Divine Worship and Human Healing: Liturgical Theology at the Margins of Life and Death


Collegeville, Minn.: Liturgical Press, 2009.

Bruce Morrill, S.J., Associate Professor, Department of Theology

In Divine Worship and Human Healing Morrill turns to the rites serving the sick, dying, deceased, and grieving to show why sacramental liturgy is so fundamental to the life of faith. Readers will appreciate both his compelling narratives from actual pastoral experience and his engagement with biblical, theological, historical, and social-scientific resources. Morrill invites readers to discover how the liturgical ministry of healing discloses God's merciful love amid communities of faith.
