The importance of Liturgy in Christian Life  

Posted by Heisan in , , ,

I been reading the documents of Vatican II now a days and in the introduction on the Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy it says;
" For it is the liturgy through which, especially in the divine sacrifice of the Eucharist, "the works of our redemption is accomplished," and it is through the liturgy, especially, that the faithful are enabled to express in their lives and manifest to others the mystery of Christ and the real nature of the true Church." Indeed the liturgy, especially the Eucharistic sacrifice enables us to participate in the life of Christ and His Church for it is the way to fully express our belief and added to that it must transcend beyond the confines of the church building it must flow through in our daily activities. Liturgy does not end in the celebration of it but it continues even when we are doing our menial task and duties in life. Lately did I know the full meaning of what I am celebrating in the liturgy but I am very much grateful to God for giving me His Church where I can fully unite with Him in the daily celebration of the Sacred Liturgy. Liturgy is what makes me respond to the call of worshiping the Lord daily, hourly and the whole of the year.
