VATICAN CITY, NOV 23, 2004 (VIS) - The Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of Sacraments has undertaken the task of promoting every year on  December 4, the anniversary of the Constitution "Sacrosanctum Concilium," a day of study on themes of liturgical interest. The celebration this year will start at 9 a.m. in the Hundred Days Room of the Chancery Building. The theme of the 2004 study day is occasioned by the publication of the second edition of the "'Martyrologium Romanum'. Theology, Liturgy, Holiness."

  The Martyrologium, says a communique, "is a liturgical book filled with history and is of great ecclesial interest as it expresses in the most complete way the sense of that particular and renewed attention that the Church reserves to the veneration of the saints, in a special way during the pontificate of John Paul II."

  The study day, which will feature opening remarks by Cardinal Francis Arinze, will offer theological and liturgical reflections as well as specialized contributions in the field of hagiography. For this occasion, several priceless handwritten codes and celebrated print editions of the liturgical book, on loan from the Vatican Library, will be exhibited.
