Liturgical Conference and Call for Papers

[Thanks to Stratford Caldecott for pointing this out. Please note the call for papers at the bottom paragraph.]

CONFERENCE: The Liturgical Legacy of Pope John Paul II

Commemorating the first anniversary of the death of Pope John Paul II, The Liturgical Institute of the University of Saint Mary of the Lake/Mundelein Seminary in Mundelein, Illinois, announces a conference examining the liturgical legacy of Pope John Paul II.

As the Bishops’ Committee on the Liturgy Newsletter has commented, “Pope John Paul’s efforts were aimed at enabling all to appreciate the deepest spiritual dimensions of the Sacred Liturgy,” (v. 61, March-April 2005). Many liturgical books were renewed and other writings clarified the teaching of the Second Vatican Council in the area of liturgy. Subject matter for proposals may include, but is not limited to, the Missale Romanum (2002), the Ordo Lectionum Missae (1981), Order for Crowning the Blessed Virgin Mary (1987), Rites of Anointing and Pastoral Care of the Sick (1983), De Benedictionibus (1984), Directory for Sunday Celebrations in the Absence of Priest (1988), Ordo Celebrandi Matrimonium, edition altera (1990), as well Liturgiam authenticam (2001), Varietates Legitimae (1994), Vicesimus quintus annus (1989), Spiritus et Sponsa (2003), reflections on the Eucharist, ad limina addresses, and motu proprios.

The Liturgical Institute seeks to bring together established scholars and new voices representing the "John Paul II Generation," theologians who have been formed by John Paul's theological contributions to the Church in the area of sacred liturgy.
