Essentially, all liturgy is about the enactment of
the paschal Mystery in and among the
community that is the Church. God invites and
we respond.

The Gathering Rite actually begins in the

Liturgy calls for changes in our lives and
attitudes in life. We gather at God’s initiative,
we enact the sacred mysteries at his initiative,
and are sent forth by him from the gathered
assembly to continue our mission in the world.

Mass. In Greek, the Church's first official language, "Lord,

This joyful prayer - The Gloria - is really a song of
praise, a "canticle". The earliest Christians copied
the Jewish practice of singing canticles based on
Scripture during their liturgy.

In this tradition, early Christian Communities
created their own songs of praise. The Gloria - in
the very same words we use today - is found in
Christian prayerbooks as early as the year 380! At
first, it was sung only on special feasts, but later it
was included in every Sunday celebration.

Liturgy of the Word
Its Function in the Liturgy?
Liturgy of the Word
      Its Function in the Liturgy?


The Word challenges us to evaluate our lives
before God and invite God to act among us in
new ways. The Christian faith is so often about
paradoxes (death giving way to life, suffering
leading to glory); the challenge is to welcome
these paradoxes into our lives and to celebrate
them. (Dies Domini, no. 41)
Next Week...

Session 2: We Pray...

The Gloria - in the very same words we use today - is found in Christian prayerbooks as early as the year 380! At first, it was sung only on special feasts, but later it was included in every Sunday celebration.
