Liturgical Prayer: What do we need today?
with John Baldovin, SJ
Professor of Historical and Liturgical Theology at Boston College School of Theology and Ministry
Pope Francis says the liturgy is an action “for the people, but also of the people.” Father Baldovin shares Francis’ explanation that “liturgy is not so much about doctrine in some abstract sense but about putting Christian life into action. The Eucharist in particular is not so much an act of private piety as it is the formation of the people of God.”
