WHAT IS LITURGY?

Liturgy is a form of public religious worship, such as mass in the Catholic Church. It comes from a Greek word meaning "public work"; it is an organized community event.

THE MASS AS SACRIFICE

The most important part of mass is the Eucharist, which represents the ultimate Sacrifice by Christ's Real Presence of the Body and Blood. The mass as sacrifice is evident in the Eucharist, Christ's death for the sins of mankind.

COMMUNITY AND LITURGY

The liturgy is a community celebration for Jesus Christ and his sacrifice. Liturgy cannot be celebrated with a community or parish of Christians, because we are all dependent on each other to grow in faith.

LITURGICAL DIVERSITY IN THE CHURCH

All liturgies in the Catholic Church are focused on one Pascal Mystery, one Trinity, and one Apostolic Faith. All liturgy are one, but are celebrated in diverse ways. Liturgical celebrations are all diverse in terms of surrounding culture, location, etc

The liturgy is both diverse and unified because, through all our differences and individuality, we are united by one faith and one Church.
