On Liturgy Maddie COOK

What is liturgy?

The word liturgy comes from a Greek term meaning “public work or work done on behalf of the people.” Liturgy refers to an organized community. Liturgy is centered on the Holy Trinity.

Mass as sacrifice

The Eucharist is the true sacrifice during mass. At the Last Supper, Jesus offers his body to us.

Community and Liturgy

The benefit of liturgical participation in the sacrifice of Christ is magnified if the community prays in community.

Liturgical Diversity in the Church

The diverse liturgical traditions have arisen by very reason of the Church's mission. Churches of the same geographical and cultural area came to celebrate the mystery of Christ through particular expressions characterized by the culture.

How the Liturgy is both unified and diverse in the Church?

The cultural and ethnic diversity of those assembled for Eucharistic celebrations should be reflected throughout the celebration in the choice of gestures, postures, vesture and environmental design. By the Eucharistic celebration we already unite ourselves with the heavenly liturgy and anticipate eternal life, when God will be all in all.
