From Hallowed Ground
What is liturgy?
Jeff Culbreath descrambles and refutes a mainstream RC parish website
Christ's name is not mentioned even once. The sole justification for Christian liturgy - giving to Almighty God the worship owed to Him - is entirely omitted. And of course there is nothing about the central themes of the Catholic liturgy: sacrifice, reparation, or mankind's need of redemption.
All that’s missing from this is that God doesn’t need the worship owed him — giving it to him is for our benefit: Suscipiat Dominus sacrificium de manibus tuis, ad laudem et gloriam nominis sui, ad utilitatem quoque nostram totiusque Ecclesiæ suæ sanctæ.
