Liturgy by In a tribute to the late Msgr Klaus Gamber, Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger endorsed an observation made to him by a young priest: "Today we need a new Liturgical Movement." In its origins, the Liturgical Movement was not primarily concerned with ritual reform. First and foremost it sought the return of liturgical spirituality to its rightfully central place in Christian life. As Dom Beauduin eloquently explains in this volume: It is impossible...to overemphasise the fact that souls seeking God must associate themselves as intimately and as frequently as possible with all the manifestations of the hierarchical priestly life [the Liturgy]...which places them directly under the influence of the priesthood of Jesus Christ Himself. That is the primary law of the sanctity of souls. For all alike, wise and ignorant, infants and adults, lay and religious, Christians of the first and Christians of the twentieth century, leaders of an active or of a contemplative life, for all the faithful of the Church without exception, the greatest possible active and frequent participation in the priestly life of the visible hierarchy, according to the manner prescribed in the liturgical canons, is the normal and infallible path to a solid piety that is sane, abundant, and truly Catholic, that makes them children of their holy mother the Church in the fullest sense of this ancient and Christian phrase. Liturgy the Life of the Church, without doubt one of the Liturgical Movement's seminal works, provides a sound foundation for those who accept the challenge and the urgency of reviving and of realising this vision in the twenty-first century.
