LITURGY IN
MY LIFE
PART 1
LITURGY AS
PRAYER
The goal of liturgy
is not perfection
The goal of liturgy
is PRAYER
How do we get
to this goal

Liturgy
as a bridge between
the transcendent
and
the human
In a holy place we experience
THE HOLY
through
WORD
SONG
BREAD AND WINE
SILENCE
TOUCH
‘HOLY’ Things for
‘HOLY’ people
We are the
human hands
and feet of our God
The presence of Christ
is mediated through the
HUMAN
COMMUNITY
We come as individuals
We pray as a community
WHAT ONE BRINGS
ALL BRING
Liturgy
as the bridge between
the personal
and
the communal
Individualism
verses
Community
EUCHARIST
Celebration of the
unity of the
Father
and the Son
in the Holy Spirit
Christ calls us
to become one with him and
to thus share divine life
SENSE OF DIVINE
HOSPITALITY
MINISTRIES
call for a surrender of self
in order to experience
the Christ in each other
COMMUNITY
To be fully prepared to
experience Christ
PERSON
OF
PRAYER
Liturgy as a bridge
between
the sanctuary
and
the marketplace
Personally
take on the
self-effacing
LOVE OF
CHRIST
Participate in
MASS
Transformed to see the
world
in a
DIVINE WAY
Transformation
 Uncomfortable
 Give up wealth
 Risk job, esteem,
position or even life itself
 What else???????
To be like Christ
we must be willing
to identify
WITH HIS
DEATH
Bottom line
EUCHARISTIC
HOSPITALITY
is not
warm and fuzzy
EUCHARISTIC
HOSPITALITY
IS
SACRIFICIAL
AND
COSTLY
We have surrendered
ourselves not only to
Christ
We have also
surrendered ourselves
to the Community
What I do in life
is reflective of
what I do
at the
EUCHARIST
I am the Body of
Christ and I need to
participate in the
wonders of the
WORD PROCLAIMED
and the
WORD LIVED OUT
Liturgy
as a bridge between
the Past
and
the Future
The Constitution on the
Sacred Liturgy
Gave us the vision we are now
living out in our
liturgical and
personal lives.
We do not live in the past
However the past gives us
a vision for
the present
and the future
We gather as the early
Christians did to
TAKE
BLESS
EAT
We change because
we as humans
change
Do you do everything in life as you
did 5, 10, 20 years ago?
Will you do everything the same
next year as you do today?
Through everything we do we are
still connected to the past through
OUR PRESENT
AND FUTURE
EXPERIENCES
What are we doing in and
through the Liturgy?
How can the way we are
doing Liturgy be enhanced?
(Rev. Msgr. Kevin Irwin)
• All Liturgy is Pastoral
– Liturgy is always about and for the
people.
• All Liturgy is Personal
– Every act of liturgy is a personal
appropriation of what is celebrated.
• All Liturgy is Paschal
– Every enactment of the liturgy is the
actualization of the paschal mystery.
• All Liturgy Concerns Participation
– Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy states
that the full, conscious and active
participation in the liturgy is demanded
by the very nature of the liturgy itself---use
of all our senses.
• All Liturgy is done in and through
the power of the Holy Spirit
– Invocation of the Holy Spirit in Prayers
and especially the Eucharistic Prayers.
• All Liturgy Proclaims the Word of God
– Proclamation of the Scriptures at all
liturgical rites—we have received a
more generous share in the treasures
of the Bible at the liturgy.
• All Liturgy is Paradoxical
– Liturgy is about enabling us to view
the world through paradoxical lenses,
and it is about celebrating our faith’s
paradoxes in sacred signs, symbols,
words, and gestures.
So what about
our future and
the upcoming
changes?

