Liturgy and Laity is a prayer book designed to help average Catholics share deeply in the Church’s rich, liturgical life. Ideal for personal and liturgical use, the first part offers a series of reflections on the doctrines of the Liturgy as outlined in the Constitution on the Liturgy. The second part presents a series of prayer exercises known as Bible Vigils, which are meant to increase our knowledge and love of the Word of God. They were selected and designed to prepare us for the Mass and to foster a continual renewal of the action of the Holy Spirit in our lives and in the Church.
Liturgy and Laity is a complete guide to the liturgy of the Church offering both the theological basis of the liturgy as well as liturgical devotions, including:
• How each of us becomes united with the Mystical Body of Christ through the Mass (p. 57)
• A comprehensive guide to the Liturgical Year and its major feast days (p. 85)
• The salvific nature of the Sacraments and their relation to the Liturgy (p. 127)
• Bible Vigils for more than thirty feasts and sacraments including Baptism, Saint Joseph the Worker, All Souls Day, Our Lady of Guadalupe
This book is perfect for use in group prayer among the family, study groups, and parish life.
