Arguably the most influential tenet of the Second Vatican Council was the mandate for the “full, conscious, and active participation” of all the people in the liturgy as the aim before all else. In over 50 years since the council, much has been achieved toward this goal. The people can hear and respond in their own languages, pray and sing many parts of the Mass, and serve in many liturgical ministries. Yet, for many, the conscious engagement in the liturgy is still elusive. As the title suggests, this handbook was prepared specifically for the people in the pew, yet it may be even more helpful for priests, deacons, catechists and teachers in Catholic elementary and secondary schools since they are frequently fielding questions about the liturgy that are addressed in this book. Those involved in catechumenate ministry will find that it is a great resource for catechumens and neophytes, especially for the newly baptized during the period of mystagogia. This handbook also serves as a tool for ongoing formation for liturgical musicians, helping them to see how their ministry serves the liturgy and what is the intent of each element. This handbook is not just intended to provide the answers to questions many Catholics have regarding “what we do in Catholic worship and why we do it.” It is not for intellectual enlightenment, but to help each person in the pew through a renewed attentiveness and an openness to the transformative power of the liturgy in order to deepen their faith and encounter the Presence of God.
