What is liturgy?
Liturgy literally means "the work of the people" and translated idiomatically as "public service". Technically speaking, liturgy is a subset of ritual. When ritual is undertaken to participate in a divine act or assist a divine action, it is liturgy.
LituRgy and community
Our own sense of who and what we are is based upon the relationships we have with others. Liturgical activity is an act of love, in which we participate in the sacrifice made by Christ for all humanity.
Mass as a service
It is our duty or service as a practicing Catholic or Christian to go to mass as often as we can and celebrate the lord and all that he has done for us. As Christians it is our moral obligation to praise him and all deeds he has done for us.
Liturgical diversity in the church
“The mystery celebrated in the liturgy is one, but the forms of its celebration are diverse,” the Catechism states. The mystery of Christ is so unfathomably rich, according to Church teaching, that it cannot be exhausted by its expression in any single liturgical tradition.
