El peligro del incremento de las celebraciones litúrgicas
del Calendario Romano General
José Antonio Goñi Beásoain de Paulorena
The article initially examines the principles that have guided the reform of the general Roman calendar post Vatican II in order to define the context in which new celebrations have subsequently been inserted, demonstrating how far the general principles defined by the council have been enhanced or contradicted. Secondly, the dangers posed by the excessive number of existing celebrations of saints’ feasts in the calendar are explored. Finally, an illuminating comparison between the Tridentine calendar and the current calendar, as it existed at the time of the original publication and through its early evolution, is presented. Ultimately the article draws a set of conclusions from the preceding examination.
