The Liturgy – The Work Of The Blessed Trinity

With the liturgy the Father pours out and fills us with his blessings in the Word made flesh – His Son Jesus Christ – who died and then rose victorious from the grave for us and pours into our hearts the Holy Spirit.  At the same time, the Church blesses the Father by her worship, her praise, and thanksgiving and also asks him for the gift of his Son and also the Holy Spirit.

In the liturgy of the Catholic Church, it is his very own paschal mystery that Christ symbolizes and makes present. By giving the Holy Spirit to his apostles, he entrusted to them and also their successors, the power to make present the work of salvation with the Eucharistic sacrifice and also the rites, where he himself acts to communicate his grace to the faithful of all times and also locations throughout the globe.

The really closest collaboration is at work in the celebration of the liturgy in between the Holy Spirit and the Catholic Church. The Holy Spirit prepares the Church to encounter her Lord. He remembers as well as materializes Christ to the faith of the faithful gathered. He makes the mystery of Christ really present. He unifies the Church to the life and objective of Christ and makes the gift of communion flourish in the Church.
