Key Moments in the Liturgy

In the Second Vatican Council’s Constitution “On the Sacred Liturgy,” Sacrosanctum concilium, we read:
“. . . the liturgy is the summit toward which the activity of the Church is directed; at the same time it is the font from which all her power flows” (10). This workshop is a journey toward that “summit.” In it we will walk through four of the most significant moments in the Mass, pausing to reflect on them and to delve into the Scripture passages to which they’re connected, as well as to explore the connections between these moments and the mysteries of Christ’s Life. The mystagogical catechesis presented in this workshop — a catechesis taking us into the mysteries of Christ — is, in a special way, for those who catechize children, but it is also adaptable to other audiences. Ultimately, the workshop is meant to help any of us who form others deepen in our appreciation for the most holy Mass and be spiritually enriched, ourselves, so that we can pass on our love for and understanding of the liturgy to others.
