This new edition is significantly expanded and revised to take into account important material from the Third Edition of the Roman Missal, the new General Instruction of the Roman Missal, Pope Benedict's apostolic exhortation Sacramentum Caritatis, and the Vatican's Instruction on the Eucharist, Redemptionis Sacramentum. Additional material has been added on celebrating the parish feast day, principles involved in decorating, and fakery in the liturgical environment. New information on the font and various baptismal scenarios for the Easter Vigil is also included. Three new chapters focus on celebrating marriages, funerals, and anointing the sick; on the concept of progressive solemnity in the liturgy; and on liturgical furniture for conference use when Mass is not celebrated in a church. Finally, new discussion questions present opportunities for reflection and discussion.

This latest edition of a useful reference work will be a welcome addition to any clergy member's bookshelf. The useful information it contains could also satisfy the questions of laypersons, who have always wondered "why we do that" or simply wanted an authoritative refresher on the meaning of rituals, vestments, and clothing the sacred environment.

When you walk into a Catholic church building, you know where everything should be. Or do you? The rules governing liturgical space sprout ever-new leaves due to a growing series of books and decrees. Mark G. Boyer organizes this legislation by theme, shows why the law says what it does, and makes practical applications that will affirm and surprise you. After reading this book, you'll see the insides of churches as you never have before.
Rev. Paul Turner, pastor, St. Anthony Catholic Church, Kansas City MO, author, Let Us Pray: A Guide to the Rubrics of Sunday Mass
