In My Own Words:
I'm a theologian and ethicist with an interest in Church Music. My reviews will indicate an orthodox position within the Catholic Church which supports the Magisterial teaching of the popes and the validity of Tradition.

Theology, ethics, music, cooking and my cat.

An Abundance of Graces: Reflections on Sacrosanctu&hellip by Pamela Jackson
'An Abundance of Graces' was published in 2004 and is still a timely commentary on Vatican II's Constitution on the Liturgy. Fifty years after the Council and the publication of reams of print on the matter, this book brings the reader back to the heart of the matter the liturgy as the source and summit of the Church's life, not an experimental laboratory.
The Joy of the Gospel: Evangelii Gaudium by Pope Francis
This is the American edition of this Apostolic Exhortation of Pope Francis. It says nothing new but the style is a revolution. It is personal to Pope Francis and filled with joyous optimism expressed in an accessible style and language; for that reason it will be read by many inside the Church and outside it.
Some sections of the Catholic press have hailed it as a 'return' to the spirit of Vatican II which may be overstating it somewhat. The Church is always in need of reform but that does not mean that its past is done away with, the Gospel is as always interpreted for the present time. Evangelii Gaudium is filled with faith, optimism and encouragement.
