Report at Assisi Meet

so enthusiastically received in the United States that “it
would be a great waste” if the faithful are not encouraged
to take “an equally enthusiastic part in the sacred liturgy

O'Hara, Bishop of Kansas City
St. Joseph, was bringing to th.
International Congress of Pas
toral Liturgy here. While he
wes meking final revisions on
the address in a Milan hotel
room, he hed a heart attack and
He was preparing to give the
report, titled “The Restored Holy
Week in the United States of
America,” as head of the 100
member American delegation to
His paper was based chiefly on
reports he received from 93
American bishops. His account of
how the Holy Week reforms were
carried out in the United States
ended with specific recommenda
tions, as summarized from the
reports sent him by the U.S. bish
One recommends 11 o n was
that the vernacular (English in
the United Stetes) be used
more extensively in Holy Week
services. Another asked *hat
the present three-hour Eucha
ristic fast regulation for after
noon and evening Masses be
extended to morning Masses as
Archbishop O’Hara wrote that
the reports he received from the
93 U.S. bishops “clearly indicate”
that the first observance of the
restored Holy Week rites in the
United States was an “overwhelm
ing success so far as general en
thusiasm and enormous increases
in attendance, and in the recep
tion of Holy Communion, are con
At the same time, Archbishop
O'Hara’s report emphasized that
increased attendance at Holy
Week services “is only the first
step.” He quoted one bishop as
“Physical presence is not
enough. After our people are
there, they must be helped along
the road to a more intelligent un
derstanding of the liturgy and a
more complete participation in
the same Thp new Ordo of
fers almost unlimited possibili
ties in this direction.’’
Elsewhere in the report,
Archbishop O'Hara suggested
that a “great deal of education
of clergy and faithful alike is
needed” if the Easter Vigil “is
to take its rightful place as the
principal service in the whole
A great many of the reports
sent to Archbishop O'Hara by his
fellow members of the American
hierarchy said, in connection
with participation by the laity,
that a greater use of the vernac-
ular “would be most desirable.”
He said only a few reports indi
cated opposition to an extended
use of the vernacular. One bish
“Most of our priests think that
a more liberal use of English
should be permitted in all the
ceremonies of Holy Week. They
would not want any change in
the language of the'Mass itself
but they are convinced that the
use of English in other Holy
Week ceremonies, especially in
the Easter Vigil, would help the
people spiritually and would en
able them to participate to a
greater extent in the liturgy.”
Summing up the recommenda
tions of the American Bishops on
the use of the vernacular in the
Holy Week rites, Archbishop
“Renewal of the baptismal vows
in the vernacular at the Easter
Vigil has had the startling effect
of transforming the congregation
from spectators to participants.
People lose contact with the cere
mony in long readings in Latin.
All extended responses calling
for the participation of the peo
ple should be in the vernacular.
This suggestion includes a Palm
Sunday processional hymn, the
litanies, the improperia, and the
lessons at the Vigil to which the
people are expected to listen.”
