Become One Body One Spirit in Christ
The much anticipated catechetical resource “Become One Body, One Spirit, In Christ” Has been launched at the Academy of Mary Immaculate in Fitzroy by the President of the Australian Catholic Bishops Conference, Archbishop Philip Wilson.
The DVD ROM Resource, which can be purchased from Fraynework or through St Paul’s publications (www.stpauls.com.au), is designed to explain more fully the changes to the English version of the Roman Missal; as well as imbue Catholics in the English-speaking world with an understanding of the parts of the liturgy – with a particular focus on the Eucharist.
The interactive resource contains sections on living a Eucharistic life; receiving the English translation; celebrating the Eucharist; exploring the Mass through the ages; and crafting the art of liturgy.
Present at the launch were Sr. Adele Howard RSM, Director of Fraynework Multimedia, who was a driving force behind the DVD ROM resource.
Sr Adele, who was responsible for filming the resource in many countries, gave a step-by-step introduction to the resource, showing the interactive nature of the content – which uses a remarkable breadth of multimedia to explain the liturgical norms which will gradually be adopted by Catholics in the English speaking world.
Also present to explain the implementation of changes to the Missal into the liturgy was Archbishop of Melbourne, Denis Hart. Archbishop Hart announced the musical settings which would be approved for use in parishes also – which will be made available more widely as the new translation is brought into parishes in 2011.
Director of the Bishops Commission for the Liturgy Fr. Peter Williams paid tribute to all who had worked together over eight years to produce the resource and the new translations of the Missal.
