The liturgy, the crucible of love

by Fr. Blake

Lumen de lumine, 2009. Fr. Lawrence Lew, OP.


“Liturgical manuals are full of very specific instructions, and vergers with their maces can cast stern looks. Yet the task for us fallible humans is not simply to “get it right” but to move in such a way that puts us at the disposal of the Holy Spirit: to be aware of our own need for grace, to be aware of the location and intentions of our neighbors, and to surrender our egos, so that all might be offered to the glory of God.”

A recent post of mine for The Living Church’s blog, on praying during the liturgy.
