Inspiration For the Committee:
“The liturgy is the summit toward which the activity of the church is directed; at the sametime it is the fount from which all the church’s power flows.”Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy (CSL), 10
“The church earnestly desires that all the faithful be led to that full, conscious and active participation in liturgical celebrations called for by the very nature of liturgy. Such participation by the Christian people as a ‘chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation,God’s own people’ (1 Peter 2:9) is the right and duty by reason of their baptism.” CSL, 14“
The parishes, set up locally under a pastor taking the place of the bishop, are most important: in some manner they represent the visible Church established throughout the world. Therefore, both in attitude and in practice, the liturgical life of the parish and its relationship to the bishop must be fostered among the faithful and clergy; efforts must also be made toward a lively sense of community within the parish, above all in the shared celebration of the Sunday Mass.” CSL, 42
