One Response to Metropolitan Kallistos Ware on the Divine Liturgy

  1. Matthew a Sinner says:

    An interesting note, last week I watched a DVD on the new translation of the Roman Mass in English and how it brings it back closer to the Original Latin of the Novus Ordo. This particular section’s commentary by the Catholic priest is almost identical to what Bishop Kallistos says here. Really cool that the “REFORM OF THE REFORM” brings the two liturgies closer together. I have always believed that the NOVUS ORDO in the Latin is closer to the Byzantine tradition as it should be. It was only the horrible English translations and practices that destroyed the continuity. In fact, I believe the N.O. properly translated and celebrated according to the rubrics is superior to the old 1962 Tridentine Use. I know that ruffles some feathers but I speak in terms of not only the meaning of what liturgy is and should be but what it can bring to a person’s spiritual life.
