Overview
After suffering an eclipse during the post-Vatican II liturgical reform, popular piety has regained its vital role in the spiritual life of Catholics. In response to its re-emergence, the Congregation for divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments issued the Directory on Popular Piety and the Liturgy on December 17, 2001. The Directory was written for bishops and their collaborators as a pastoral guide addressing the relationship between liturgy and popular piety. Directory on Popular Piety and the Liturgy: Principles and Guidelines, A Commentary by Peter C. Phan provides a chapter-by-chapter commentary on the Directory, summarizing its contents, highlighting its strengths and weaknesses, and offering suggestions on how devotional practices can be implemented in the United States. For liturgists, religious educators and students, pastoral leaders, and other interested Christians, this volume is helpful toward promoting a vigorous and authentic devotional life in the community, while respecting the preeminence of liturgical worship.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
This is a volume a booklover just can't wait to own.  Apr 21, 2006
The devotions created, developed, and practiced by the common people fulfill a special role in the spiritual life of the Church. Although Vatican Council II thoroughly reviewed and revised the liturgy, little attention was directed to popular devotions. Attending to that gap, in 2001 the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments at the Vatican issued the DIRECTORY ON POPULAR PIETY AND THE LITURGY: PRINCIPLES AND GUIDELINES. The commentary that Peter Phan has edited illuminates the DIRECTORY, reinforcing the three principles that undergird the relationship between liturgy and popular piety: the necessity of liturgy and the sacraments to supercede devotions; the need to align popular piety with current customs and culture; and the desirability of separating and defining liturgy as distinct from popular piety.

While directed primarily to bishops and the clergy, those involved in relevant aspects of ministry will want to review the Vatican document along with the commentary to properly direct both liturgy and devotions.
