By Jean Danielou

Figures resembling Scott Hahn have led the way in which for Catholics - and non-Catholics - to appreciate the deep Scriptural foundation for a number of the liturgies in the Church, specially the Mass. Fr. Jean Danielou was once the forerunner of this revival, and this e-book, "The Bible and the Liturgy" is likely one of the foundational stones of this edifice.
Fr. Danielou, who used to be made a Cardinal through Pope Paul VI in 1969, used to be a huge determine within the "resourcement" move within the Catholic Church resulting in Vatican II. This move wanted to "return to the resources" for realizing all features of Catholic theology together with the liturgy; the assets they wanted to come back to have been basically the writings of Scripture and the Church Fathers. This booklet, initially written in 1956, is a most suitable fruit of this stream, as Fr. Danielou explores the biblical roots of the liturgy as understood via the Church Fathers. The e-book essentially specializes in the 3 sacraments of initiation: baptism, affirmation, and the Eucharist, and follows the advance of the rites of those 3 sacraments, from their biblical roots to their perform within the first 5 centuries of Christianity. yet the place this booklet rather shines is in its research of the Sabbath and its successor, the Lord's Day. Fr. Danielou explores some of the photographs the Fathers used to give an explanation for the move of the day of worship from Saturday to Sunday, the "Eighth Day." this is often theology that's usually forgotten this day, however it has a truly sensible software in supporting Christians this day to put aside an afternoon for the worship of the Lord.
This is a e-book that may be learn many times to a lot revenue. The collage of Notre Dame Press is to be recommended for republishing this vintage of liturgical theology.
