In this class, Fr. Schumer answers some questions on “hot button issues” pertaining to the liturgy and discusses the hope for a post-Vatican II Church.

What is the liturgy and how to do we navigate the tide of opinions?  And if the liturgy is so important, why has it changed so much in the last fifty years? Isn’t this an anomaly in the history of the Church? What do the documents of Vatican II really teach about the liturgy and its development?
