Pope Francis encourages Catholics to deepen their understanding and love of the liturgy through continuing formation, stating that ‘liturgy is a life that forms, not an idea to be learnt’. The National Biennial Liturgy Conference will offer such formation, in line with Plenary Council discernment, with an aptly titled theme of ‘Liturgy: Forming a Prayerful and Eucharistic Church’.
There is a certain comfort in the familiarity of the structure of our Mass. It is pretty much the same regardless of where Mass is celebrated. We are one holy, catholic and apostolic church and our Missal embodies this unity.
