Participation in the Mass is the one experience that all active Catholics share. The articles collected in Celebrating Good Liturgy, derived from a popular series in America magazine, show how the church’s central act of worship can be a richer experience for everyone. The essays, written by the most accomplished liturgists in the country, examine the “roles” of all the people involved in the Mass—the congregation, presider, deacons, lectors, musicians, eucharistic ministers, and ministers of hospitality.
They examine each role and offer a wealth of practical advice to deepen Catholics’ appreciation of the Mass. Celebrating Good Liturgy will prove helpful to everyone involved in the Mass—from those who plan the liturgy to those Catholics who regularly participate in the church’s great sacrament. James Martin, SJ is an associate editor of America magazine, the national Catholic weekly. He is the author of In Good Company and the best-seller My Life with the Saints.
