Title: An international Colloquium on Rituals For Life
Author(s): LAMBERTS, Jozef
Journal: Questions Liturgiques/Studies in Liturgy
Volume: 86 Issue: 2-3 Date: 2005
More than forty years ago the Second Vatican Council promulgated its Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy. This document paved the way for the renewal, the aggiornamento of the liturgy. In our time the renewal has been realized, not only through the liturgical books but also in the concrete experience by the faithful. This fact was the occasion for the Belgian Conference of Bishops to proclaim the pastoral year 2004-2005 to be the 'Year of Liturgy', and this under the title 'Called to celebrate: liturgy at the centre of human life'. After one year focused on diaconia and another year on kerygma, the third important and essential aspect of our Church being, liturgy, this way is focussed on. Still to be developed is the fourth topic of koinônia or community building.
