"The renewed liturgy calls for careful planning and preparation. Any good celebration does not just happen. It takes sound planning, careful thought, and a necessary attention to practical detail. It also takes a spirit of prayer to move it beyond a necessary job to a ministry of love in service to the Church's worship. In other words, the ministry of liturgical environment must combine the personalities of the Martha and Mary that we read of in the Scriptures -- an attention to detail so that the needs of the liturgy are provided for, and a spirit of contemplation so that this service is anchored in a prayerful waiting on the Lord and his people". -- Intro., p. 6.
