Pope: May the study of the liturgy lead to greater ecclesial unity

Liturgy 33.2: Pastoral Liturgy and Pope Francis — Liturgical ConferenceAddressing members of the Pontifical Liturgical Institute of Sant’ Anselmo on Saturday 7th May, to celebrate 60 years since the institution’s foundation, Pope Francis noted that their meeting “came about as a response to the growing need of the People of God to live and participate more intensely in the liturgical life of the Church”.
Pope Francis went on to note three dimensions that emerge clearly from the Council’s drive for the renewal of liturgical life. These are: active and fruitful participation in the liturgy; ecclesial communion animated by the celebration of the Eucharist and the Sacraments of the Church; and the impetus to the evangelising mission from the liturgical life that involves all the baptised.
