Turning Towards the Lord
Talking of book launches, it's good to hear from Fr Tim at Hermeneutic of Continuity about the release of the Italian version of Turning Towards the Lord by Fr Michael Lang. He is a German priest at the London Oratory with a doctorate in theology from St John's College, Oxford - incidentally, he is one of about ten of my University friends who went on to become a priest! This launch takes place tomorrow at the Augustinianum, Rome and will include a presentation by Archbishop Malcolm Ranjith, the newly appointed Sri Lankan Secretary of the Congregation for Divine Worship (CDW). It's good to see such high level support for a book studying orientation in the Sacred Liturgy (i.e. facing East) - will there be further directives on this issue from Rome, I wonder?
