Vatican City, Dec 1, 2020 / 13:00 pm
Pope Francis said Tuesday that inculturated liturgy can teach Catholics to better appreciate the diverse gifts of the Holy Spirit.
In a preface to a new book, Pope Francis said "this process of liturgical inculturation in Congo is an invitation to value the various gifts of the Holy Spirit, which are a treasure for all humanity."
A year ago, Pope Francis offered Mass in St. Peter's Basilica for Congolese immigrants, marking the 25th anniversary of the foundation of the Congolese Catholic Chaplaincy of Rome.
The inculturated Mass included traditional Congolese music and the Zaire Use of the Ordinary Form of the Roman Rite.
