A good introductory book to the sacraments. Pastorally oriented.. The commentary on the rites leads to full, true and active participation in the celebration.

A Great Resource for Any Liturgical Minister 7 Sept. 2000
By M. Ramos - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book presents an insightful and valuable presentation on the principles and liturgical practice of the sacraments of the Catholic Church and how they are perceived by the Second Vatican Council. After three introductory chapters that deal with a reflection on the quality of liturgical worship during the years after the Council, Smolarsky states that sacraments need to be experienced as practices that establish relationships between and among God and human beings. The author discusses each of the seven sacraments, giving a brief historical development and then an explanation of the present rites and their effectiveness. In an insighful final chapter, there is a presentation of actual practices that prevent the full power of the rites. This is a very concise and effective resource for clergy and laity involved in liturgy. The fact that is both well written and brief makes Smolarski's book a first hand source for weekly liturgical planning.

The Mystery of Faith 24 April 2012
By Briney - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Sacred Mysteries offers an insightful and faithful vision of our Catholic understanding of the sacramental principal and its manifestation in the seven sacraments.

In addition to sharing the Church's theological vision he offers many practical insights and suggestions for a deeper and fuller celebration not only of the sacraments but also related sacramentals.

His movement "From Principles... ...to Practice" helps to distinguish theology from the many useful suggestions.

The most helpful chapter for me is the last "Obfuscating the Mystery." He concludes with what is obviously the goal of his book, ..."Liturgy that is celebrated according to the best of Christian traditions can help open ourselves up to the mystery of God and Christ's body the church. This is a goal well worth all our efforts."

Amen!

'Sacred/ancient Mysteries' aren't found in this book 29 Oct. 2014
By Brad Watson, Miami - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
'Sacred Mysteries' as a title to this book is very misleading! All the ancients had their "sacred Mysteries" aka "ancient Mysteries" (google that). These oral traditions taught the unity of one God, reincarnation and sacred geometry/gematria. Jesus son of Joseph was initiated in the sacred Mysteries and he taught them to his inner circle. The author of this book is oblivious to the real "sacred Mysteries".
