I have a new article up at Our Sunday Visitor’s SimplyCatholic.com: Prayer as Liturgy.
A few highlights:
Liturgy, which includes but is not limited to the Holy Mass, is considered “formal” prayer because it follows a certain pattern, or rubric. Liturgical prayer is also “common” prayer, meant to be prayed by the community as a group.
The liturgy of the Church includes the Mass, the Liturgy of the Hours, and the celebrations of the sacraments.
Liturgical prayer invites us to engage in praise, blessing and adoration, thanksgiving, petition and intercession as a community.
Read the whole thing: Prayer as Liturgy.
This is the second in a series of eight articles on prayer. A new one will be published each Tuesday at SimplyCatholic.com.
