From Philosophical Contemplation
Towards Fruitful Participation in the Mystery of Christ

based on the text of Sacrosanctum Concilium nº 11 and 48:

nº 11: ut fideles scienter, actuose et fructuose […] participent

nº 48: Ecclesia sollicitas curas eo intendit
ne christifideles huic fidei mysterio tamquam extranei vel muti spectatores intersint,
sed per ritus et p
eces id bene intellegentes, sacram actionem conscie, pie at actuose participent.
