Abstract:

In a situation such as our own, when society is suffering so much from lack of a valid life of ritual and symbol, the Church's living tradition of initiation into the meaningful mystery of existence offers more abundant life not only to those who are formally her members; a truly liturgical Christian life, and a truly living Christian liturgy, can offer much even to those who as yet see both from outside. So that this book has significance far outside the area of explicitly professed Christianity. But it is to the Christian that it is first addressed. Baptism and Confirmation, as initiation into the glorious mystery of the death and resurrection of Christ and the power to show it forth in the world, here and now--this is the theme.
