STUDIES ON HOLY WEEK

Below can be found a few of the more recent studies on Holy Week and its reform.  Most helpful for understanding the problems with the "Restoration of Holy Week" reform, as well as for growing in a deeper appreciation for the richness of the pre-1955 Holy Week. 

Special thank you to Rorate Caeli, Una Voce, and New Liturgical Movement for the following publications and for the work they do for the promotion and preservation of the  Sacred Liturgy.

A section from Dr. Kwasniewski's lecture at Most Precious Blood of Jesus Parish in Pittsburgh covering the losses suffered in the Roman Rite between 1948 and 1962, and their recovery. We would like to thank Dr. Kwasniewski for his great study and contribution to the most important questions on the use of the Liturgy.

We would also like to recommend our readers to view the rest of this lecture which greatly helps to understand the impact of these losses on our Liturgy in general and our duty to recover and pass on the treasure of the Traditional Roman Rite.
