Indifference is not characteristic of the liturgy

So, our Lenten journey begins again, and we welcome it, for we know that it always leads to glad Easter, just as we know that the Passion of our Lord led to his resurrection, and to our blessed status as the children of God. Lent means so much more to us when we are able to observe it according to good liturgical practice, for what the liturgy does is bring us Christ’s mercy in a way that is consistent with its beauty. We don’t want cheap imitations, or the latest gimmicks, and we don’t much care for the passing fads of Praise Songs that come and go, driven by the ‘Christian’ market. We need Christ, and his rich and marvelous mercy is made plain to us in a vivid way during Lent; that is, if we are privileged to have the liturgy with which to worship.

Gottesdienst exists to promote that liturgy, as you know. That’s why we keep asking for your support. What donations do is keep the prices low and what that does, of course, is enable the journal to be read by more people. The more readers, the more influence; the more influence, the more education about why the liturgy matters; and the more of that, well, the more people will come to agree, and the Church will benefit.

$50 or more gets you a free gift: choose from our books or our DVD.
