WHAT IS LITURGY
Liturgy is public worship – the work of Christ and that of the Church, the Body of Christ. By virtue of our participation in Christ’s work as members of the Body, we also participate in the divine life of the Trinity, an eternal exchange of love between the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
As Part of the Body of Christ we are called to serve in community and within the Liturgy, as we do the work of Christ for the people and through the people.
Also we are called to worship. WHAT IS WORSHIP
“Worship is the rendering to God what is owed God by intelligent beings” (Virgil Michel, OSB). Human beings are made for love and communion with God. “God, infinitely perfect and blessed in himself, in a plan of sheer goodness freely created man to make him share in his own blessed life. For this reason, at every time and in every place, God draws close to man. He calls man to seek him, to know him, to love him with all his strength” (CCC 1). Because we know that the greatest act of love is a sacrifice – to lay down one’s life (John 15:13) – in worship we offer a sacrifice of praise and give everything we have to God. Worship can be both public (liturgy) and private (devotional, both individual and communal). Both are integral to a healthy and vibrant spiritual life.
