LITURGY MATTERS: A holiday reading suggestion

December 10, 2019 Fr Andrew Doohan

The holidays are fast approaching and I am beginning to look with delight at the pile of books I am waiting to read. Many of them theological – not just liturgy but also church and associated things. Tragic I know but I enjoy it!  Throughout the year, thanks to Fr. Andrew, Liturgy Matters has included a number of reviews of books we suggest are good reads.  Here is one more.  I haven’t read this one, but I am a fan of other books by Timothy O’Malley.  At the end of Andrew’s review I have added links to his other book reviews. Enjoy your holiday reading!
