We invite you to follow along with us as we prepare each week to celebrate the liturgy of the Church, the Holy Mass, in which all faithful are invited to fully experience the love of Christ. Preparing for the Liturgy by studying and discussing the Readings, Psalms, Collects, and Gospel helps us to prepare our hearts to receive our Lord in the Most Holy Sacrament of the Altar, the Holy Eucharist. As we enter more deeply into the liturgy, let us consider how we are to live our lives more fully in union with the Holy Trinity and allow our actions to be directed by the inspiration to be Christ’s light in the world.
