As the title suggests, the book is not a systematic treatment of the liturgy but a collection of questions and answers organized according to category. Monsignor Elliot addresses queries about almost every aspect of the liturgy: from Mass ad orientem to liturgical dance, from concelebration to funerals.
Liturgical Question Box : Peter J. Elliott :
Indeed, most of them are: Should we hold hands during the Our Father? Should the chalice veil be used? The reader may find himself nodding in agreement with many questions: Yeah, I wondered about that. But only in our present situation could some of the questions be considered common: Can a priest omit the Creed during Sunday Mass?
Should the Precious Blood be poured down the sink after Mass? What should we do when we find consecrated hosts in the hymnals and pews?
That these and other such questions should even arise indicates how desolate is the liturgical landscape. As for the answers, Monsignor Elliot provides instructions always with citations , advice, warnings, and humor.
To each question he gives a good, thoughtful reflection on and explanation of the issue at hand. He does not discuss rubrics alone. He not only says what must be done; but also what is the best thing to be done.
Monsignor Elliot is at his best, however, when he addresses the hot-button issues: Is liturgical dance permitted? Must a pastor permit altar girls?

Must a priest celebrate Mass facing toward the people, or may he celebrate ad orientem , facing with the people? May a priest celebrate Mass alone?
Liturgical Translation: A Question of Truth
Monsignor Elliot avoids both trendy and superficial answers. Realizing that one must not only know the correct answer but also know why it is correct, he takes the time to explain at length the historical, theological, and pastoral factors involved.

The appearance of first Ceremonies, and now Liturgical Question Box , indicates a growing desire for uniform and correct worship. Why all this attention to details? Of course. But love seeks to express itself in definite forms and manners. In our human relationships there is a proper and improper way to demonstrate and express love: although he loves them both, a man kisses his wife but not his secretary.
So also, in our relationship with Christ and His Church, we must seek to express our love properly. Much as a nervous girl might ask how to conduct herself with the boy of her dreams, so we ask ourselves how we are to show our love for Christ in the liturgy.
