"[A]n outstanding resource for the ongoing discussion on the post-conciliar liturgical reform... Matthew Hazell is to be congratulated for creating a comparative tool to facilitate such a debate" -- Fr Uwe Michael Lang, C.O., in Antiphon: A Journal for Liturgical Renewal
The Index Lectionum is a tool that makes the comparison of the lectionaries of the Ordinary and Extraordinary Forms easier than it has been up until now. All the readings at Mass in both forms of the Roman Rite have been arranged side-by-side in biblical order, with their use in each form documented. This book thus makes it possible to look up a biblical reference and quickly find out if it is used on the same day or celebration in the OF and EF, or where a reading in the EF has been transferred to in the OF, and so on.
For all those who love the Church's liturgy, the Index Lectionum is a vital comparative tool for further study of and research into the lectionaries of the Ordinary and Extraordinary Forms: their relationship to one another, their similarities and differences, and their respective pastoral advantages and disadvantages.
