Anyone who watches or participates in a papal liturgy is struck with the seeming effortlessness with which it is conducted, resulting in a celebration that is prayerful, dignified and uplifting. The person responsible for orchestrating this is the priest designated the Master of Pontifical Ceremonies. Reverend Monsignor Guido Marini has performed this role for some time now, and his new book, translated by Fr. Nicholas Gregoris, explains how his liturgical judgments reflect sound theology as well as Pope Benedict XVI’s goals for the liturgical life of the entire church!
