Rorate Caeli

Habemus ad Dominum

Next week, the Italian translation of Father Uwe Michael Lang's famous book, Turning Towards the Lord: Orientation in Liturgical Prayer, with a foreword by then Cardinal Ratzinger, will be presented in Rome at the Augustinianum Institute, next to the Palace of the Holy Office.

The Secretary of the Congregation for Divine Worship, Archbishop A. Ranjith Patabendige Don (mentioned in our recent chronology), will make the official presentation of the book. The Italian edition includes a postface by Professor Nicola Bux, who notices "the agreement between Father Lang's argument for the orientation of the celebrant to the East and the Hebrew and Paleo-Christian sources (not only Western, but also of the Middle East and North Africa)."
Father Lang is a member of the London Oratory. The first chapter of the book is available here.
