Sacraments and Liturgy
“When celebrating Sacraments and Liturgy on earth we participate, by way of a foretaste, in the celestial Liturgy which is celebrated in the holy city of Jerusalem toward which we, as travelers, are striving.” (Sacrosanctum Concilium 8).
The Eucharist and the sacrament of Reconciliation strengthen our daily path of holiness and accompany us in our life of faith, hope, and charity. The seven sacraments are privileges and channels of divine grace.
The Celebration of the Liturgy Unites Us to Heaven’s praise
The Community strives to be one body and one soul, thus expressing the unity of the People of God through communal prayer and liturgy. From this source, it draws its strength for the practice of charity.
Inspired by the witness of the first Christians who “devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers” (Ac 2:42), the Community stresses the importance on Liturgy. Liturgy – as an outpouring of the sacred into time and space – will allow us to participate in the eternity and the infinity of God, in anticipation of the coming of the Kingdom. (Book of Life, no. 51)
