Preaching the New Lectionary

Preaching the New Lectionary

2000 Catholic Press Association Award Winner! The Lectionary is made up of selected passages from the Bible, placed within a literary and liturgical context. This new context calls for a consideration of the liturgical character and setting of the Lectionary readings. Preaching the New Lectionary: Year B, offers readers that interpretation. Preaching the New Lectionary is unique. First, it employs a literary-liturgical way of interpreting all the readings of each Sunday and major feast of the liturgical year, including the often overlooked responsorial psalm. Second, it explicitly situates the interpretation of each day within the theology of its respective liturgical season. This theology is drawn from the specific themes of the readings that comprise that particular year rather than from more general themes associated with the season. The meaning of the entire season becomes the context for understanding the individual parts of it. Third, the lections are also read in sequential order from the first Sunday of that season to the last. This reading interprets the function of the literary forms, thus providing yet another way of interpreting the riches of the readings. This way of reading and understanding the Lectionary has potential for liturgical ministry. It can quicken the religious imagination of homilists, thus providing fresh new possibilities for liturgical preaching. It offers creative insights for those involved in the liturgical preparation for the celebration of feasts and seasons. It can also act as a valuable resource for liturgical catechesis. The insights included in Preaching the New Lectionary contribute toward enhancing the liturgical lives of the faithful.

Political Leadership in France

From Charles de Gaulle to Nicolas Sarkozy

Political Leadership in France

Gaffney analyzes how de Gaulle came to power in 1958: The drama surrounding the Fourth Republic's collapse, and the focus upon an exceptional individual meant that de Gaulle was able to confer a particular style of leadership on the Fifth Republic. The five Presidents who came after him have each capitalized on their own political 'persona.'

Paul Celan, la bibliothèque philosophique

Paul Celan, la bibliothèque philosophique

Ce répertoire recense près de 500 ouvrages, soit environ un dixième de la bibliothèque de Paul Celan aujourd'hui conservée au Deutsches Literaturarchiv à Marbach am Neckar. Il inventorie des livres, des extraits et des gloses écrits en six langues - l'allemand, le français, le russe, le grec ancien, l'anglais et le latin - et enregistre toutes les annotations de la main de Celan. Organisé en six chapitres suivant le plan classique de l'histoire de la philosophie, il retrace dans toute sa complexité le parcours intellectuel du poète, des présocratiques à Heidegger, Husserl, Bloch, Adorno et Derrida, en passant par Montaigne, Pascal, Leibniz, Hegel et Nietzsche, mais aussi Chestov et Lao-Tseu. Frappante est la cohérence de ses lectures. Les textes qu'il relève, questionne, corrige, récrit à coups de marques préférentielles constituent son anthologie de la philosophie. Celan nourrissait le projet de composer un " livre des amis " à l'instar du Buch der Freunde de Hugo von Hofmannsthal. Le présent volume réalise d'une certaine manière son vœu d'établir un recueil d'extraits ad se ipsum et peut être lu comme le premier chapitre de son journal d'écrivain. On y découvre, on y reconnaît ses préoccupations, l'objet de ses spéculations poétiques, de ses idées à la rencontre et à l'encontre de son temps : la Shoah, l'antisémitisme et les violences protéiformes de l'Histoire, le nihilisme, la résistance de l'humain, le dialogisme de la parole, la mélancolie... Mais c'est avant tout un document singulier sur les rapports entre philosophie et poésie, dont Paul Celan bouleverse les représentations habituelles et bouge les frontières.
