Dear Reverend, Brothers and Sisters,
Pope Francis addressed the National Italian Liturgical Week on 24 August wherein he
reviewed the journey since Liturgical Movement through Liturgy Reform of Vatican II.
Besides, he reflected on the theme: “A Living Liturgy for a Living Church”.
The Pope pointed out that ‘we can affirm with certainty and with
magisterial authority that the liturgical reform is irreversible’.
We have pleasure in sharing a Chinese translation of the Pope’s address for
your perusal, together with the original Italian text and the English
translation (translated by Zenit).
