EDITOR'S NOTE: We are very pleased to be able to offer our readers an exclusive pre-publication excerpt from The Spirit of the Liturgy by Cardinal Ratzinger, to be published by Ignatius Press in the fall of 2000.
In Chapter Three, presented here, Cardinal Ratzinger lays out the case for reconsidering the direction the priest faces during the celebration of Mass - toward the liturgical East ("ad orientem").
The translation of Cardinal Ratzinger's text is still being edited, so there may be some minor changes in the published version. Also, we have edited the text slightly (indicated by ellipses), and added textheads and paragraphing to facilitate reading in this format.
Ignatius Press is offering Adoremus Bulletin readers a ten percent pre-publication discount. Pre-publication orders can be placed at Ignatius Press' website (www.ignatius.com), by calling 1-800- 651-1531, or by writing Ignatius Press, P.O. Box 1339, Ft. Collins, CO 80522.
