A Message from the President

Sisters, Bobby Vee, George ‘Mojo’ Buford, Gary Puckett, Bob Dylan, the artist (formerly and again known as) Prince, the award winning St Paul Chamber Orchestra, and who could ever forget (no matter how hard we try) Hüsker Dü, Lipps Inc, or of course, the Six Fat Dutchmen Polka Band from New Ulm (pronounced Ul-um by locals)? The Academy Committee had to restrain me from making either the opening worship or the Banquet Table Prayer a ‘Polka Service’ of some sort. Together with your Academy Committee, I am very excited about this year’s meeting. Worship will be celebrated in two historic church buildings nearby. First, the opening worship, followed by Don La Salle’s Vice-Presidential address ‘The Poetics of Time,’ will be on January 1 at 7:00 PM at Central Lutheran Church, a ten-minute walk through the Sky Way (accessible on the second floor of the Hyatt). This year we are returning to the ‘Ordo’ prepared and used for the Milwaukee and San Francisco meetings. Morning worship on Saturday will be at Westminster Presbyterian Church and led by Presbyterian members of our Academy. The stained glass windows at Westminster are exquisite and I am pleased we can be there in the morning to see them. On Friday morning there will be a breakfast at which the Godfrey Diekmann Award will be presented to Fr. Virgilio Elizondo, who under doctor’s orders against travel, will be delivering his brief response to us electronically. Abbot John Klassen, OSB of St. John’s Abbey, Collegeville MN (where Fr. Godfrey was a monk) and Dr. William Cahoy of St. John’s School of Theology (where Fr. Godfrey taught) will be in

Dear Academy Members and Friends, Welcome to Minneapolis, to St. Paul, to the Hyatt Regency, and to Minnesota in general. I told you it would be cold! What a delight to be able to celebrate our Academy in these wonderful and historic cities. The Twin Cities boast many important churches, synagogues, art museums, theatres, concert stages, symphony orchestras, choral societies, colleges and universities along with a vibrant and ever-increasing multicultural landscape. Indeed, the Twin Cities have emerged as a center for liturgical music and the arts. Although Christianity is dominant, with Lutherans and Roman Catholics in the majority (due to its history of Scandinavian, German, and Irish immigrants) there is a long history of other religious traditions. In fact, Ashkenazi Jewish pioneers founded St. Paul’s first synagogue in 1856. Further, where else but in a state as diverse as Minnesota would you find such distinct types of public figures who once or still serve in offices at the state or national levels of government? Such a list includes VicePresident Hubert Humphrey, Skip Humphrey, Eugene McCarthy, Amy Klobuchar, VicePresident Walter Mondale, Mark Dayton, Paul Wellstone, Keith Ellison (the first Muslim ever elected to Congress), Rudy Boschwitz, Rudy Perpich, Jesse ‘The Body’ Ventura (former professional wrestler turned governor), and serving now at the same time, Congresswoman Michelle Bachman and Senator Al Franken (yes, of Saturday Night Live fame). Minnesota also boasts well-known musicians from over the years, including The Andrews

A Message from the President, cont.

attendance. Vice-President Don LaSalle will offer a brief prayer and we will sing a hymn, but seminars are encouraged to offer their own Friday Morning Prayer if they so choose. Our plenary speaker on Saturday January 3, will be the Rev. Dr. Hugh Page, Jr from the University of Notre Dame, speaking to us on ‘Biblical Laments, the Blues, and the Music of Prince.’ The recipient of the Berakah Award is Dr. Ruth Langer, whose response will be given at the closing Banquet on Saturday night. What a rich smorgasbord (a very Minnesota thing) of events! The 2015 meeting will officially close at the end of the banquet, with no breakfast or closing academy worship on Sunday morning. Those who have registered in advance and paid the $25 fee will leave promptly at 8 AM for Epiphany Mass at St. John’s Abbey in Collegeville. The cost for this optional excursion, partially underwritten by The Liturgical Press, includes bus fare and lunch. On return, the buses will stop at the Minneapolis–St. Paul Airport before returning to the Hyatt.

First, on Saturday at noon following the Plenary address, our colleague Ed Foley will host a sidebar luncheon for newer or ‘emerging’ members of the academy to network and discuss the field of liturgical studies, post-doctorates, publishing, and finding employment. (Thanks, Ed.) Second, be sure to visit the display of the work of two Minnesota liturgical architects and designers, Frank Kacmarcik, Obl SB and Edward Sovik by local committee member Carol Frenning of the Basilica of St. Mary in Minneapolis (another historic and active church well worth visiting). Third, The Liturgical Press invites everyone to their reception ‘The Bible and the Blues,’ featuring the St. John’s Bible, author recognition, and The Oblates of Blues band on Friday January 2 (our free night) beginning at 9:00 PM. The only question is whether Donald ‘Hound Dog’ Saliers will sit in with The Oblates of Blues for a couple of tunes. The music at this event will be loud! Finally, welcome again, dear friends and colleagues. I sincerely hope that this meeting will be of great benefit to all of us as scholars of worship. But even more, I pray that 2015 may be a year of peace in our world.

