Pope Francis' Apostolic Letter on the Sacred Liturgy

On June 29, 2022, our Holy Father issued an Apostolic Letter on the Sacred Liturgy, Desiderio Desideravi, on the liturgical formation of the People of God.  Its title is drawn from Luke 22:15 – “I have eagerly desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer.” In addition to highlighting significant elements of liturgical theology, the Holy Father calls for “serious and vital liturgical formation.”  The nature of sacramental encounter, of symbols and symbolic language, of the ars celebrandi and the need to engage all the baptized in the fruitful celebration of the Paschal Mystery are addressed in the Apostolic Letter.
