GUARDINI SPIRIT OF THE LITURGY PDF

Last year was a year of many anniversaries. One that was perhaps less noticed was the fortieth anniversary of Ignatius Press. The choice of both author and work was most appropriate: first, because Ignatius Press introduced the then-relatively unknown author to the Anglophone world indeed, I suspect not a few of those early publications of Ratzinger sat in a warehouse until he came into his own as prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith and eventually as Pope! Reprinting the Ratzinger volume was not enough; included was the eponymous work by Romano Guardini, precisely during the centennial year of its original publication — a work consistently identified by Ratzinger as one of the most formative books for his personal spiritual life and for his academic orientation as well. Indeed, Pope Francis told him to continue the liturgical program of Pope Benedict.

It was published in as the opening volume in the Ecclsia Orans series edited by Abbot Herwegen [of the Benedictine Maria Laach Abbey], and from then until it was constantly reprinted. This slim volume may rightly be said to have inaugurated the Liturgical Movement in Germany. Its contribution was decisive. It helped us to rediscover the liturgy in all its beauty, hidden wealth, and time-transcending grandeur, to see it as the animating center of the Church, the very center of Christian life.

Could there be a more ringing endorsement of a liturgical work and an encouragement to take it up again today? Problems in , when Guardini wrote his book, were the same in kind as ours a century later. The early to midth century certainly dealt with two world wars, inhuman industrialization, the rise of Modernism and the demise of empires to name just a few things. In our own time, however, those same problems seem to have become compounded by world-wide terrorism, the bombardment of constant communication and information via social media, a continued disintegration—first begun in the 20th century—of natural foundations, and, in the West, an accelerated abandonment of the faith.

Yet, while both time periods had their share of problems, both also share a common cure: Christ. Father Guardini thought so, and Cardinal Ratzinger worked for the same end in our own day.

Revisiting “The Spirit of the Liturgy”

AN old theological proverb says, "Nothing done by nature and grace is done in vain. Both the natural and the supernatural life of the soul, when lived in accordance with these principles, remain healthy, develop, and are enriched. In isolated cases the rules may be waived without any danger, when such a course is required or excused by reason of a spiritual disturbance, imperative necessity, extraordinary occasion, important end in view, or the like. In the end, however, this cannot be done with impunity. Just as the life of the body droops and is stunted when the conditions of its growth are not observed, so it is with spiritual and religious life--it sickens, losing its vigor, strength and unity.
