I received word of a great opportunity for those of you within striking distance of Manhattan. This, from a friend:
Dom Alcuin Reid, noted author and liturgist, will present a talk this Sunday, June 22nd, at the Church of the Holy Innocents in Manhattan (37th Street between Broadway and 7th Avenue). His talk will follow Solemn Vespers and Benediction at 2:30 pm. Fr. Richard Cipolla will introduce Dom Reid. His talk is entitled “Elements of the New Liturgical Movement.”
Dom Reid is a monk of the Monastère Saint Benoit in the Diocese of Fréjus-Toulon in France. As Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger, Pope Benedict XVI wrote the preface for Dom Reid’s influential book on the history of the Liturgical Movement up to the reforms of Pope Pius XII, The Organic Development of the Liturgy. Dom Reid’s new book is entitled Sacred Liturgy.
Dom Reid will also speak on Friday, June 20th, at 7:30 pm at the Church of St. Mary on West Avenue in Norwalk, Connecticut.
You all know that Holy Innocents has been the topic of a lot of discussion.
Perhaps you might, in your goodness, make plans to attend not only to hear what will be a good talk (I’ve heard Reid… he’s good), but also to give support to Holy Innocents.
