Worship is our way of relating to God as individuals and as a community. There are times when we pray privately, and there are times when we pray as a Church in the name of Christ. This prayer of the Church is called liturgy. The word liturgy means the "people’s work." In the Church, this expression has come to mean the work of God’s people as they worship. In liturgy we ritualize or symbolize the great events of Jesus’ life, bringing these events into the present, and powerfully linking them with our daily lives. When we come together as a community of faith to celebrate the Paschal Mystery of Christ’s death and resurrection, it is through the grace of the Holy Spirit that we are renewed in faith. God speaks to us in the scripture readings. We speak to him through our prayers, responses, hymns and active participation in the Mass. The Eucharistic celebration is a sacrament of love. Holy Communion is the Bread of Life that nourishes our souls and fills us with grace. In all of this, the liturgy embraces our celebration of Mass and the sacraments, the Liturgy of the Hours, and the liturgical year, music and art.
