"I have looked all over your website and still cannot find the answers I need. Where do I go?" Yes, I must admit that this website is not the end-all for liturgical questions. To satisfy the growing desires of the faithful to know what constitutes "correct" liturgical practice, several books have recently been published.

This book is the second book by Msgr. Elliott concerning liturgical matters. The first, Ceremonies of the Modern Roman Rite, was meant to be more of a manual for those planning liturgical celebrations. This book addresses more of the other aspects of liturgical worship that were not addressed in Ceremonies.

The book is broken up into chapters addressing topics such as the liturgy of the word, the liturgy of the eucharist, gestures, adoration, funerals and other topics. Each topic in the chapter is written in the form of a question as much of the topic material comes from a newspaper column with the same title as the book. Each answer includes pastoral suggestions and thoughts but not all include reference to specific legislation. We also noticed one error concerning the washing of feet on Holy Thursday. The book states that the Roman Missal says to wash the feet of twelve men when the Missal doesn't name a specific number. Apart from this, we found the book extremely helpful, especially for its pastoral advice which provides a little more substance than simple rubrical answers.
