Archbishop Chaput, of Denver U.S.A. began a Liturgy Series
on 11 September 2002, describing it as "The first in a series
of articles about the Catholic Mass and the new Roman Missal".
The newspaper articles are at archden.org/archbishop/ab04.htm
Here are links to the individual articles in the Liturgy Series:
