Discussing some of the publications by Dennis Smolarski, S.J. on Catholic liturgy.


About John Lilburne



Fr Dennis Smolarski, S.J.

In looking at some of the new books being published by Liturgy Training Publications I noticed two particularly interesting Question and Answer books by Father Dennis C. Smolarski, S.J. The questions being answered are similar to ones I have addressed on RomanRite.com.

I have read two of his books and been very impressed with them:

Liturgical Literacy: From Anamnesis to Worship and

How not To Say Mass: A Guidebook For All Concerned About Authentic Worship.

Liturgical Literacy is a dictionary of liturgical terms. Many are available on the internet at: www.catholicgbg.org/tasteandseeweb/resources/hometab/liturgicalterms.html

Looking at the complete list of his publications highlights the depth of his contribution to Catholic liturgy.
