Bertone on Liturgy

It wasn’t a speaking gig, but a letter to the 58th Italian National Liturgical Week. Zenit has a brief story on Cardinal Bertone’s piece, but here’s a snippet in case you don’t want to engage the link:

“For every Christian generation, the Eucharist is the indispensable nutriment that sustains it while traversing the desert of this world, parched by ideological and economic systems that do not promote life, but rather degrade it; a world where the logic of power and possession dominates rather than that of service and love; a world where the culture of violence and death often triumph,” Cardinal Bertone said, citing the Pope’s homily from the solemnity of Corpus Christi.

For this reason, he wrote, “an active participation in the celebration of the liturgy makes the Christian more aware of (a) responsible vocation to be a sign and witness of a radically new way of acting in the world.”
