Fully Conscious, Fully Active: Essays in Honour of Gabe Huck
Editors: Bryan Cones and Stephen Burns
An ecumenical group of liturgical scholars and practitioners offers a collection of articles on the effect the work of Gabe Huck has had on liturgical thought and renewal throughout the Christian denominations of the west, with particular focus on the assembly, word and song, and the human person at prayer.
The authors then look forward to continuing development of these ideas in their own fields. Gabe Huck was the director of LTP from 1977 to 2001.
Under his leadership, it became an important source of liturgical education and formation. In his own writing, he linked the renewal of the liturgy with the work of justice, a link he continues to pursue in his life.

Eating Together, Becoming One
In November 2015, Pope Francis called on theologians to explore whether normal Catholic practice should be changed to allow Christians, belonging to other churches, to share fully at the table when they take part in a Eucharist celebrated by Catholics.
Thomas O’Loughlin provides his contribution to that challenge in this volume. He argues that the various ways of thinking about what we are doing in the liturgy should lead us to see intercommunion as enhancing our participation in the mystery of the Church and the mystery we celebrate.
