In one convenient place, this volume assembles the essential, important, and current liturgical documents needed by pastoral ministers and students to prepare and learn about parish liturgical celebrations, especially for Sunday celebrations. This fifth edition has been updated to include the revised documents found in the third edition of The Roman Missal, recent documents from the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, and important encyclical letters. Pastoral overviews are provided for each document. These overviews explain the theology, purpose, and authority of each of the included documents.

Please note that since the publication of The Liturgy Documents, Volume 1, the United States Bishops have made a minor change to article 188 in Sing to the Lord: Music in Divine Worship. According to the Newsletter from the Bishops’ Committee on Divine Worship, (Volume XLVIII, August-September 2012): “In response to a request from the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments, the USCCB Administrative Committee adopted a change on September 12, 2012 to the U.S. Bishops’ 2007 guidelines on liturgical music, Sing to the Lord: Music in Divine Worship. Number 188 of the document has been altered to remove any further permission for the use of Christological tropes or other adaptations to the text of the Agnus Dei (Lamb of God).”

Article 188 now reads:

188. The supplicatory chant Agnus Dei accompanies the Fraction Rite. It is, “as a rule, sung by the choir or cantor with the congregation responding; or it is, at least, recited aloud. This invocation accompanies the fraction and, for this reason, may be repeated as many times as necessary until the rite has reached its conclusion, the last time ending with the words dona nobis pacem (grant us peace)” (GIRM, no. 83). The Agnus Dei should not be prolonged unnecessarily (see GIRM, no. 83) nor may other texts be added to this chant.
