On Liturgy By Anna Swadener per. C 2/28/17

What is Liturgy?

Liturgy is a form of public religious worship, especially Christian worship. The word liturgy comes from a Greek term meaning “public work or work done on behalf of the people.” The liturgical celebration is an action of Christ. During this celebration, we participate in the Paschal Mystery.

Mass as Sacrafice

The Eucharist is a true sacrifice. The Christians knew that it was a sacrifice and proclaimed this in their writings. During the Last Supper, the Lord said to his disciples,, "Do this in memory of me."

Community and Liturgy

Worship happens when we respond to God's grace together. Liturgy is about coming together to learn about the Lord. It is an organized way to His response.

Liturgical Diversity in the Church

Through our diverse liturgical expressions, we are still united by the Holy Spirit. We profess a Church that is one, holy, catholic, and apostolic. There are many diverse traditions that come from the Church's mission. The church gives the liturgical expression to the mystery of Christ according to the different and diverse cultures.

How is Liturgy unified and diverse in the Church?

The Liturgy of the Church is both unified and diverse because it is a universal worship and the public work of the people. But the Liturgy is also diverse because there are many cultures inside the church.
