How to handle symbols in liturgy, how not to handle symbols in liturgy, and what this has to do with the 2017 Week of Prayer for Christian Unity.

When I took my first theology class at St. John’s University, the professor (a Benedictine monk) stated that Martin Luther was, in a sense, a silent father at the Second Vatican Council.
“The most serious ideological challenge to the ecumenical–liturgical consensus and vision was certainly the 2001 Vatican document on translation, Liturgiam authenticam, a source of frustration to so many both within and outside the Roman Catholic Church.”
The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity that begins on Tuesday, January 18, 2011 and continues until the feast of the Conversion of Saint Paul on Tuesday, January 25, is a good opportunity for even small parishes to celebrate ecumenical liturgies such as the Liturgy of the Hours at which all Christians can participate and even preside.
