Why Not? is a selection of Turlough Baxter’s eponymous columns on the subject of liturgy which have appeared monthly in Intercom magazine for some twelve years. These short pieces, widely admired by clergy and non-clergy alike, offer refreshing insights into the celebration of the Eucharist, with a particular emphasis on seasons and sacraments.
Why Not? reminds readers that liturgy is an expression of our common faith and an entry point into the faith tradition that has been gifted to us; while the liturgist is the artist who shares the wonders of the liturgy with a worshipping people.
Turlough Baxter is a graduate of the National Centre for Liturgy and a priest of the Diocese of Ardagh and Clonmacnois. He is a member of the Advisory Committee on Sacred Art and Architecture and former chairperson of the Irish Church Music Association.
