Liturgy Is To Help People Pray

The changes.

Participants at Mass claimed it was the changes that they didn't like.

It is legitimate.

Less reverence is what people can't accept.

A sense of the holy has to be present before, during, and after Mass.  At home, work, school, in the parking lot leaving Mass, and more.

Reverence includes respect, a Latin word, for "hope."

Awe and affection is also part of reverence and respect at Mass.

Those who lead liturgy need to have appreciation for this expressed need of the worshipers.

After all, this is the people's prayer at work.

Silence is also prayer.  It speaks volumes quietly!

Space for silence is key at Mass. 

Silence prepares people for the proclamation of the Word of God, and Eucharist.

It does.

Next Wednesday, July 17, 2013 at 7 pm in Big Jack's Bar-B-Q Grille, in Roseville, MI., Dan McAfee of the Worship Office of the Archdiocese of Detroit, MI., will address, "Serving Supper Well: The General Instructions of the Roman Missal." 

About twenty people have indicated their interest in attending.

The revised instructions after months of implementation now will be discussed.

I bet reverence will emerge.  It's key to communicating, isn't it?

Prayer is like that, no?

Respect, awe, and affection.

They're all part of reverence at Mass.
