The flowers in the Liturgy

Like music, song, light, word, gesture, perfume, dance, the beauty of linen and silk, architecture and painting, flowers are a language capable of introducing the experience of God and proclaiming the Mystery. They are present in the liturgy for a humble service: to prepare the environment where God meets his people, his bride, a "nuptial", "covenant" meeting, which must be marked by sober and elegant beauty, celebration and gratuitousness.

To whom the course is addressed

The course is addressed to sacristi, custodians of churches and chapels and to all those, men and women, who, with generosity, wish to begin to place themselves at the service of the liturgy through floral art, but also to those who are already engaged in this activity, wants to deepen its technical and liturgical knowledge.
The lessons are held at the Meeting Room of the Pontifical Athenaeum S. Anselmo on Friday from 15:00 to 18:00.
