Varietates Legitimae 52: Areas of Adaptation in the Roman Rite

VL’s Chapter IV considers those “areas of adaptation.” In this small section, we look ahead to this final topic of the document Varietates Legitimae, what we’ll be covering as we wrap up the final issues of inculturation in the Roman Rite.


52. The constitution Sacrosanctum Concilium had in mind an inculturation of the Roman rite when it gave norms for the adaptation of the liturgy to the mentality and needs of different peoples, when it provided for a degree of adaptation in the liturgical books (cf. below Nos. 53-61), and also when it envisaged the possibility of more profound adaptations in some circumstances, especially in mission countries (cf. below Nos. 63-64).
