CAN I TEACH?
Lord, as servants of Christ, we are required
to give back. In my small way, let me prove
myself faithful to You by being a catechist
and teaching our children your ways.
PLEASE CALL WENDY IF YOU CAN HELP THIS SUMMER, 231-1340.
What is liturgy?
Liturgy is the official divine worship of the Church.
A Liturgy is not an event that depends on good ideas and great songs. No one makes or invents a liturgy. It is something living that grew over millennia of faith. A Mass is a holy, venerable action. Liturgy becomes exciting when one senses that God himself is present under its sacred signs and its precious, often ancient prayers.
Why does the liturgy have priority in the life of the Church and of the individual?
"The liturgy is the summit toward which the activity of the Church is directed; it is also the font from which all her power flows" (Second Vatican Council, Sacrosanctum concilium 10).
During Jesus' lifetime, multitudes of people flocked to him, because they were seeking his healing presence. Even today we can find him, for he lives in his Church. He assures us of his presence in two places: in service to the poor and in the Eucharist. There we run directly into his arms. And when we let him get close to us, he teaches us, feeds us, transforms us, heals us, and becomes one with us in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. (YOUCAT questions 167-168)

OF THE GOSPEL
"The joy of the gospel" ~Pope Francis "Whenever our interior life becomes caught up in its own interests and concerns, there is no longer room for others.
God’s voice is no longer heard, the quiet joy of his love is no longer felt, and the desire to do good fades". ~Pope Francis
