I gave this a somewhat light reading while I was doing my adoration hour last Sunday. For the most part, it’s pretty good. The only thing that bothered me was the statements of Christ’s presence in priest, people, Word, and the Eucharist (from article 7 of Sacrosanctum Concilium as though they were all equal. The document itself says “especially the Eucharist.” Indeed, the Eucharist is Christ himself, Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity. I wish this had been accented when that statement had been used. Granted, some people go to the extreme of ignoring their brothers and sisters and the Word of God, but much of the danger I’ve witnessed is in the opposite extreme. Still, this letter is a good statement of how God loved us so much that he gave us his presence in such a wonderful way.
