LITURGY & PERSONALITY
The point of this book authored by philosopher Dietrich von Hildebrand is the liturgy of the Church decisively shapes a healthy personality. Dietrich insists the primary purpose of the liturgy is not to form the personality but to give proper praise to God, the supreme value. However, precisely by ordering human beings so thoroughly to God, the liturgy does in fact, as a derivative effect, contribute to their flourishing. Paperback. 160 pages.
