(p.162) Chapter 6 Worship and Devotion
Latino Catholicism

Timothy Matovina

Princeton University Press

This chapter talks about how an insufficient number of clergy and liturgical leaders who actively promote Latinos' Good Friday, Marian, and other religious traditions keep Hispanic impact on communal prayer in U.S. parishes and their environs from becoming even greater, despite the fact that the geographic dispersion of the Hispanic population over the past two decades has expanded Latino influence. Even conflicts and debates about Hispanic traditions and liturgical participation reveal that Latinos shape parish worship and public ritual in significant ways. Hispanics' ritual and devotional proclivities and their promotion of a liturgical renewal that engages their faith expressions currently comprise one of the fundamental dynamics in the prayer life of numerous Catholic parishes in the United States.
