Title: Catholic Worship and the Liturgical Year


1
Catholic Worship and the Liturgical Year
2
Worship Liturgy
  • Our fundamental duty as people is to direct the
    whole of our life and activity toward God as
    Creator and Savior.

3
Worship Liturgy
  • The word 'liturgy' comes from the Greek
    leitourgia, means the work of the people.
  • It refers to the official public worship of the
    Church.

4
Liturgy
  • is the public worship by the Mystical Body of
    Christ, of both its Head (Christ) and its
    members.
  • it is always God-centered and God directed.
    (focus about God and for God)
  • seeks to bring about an encounter between
    worshippers and the saving mystery.

5
In Liturgy the Past Becomes Present
  • Although liturgy is concerned with past events,
    the historical saving work of Christ, it is not
    concerned with them as past, but experienced as
    present.
  • By the mystery of liturgy we are making past
    events present so that the saving power of Christ
    can be made present to the worshipper in the here
    and now.

6
Liturgy includes
  • the spoken word, music, gestures, movements and
    actions, and symbolic and material things.

7
Liturgical CyCle
  • The readings used in Sunday liturgies follow a 3
    year rotation.
  • Year A Gospel of Matthew
  • Year B - Gospel of Mark
  • Year C - Gospel of Luke
  • Readings from the Gospel of John are spread out
    in each year.

8
The Church Year
  • The Second Vatican Council called us to recognize
    that the saving work of Jesus Christ is
    commemorated "on certain days throughout the
    course of the year."
  •  

9
The Church Year
  • Once each week the Church keeps the memory
    of the Lord's resurrection. She also celebrates
    it once a year, together with his blessed
    passion, at Easter, that most solemn of all
    feasts. SC, 102
