.- On the occasion of the 40th anniversary of the promulgation of the constitution on sacred liturgy “Sacrosanctum Concilium” during the II Vatican Council, the Congregation for Divine Worship and Discipline of Sacraments has announced a symposium that will review the state of liturgical reform.

The conference, to be held at the Vatican on December 4, will be presided by the Prefect of the Dicastery, Cardinal Francis Arinze.

The Congregation announced that the one day event will discuss the themes:  “ ‘Sacrosanctum Concilium’ forty years later: between the past and future,”  “The liturgy of John Paul II,” and “One hundred years after the document  ‘Tra le sollecitudini’ by St. Pius X: balance and perspectives.”

“Tra le Sollecitudini” (“Among the cares”,) was Pope Pius X's “motu proprio” on sacred music and liturgical chant. Promulgated on November 22, 1903, the document is now 100 years old.

Besides the officials of the dicastery, participants at the symposium will include Cardinal Francis George, O.M.I., Archbishop of Chicago; Cardinal Joachim Meisner, Archbishop of Cologne (Germany;) Archbishop Christian Wiyghan Tumi of Douala (Cameroon;) Archbishop Ivan Dias of Bombay (India;)   Bishop Stefan Cichy, Auxiliary of Katowice (Poland;)  Dom Phillipe Dupont, O.S.B., Abbot of  the monastery of Solesmes (France;)   Fr. Matias Auge, C.M.F. and Fr. Alberto Aranda Cervantes, M.Sp.S., both consultants for the Congregation for Divine Worship and Discipline of Sacraments.

The symposium, which will take place in the New Hall of the Synod, will be open to personnel of the Roman Curia and pontifical universities, as well as experts in liturgy and sacred music.
