Liturgical Incultaration

Liturgical inculturation is not something that came about with the reform led by Archbishop Bugnini, although many times some commentators seem to ascribe it to him. Here is a clip (biretta tip to Orbis Catholicus) of the ancient Eritrean Orthodox liturgy that took place yesterday in Rome. The Western Liturgy following the pattern of Rome is based on noble simplicity. For us this liturgy seems so very different to all other things we are used to, even different from the Greek (Byzantine) liturgy. However this is an ancient liturgy through which God is glorified and we his people sanctified.
All peoples: praise the Lord, the King!