How can I prepare for
these changes?
 Living the Liturgy ‘as a bridge’
 Being a person of prayer
 Living in the moment
 Letting God direct your life
We can remember Msgr. Irwin’s points
about celebrating Liturgy:
All Liturgy is Pastoral
All Liturgy is Personal
All Liturgy is Paschal
All Liturgy Concerns Participation
All Liturgy is done in and through
the power of the Holy Spirit
All Liturgy Proclaims the Word of
God
All Liturgy is Paradoxical
PART 3
WHAT ARE
THESE
CHANGES?
What are these changes?
 We have already experienced
some: Communion Rite, vessels,
preparation of the gifts, etc.
 New revisions will be mostly in
texts: prayers, responses, music
texts, etc.
 Nothing to worry about
• New USCCB Document
– Sing to the Lord: Music in Divine
Worship November 2007
•Guidelines provided to DIRECT those
preparing for the celebration of the
Sacred Liturgy according to the
current liturgical books (ordinary form
of celebration of the Eucharist)
• Singing together in church expresses
so well the sacramental presence of
God to his people
• Music is a sign of God’s love for us and
our love for him
• Very personal and yet it has a
communal dimension
• Faith grows when it is well expressed
in celebration
• Singing is one of the primary ways
that the faithful participates actively
in the Liturgy
• The primary role of music in the
Liturgy is to help the members of the
Assembly to join themselves to the
action of Christ and to give voice to the
gift of faith
• St. Augustine: “You should sing as
wayfarers do—sing but continue your
journey. Do not grow tried, but sing
with joy.”
• St. Augustine: “He who sings, prays
twice.”
SOME OF THE LANGUAGE
CHANGES
“The Lord be with you.”
“And also with you.” becomes
“And with your spirit.”
Act of Penitence
I confess to almighty God
and to you, my brothers and sisters,
that I have greatly sinned
in my thoughts and in my words,
in what I have done and in what I have
failed to do,
(And, striking their breast they say:)
Through my fault, through my fault,
Through my most grievous fault;
therefore I ask blessed Mary, everVirgin,
all the Angels and Saints,
and you, my brothers and sisters,
to pray for me to the Lord our God.
Priest:
May almighty God have mercy on us,
forgive us our sins,
and bring us to everlasting life.
The Gloria
Glory to God in the highest,
and on earth peace to people of good
will.
We praise you.
we bless you,
we adore you
we glorify you
we give you thanks for your great
glory,
Lord God, heavenly King,
O God, almighty Father.
Lord Jesus Christ, Only Begotten Son,
Lord God, Lamb of God, Son of the
Father,
you take away the sins of the world,
have mercy on us;
you take away the sins of the world,
receive our prayer;
you are seated at the right hand of the
Father,
have mercy on us.
For you alone are the Holy One,
you alone are the Lord,
you alone are the Most High,
Jesus Christ,
with the Holy Spirit,
in the glory of God the Father.
Amen.
Profession of Faith
I believe in one God,
the Father almighty,
maker of heaven and earth,
of all things visible and invisible.
I believe in one Lord Jesus Christ,
the Only Begotten Son of God,
born of the Father before all ages.
God from God, Light from Light,
true God from true God,
begotten, not made, consubstantial with the
Father;
through him all things were made.
For us men and for our salvation
he came down from heaven,
(at the word that follow up to and including and
became man, all bow)
and by the Holy Spirit was incarnate
of the Virgin Mary,
and became man.
For our sake he was crucified under
Pontius Pilate,
he suffered death and was buried,
and rose again on the third day
in accordance with the Scriptures.
He ascended into heaven
and is seated at the right hand of the
Father.
He will come again in glory
to judge the living and the dead
and his kingdom will have no end.
I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the
giver of life,
who proceeds from the Father and the Son,
who with the Father and the Son is
adored and glorified,
who has spoken through the prophets.
I believe in one, holy, catholic, and apostolic
Church.
I confess one baptism for the forgiveness of
sins
and I look forward to the resurrection of
the dead
and the life of the world to come. Amen.
Response at the Preparation of the
Gifts
May the Lord accept the sacrifice at
your hands
for the praise and glory of his name,
for our good
and the good of his holy Church.
Preface Dialogue
Priest: Let us give thanks to the Lord
our God.
People: It is right and just.
Holy, Holy
Holy, Holy, Holy Lord God of
hosts.
Heaven and earth are full of
your glory.
Hosanna in the highest.
Blessed is he who comes in the
name of the Lord.
Hosanna in the highest.
Sample wording of the Eucharistic
Prayer
On the day before he was to suffer he took
bread in his holy and venerable hands, and
with eyes raised to heaven to you, O God, his
almighty Father, giving you thanks he said
the blessing, broke the bread and gave it to
his disciples, saying:
TAKE THIS, ALL OF YOU, AND EAT
OF IT, FOR THIS IS MY BODY,
WHICH WILL BE GIVEN UP FOR
YOU.
In a similar way, when supper was ended,
he took this precious chalice in his holy and
venerable hands, and once more giving you
thanks, he said the blessing and gave the
chalice to his disciples, saying:
TAKE THIS, ALL OF YOU AND DRINK
FROM IT, FOR THIS IS THE
CHALICE OF MY BLOOD, THE
BLOOD OF THE NEW AND ETERNAL
COVENANT, WHICH WILL BE
POURED OUT FOR YOU AND FOR
MANY FOR THE FORGIVENESS OF
SINS. DO THIS IN MEMORY OF ME.”
Mystery of Faith
Priest: The Mystery of Faith.
People:
We proclaim your Death, O Lord,
and profess your Resurrection
until you come again.
When we eat this Bread and drink this Cup,
we proclaim your Death, O Lord,
until you come again.
Save us, Savior of the world,
for by your Cross and Resurrection
you have set us free.
Through him, and with him, and
in him,
O God, almighty Father,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
all glory and honor is yours,
for ever and ever. Amen.
At the Savior’s command
and formed by divine teaching,
we dare to say: Our Father……
Deliver us, Lord, we pray, from every
evil,
graciously grant peace in our days,
that, by the help of your mercy,
we may be always free from sin
and safe from all distress,
as we await the blessed hope
and the coming of our Savior, Jesus
Christ.
Lord Jesus Christ,
who said to your Apostles,
Peace I leave you, my peace I give you,
look not on our sins,
but on the faith of your Church,
and graciously grant her peace and
unity
in accordance with your will.
Who live and reign for ever and ever.
Amen.
Invitation to Holy Communion
Priest:
Behold the Lamb of God
behold him who takes away the
sins of the world.
Blessed are those called to the
supper of the Lamb.
People:
Lord, I am not worthy
that you should enter under
my roof,
but only say the word and my
soul shall be healed.
Dismissal
Go forth, the Mass is ended.
Go and announce the Gospel of the
Lord.
Go in peace, glorifying the Lord by
your life.
Go in peace.
What is the Church calling
me to do in preparation?

 Share hospitality
 Be faithful Ministers
 Love your Community
How can I prepare for
these changes?
 Living the Liturgy ‘as a bridge’
 Being a person of prayer
