Should we hold hands during the "Our Father"? Is liturgical dancing OK? Should the priest say "Good morning" at Mass? And what about those water lillies sprouting in our new font? Msgr. Peter Elliott responds to these and many other liturgical questions in a clear and, at times humorous way. He deals with the questions people have about the way Mass and the Sacraments are meant to be celebrated.

Based largely on Msgr. Elliott's replies to problems first raised in a question box format in the mission magazine Christ to the World, this book includes not only broad issues but also many questions relating to the fine details that make up Catholic worship. Liturgical Question Box also gives the author of Ceremonies of the Modern Roman Rite the opportunity to explain positions in more detail he took in that book.

Because this book is technically accurate and based on experience and pastoral common sense, it is a reliable guide for pastors, seminarians, liturgical committees, servers, etc. -- and for perplexed,laity who want to know what should be done in celebrating the Liturgy. Its strong spiritual tone and confident approach should appeal to a wider audience and make it a welcome resource for anyone who wants to promote the mystery, splendor and majesty of Catholic worship today.
