Reform of the Reform
Fr. Thomas Kocik
A fascinating fictional debate!
Disturbed by the direction in which the post Vatican II liturgical reforms have moved, two fictitious representatives of mutually antagonistic movements debate the remedy for "correct" liturgical reform. This unique work presents a debate between a "traditionalist" who argues for a return to the pre-Vatican II liturgy, and a "reformist" (no liberal himself) who advocates a new liturgical reform more in keeping with what the Council fathers had in mind. They bring to the debate the insights of renowned authorities on the liturgy, including Cardinal Ratzinger, Msgr. Klaus Gamber, Michael Davies, Fr. Brian Harrison and Fr. Aidan Nichols.
“Fr. Kocik presents an enlightening and fair debate between traditionalists and reformers on how to resolve the current liturgical crisis in the Catholic Church.”
—Fr. Kenneth Baker, S.J., Editor, Homiletic & Pastoral Review
