BENEDICT XVI`S REFORMThe Liturgy between Innovation and Tradition
By: Nicola Bux
When Pope Benedict 16th authorized the celebration of the Mass according to the missal of 1962, better known as the Latin Tridentine Mass, many voices in the Catholic Church rose up; some in protest, some in praise. Author Nicola Bux, using the Pope`s own theological writings, unpacks the reasons for this decision and how in the mind of the Pope this is a step forward for the Catholic Church, not backward as some have claimed.
Filled with references to Pope Benedict`s writings, as well as scripture, the saints and tradition, this book is a must-read for those wishing to understand the mind of the Pope on liturgical progress and reform.
