Praise for John Baldovin, S.J.

“Fr. John Baldovin, SJ, is a first-rate liturgical scholar and an excellent teacher… As a committed Vatican II Catholic with an ecumenical sensitivity, there is no one better than he to lead us through and into the Eucharistic source and summit of the Christian Faith.” –The Rev. Maxwell E. Johnson, PhD., University of Notre Dame

“With a keen grasp of liturgical history and a profound love for the Church, Fr. John Baldovin’s scholarly work and masterful teaching faithfully address some of the more contested ecclesial issues of our time and open up the iconic depths of worship ‘in spirit and in truth’ for a contemporary age.” –Fr. Paul A. Janowiak, S.J., Jesuit School of Theology of Santa Clara (Berkeley)
