News from CIEL France in Rome

CIEL France just finished up their own colloquium in Rome (which was predominantly in the French language so far as I can see) and have sent out a few pictures:

A French-language report was given here on Vatican Radio with Msgr. Ranjith. (I shall see if we can't get a translation of this interview.)

A brief summary of the results of the French language CIEL colloquium are as follows:

During three days, the 150 participants, bishops, priests and laity followed conferences and celebrations on the topic of the liturgical revival. In the rooms of the Colombus hotel, the speakers, French, German, English, Canadian or New Zealanders could discuss the conclusions of their studies on the Roman liturgy, its history and its developments. The intervention of His Excellency Msgr. Ranjith, Secretary of the Congregation for the Divine Worship in particular stressed the importance of the study of the complex relationship between liturgy and modernity within the framework of the New Evangelization.
