Q: If you could be so kind, I would like to know what the difference is between two of your book on the New Order of Celebrating Matrimony?
I purchased and read ONE LOVE – which I found helpful – and then I received a flyer in the mail from Liturgical Press marketing your new book: INSEPARABLE LOVE. Could you let me know if ordering INSEPARABLE LOVE would be of great benefit to me. It seems to replicate ONE LOVE, but maybe I am incorrect on first glance. I look forward to hearing from you.
A: Thanks for your comments on my book. In a nutshell, One Love describes the difference between the first and second editions of the Order of Celebrating Matrimony. It is a pastoral book.
Inseparable Love is a paragraph-by-paragraph commentary on the entire Order of Celebrating Matrimony. It’s an academic book.
Inseparable Love does not replicate One Love, but rather explains the history of each part of the marriage ceremony. It explains how and why the revisions of the ceremony took place right after Vatican II. It compares our book with others in use in French Canada and Latin America.
Both are available from Liturgical Press. Thanks for asking.
