Résumé / Abstract

After laying a more general theological foundation by noting how in one sense true liturgy is the Church's life, and that the New Testament proclaims an inextricable link between worship and daily living, the author summarizes the Vatican II Liturgy Constitution's vision of good liturgy (which glorifies God and sanctifies those glorifying Him, and fosters full, conscious, and active participation). He then turns to the question of ecclesial identity, noting how diversity belongs to the nature of things and that this nature should not be violated. Examples are provided to illustrate how Eastern Catholic identity has been violated, and that in some instances Rome itself, especially most recently, has intervened to remind Eastern Catholics of the need to restore zeon, infant communion, the iconostasis, public celebration of Vespers, Matins and the Liturgy of the Pre-sanctified Gifts, hierarchical services, reverence in celebration, baptism by immersion, real prosphorae as opposed to pre-cut breads, and sung, as opposed to read, Liturgies. Throughout he insists on the need for Eastern Catholic bishops to be obedient to Vatican instructions concerning authentic Eastern worship.
