What is Liturgy?

Liturgy is the collection official services carried out by a Catholic Church, including prayers, the sacraments, and various rites. The collective use of these services, which occurr in a Church at public setting, is the liturgy.

Mass as a Sacrifice

The Catholic Mass truly remembers Jesus' sacrifice. At the Last Supper, Jesus handed his body and blood to his apostles and said "Do this, for the remembrance of me." This shows how Jesus sacrificed himself, to be able to give us his body and blood, which truly gives us life.

This shows a community coming together for the liturgy

Community and Liturgy The Liturgy of a community brings it together. Through the loving aspects of the liturgy, the people that we constantly interact with in our community are drawn together. Each community makes its own impact on their liturgy.

This photo grid shows the various liturgies around the world. They are all Catholic, but their community adds their own diversity.

Liturgical Diversity in the Church Although the Church is united and one, Catholic communities have slightly different liturgies, where, for example, different Rites are used. The Catholic communities around the world, with the love between them and the devotion to Jesus Christ, brings the liturgies together.

Just like the diversity of the Church strengthens it, the diversity of the Liturgy strengthens it too. Catholic Liturgy across the world conforms to Catholic Doctrine, takes the sacraments, loves God and their neighbor, follows apostolic succession, and recognizes the mass as a sacrifice. Yet, these the Liturgy is diverse around the world in its Rites prayers, and timing of services.
