Pray Tell Roundtable Discussion with Anthony Ruff, OSB and Rachelle Kramer, Fr. Bob Webster, and Paul Inwood:
“New Pope, New Church?”
Archive of the Rountable Discussion:
Pope Francis—or is it Francis, Bishop of Rome?—is a media sensation with off-the-charts positive poll ratings. Everyone is talking about the marked change in style in Rome, with simplified ceremonial and vesture within and outside the liturgy. From Holy Thursday in prison to Lampedusa, liturgy is being linked strongly with social issues. What does it all mean? Can any tentative conclusions be drawn yet about Francis’ priorities? Are the expectations for change overdrawn in some quarters? What’s in store for liturgical renewal going forward? Tune in for a bit of crystal-ball gazing.
