Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“The comprehensive content and inviting layout of Living LiturgyTM make it a premier liturgical resource.”

            Writing Works

Living LiturgyTM is a magnificent resource that helps liturgy come alive and present in the parish. The set-up creates a user-friendly guide to understanding the message of each Sunday through the lens of the paschal mystery, which deepens the faith of all the ministers. This has been a great foundation and teaching tool for training our ministers. I have seen a big improvement in our liturgies since we began using Living LiturgyTM.”
