interested in how the Roman Catholic Church functions this will provide valuable insight.
