Weigel reviews Marini's book

In this week's Denver Catholic Register, George Weigel takes a critical look at Archbishop Piero Marini's "A Challenging Reform" and says that if you want an insight into the ideas that shaped the new liturgy, you need to look elsewhere.
Marini’s tale is bureaucratic rather than substantive – a lumbering walk through the maneuvers by which the “Consilium for the Implementation of the Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy” (an entity created by Pope Paul VI) wrested control of the reform process from the Curia’s Congregation for Rites and held the bit in its teeth for a crucial five-year period, 1964-1969.
