Abstract

The twentieth century was a century of liturgical reforms. Every century has spent great resources on the liturgy, but hardly any other century has spent so much effort on changing it as the twentieth. Yet no-one seems content with what has been achieved. Five motives for liturgical reform are discussed: repristination, active participation, pastoral adaptation, ecumenical convergence, and the simple desire to renew. Individualistic attempts at renewal are particularly problematic. It is suggested that the liturgy should be left more alone, in order to allow people to experience it as something given.
