Liturgy and the Domestic Church
The Second Vatican Council rehabilitated an ancient way of speaking about the family when it declared that the family should be known as the Domestic Church. Since that time, there has been a flood of interest in developing this ecclesial identity of the family. This course will not only look to survey the contributions of various authors working on developing this theology, but also makes its own contribution in applying liturgical theology to the life of the family and thus demonstrating how the family is authentically a Church and has an authentic liturgical character of its own.