Let me draw your attention to a few other events and activities:

Emerging Critical Resources for Liturgical Studies Sharon Fennema

For 2015, our seminar will discuss the implications of the work of critical and postcolonial theorist Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak for liturgical studies. We will focus in particular on several essays from the book An Aesthetic Education in the Era of Globalization1 which participants will have read in advance, though visitors and guests are most welcome to participate regardless. Guided by papers given by seminar participants, we will investigate Spivak’s claim that aesthetic education is the last available instrument for implementing global justice in a way that resists the homogenizing and pacifying effects of globalization, and her emphasis on the ways in which performative aesthetics evoke critical thinking that exceeds the logic of capital, looking for points of fruitful dialogue with the study of liturgy and the different foci within the field that form the heart of our inquiries. The papers under discussion are circulated before the meeting and will not be presented as such, so please be sure to inquire with the convener to receive copies. 1 Cambridge: Harvard University Press, 2012

He has received numerous honors including a Presidential Award from the University of Notre Dame (2001).

Godfrey Diekmann Award

Virgilio Elizondo San Antonio, Texas

Professor of Pastoral and Hispanic Theology University of Notre Dame

Virgilio Elizondo is widely acclaimed as the founder of US Latino theology. In 1972 he established MACC, the most renowned theological think tank and training center for pastoral leaders among Mexican Americans and other Latinas and Latinos in the United States. He has lectured and taught throughout the Western hemisphere and on every continent. His honors include being named one of Time‘s spiritual innovators for the new millennium, six honorary doctorates, the Murray Award for outstanding theological contributions from the Catholic Theological Society of America, the Quasten Award for excellence and leadership in theological development from the Catholic University of America, the Humanitarian Award of the National Conference of Christians and Jews, and the Laetare Medal from the University of Notre Dame (the oldest and most prestigious award for American Catholics) given annually to an honoree whose life exemplifies a distinctively Catholic contribution to humanity. Virgilio’s colleagues in the Academy of Catholic Hispanic Theologians of the United States recognized him as the premier Latino theologian by founding the Elizondo Award, an annual prize given for ‘outstanding contributions to theology of and for US Hispanics.’ He has authored more than a dozen books and over a hundred articles. As rector of San Fernando Cathedral in San Antonio, Texas from 1983–95, he led the effort to revitalize it as a center of public ritual and traditions and inaugu-

35

rated the weekly bilingual Misa de las Americas televised to viewers throughout the United States and beyond. He joined the University of Notre Dame faculty in 1999, where he continues to teach as Professor of Pastoral and Hispanic Theology and Fellow of the Institute for Latino Studies. He currently serves as parochial vicar of St Rose of Lima parish in San Antonio. Virgilio has served on the editorial board of the Revista Latinoamericana de Teologia and participated prominently in the Ecumenical Association of Third World Theologians. From 1979–99 he also served on the editorial board of Concilium, an acclaimed publication that is arguably as much an international forum for theological and church reform as it is a theological journal. The most direct and persistent influence of Virgilio’s theological reflection, pastoral action, and activism has been in Hispanic ministry and theology. He was a catalyst for many changes in Hispanic ministry in the United States over the past four decades, particularly the prophetic insistence that church leaders respect Hispanic faith expressions and cultures. The distinguished founder of Latin American liberation theology, Gustavo Gutiérrez, attests that ‘the work of Virgilio Elizondo plays a foundational role’ in the development of US Hispanic theology, which ‘is watering with its spring other areas of the world of Latin origin.’


Berakah Award

Ruth Langer Boston, Massachusetts

Professor of Jewish Studies Boston College

Ruth Langer is Professor of Jewish Studies in the Theology Department at Boston College and Associate Director of its Center for Christian-Jewish Learning. She received her PhD in Jewish Liturgy in 1994 and her rabbinic ordination in 1986 from Hebrew Union College, Jewish Institute of Religion in Cincinnati. She is a graduate of Bryn Mawr College and a native of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. She writes and speaks in two major areas: the development of Jewish liturgy and ritual, and Christian-Jewish relations. Her newest book, Cursing the Christians?: A History of the Birkat HaMinim (Oxford University Press, December 2011) combines these two interests, tracing the history of a Jewish prayer that was, in its medieval forms, a curse of Christians. This volume traces the transformations in the text and the polemics around

36

it from its putative origins in the early rabbinic period, through its censorship by the church, to its modern transformations into an inoffensive prayer that asks God to rid our world of evil. She is also author of To Worship God Properly: Tensions between Liturgical Custom and Halakhah in Judaism (Hebrew Union College Press, 1988). This book examines the interplay between liturgical law and custom in the medieval world, investigating the tensions between rabbinic dictates and the actual practices and understandings of the community. She also co-edited Liturgy in the Life of the Synagogue (Eisenbrauns, 2005) and has published a long list of articles.
