Dear Fellow Parishioners,
The article, “The Mass of Vatican II,” examines the actual documents of the Second Vatican Council that speak to the intent and expectations of the Council members regarding the Liturgy, most especially the celebration of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. The Pastoral Council wishes to share this article with you in the hopes that we can all become better informed Catholics about the Mass and the thinking of the Council participants when they issued the Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy, one of the first documents to come out of Vatican II in 1963 and considered “one of the most important documents of the Council” and ” the one that has been the least understood.”
We will be distributing the article in three parts over the next several Sundays; however, you may view the entire article by clicking on the picture link below.
May our increased understanding of the workings of the Church help our faith to grow ever stronger and help us to grow in love and unity as a Catholic community!
