On Pentecost of 1998, Pope John Paul II issued an apostolic letter entitled Dies Domini, in which he places before us a rich understanding of Sunday and its place in the Christian life. The letter offers the Church in Canada an opportunity to reflect on the treasure we have in Sunday and to re-examine our Sunday practice.
To help with this process, Bulletins #156 and #157 present the text of the letter along with helpful commentary and questions to stimulate thinking, discussion and action in communities across the country. The text has been reformatted in an easy-to-read format. In addition to the material on Dies Domini, three new regular feature items are introduced
in Bulletin #156.
- From the Regions - the regional liturgical conferences will keep us informed of their work throughout the year.
- From the National Office will present documents recently made available by the office and will keep us up-to-date on national projects.
- The Last Word found, of course, on the last page of each issue, will be reserved for comments from members of the Episcopal Commission for Liturgy.
The Bulletin will continue to include reviews of books of interest to all who are concerned about the continuing liturgical renewal.
