There is a Place…

in, through, and beyond the rubrics of the Liturgy where its meaning, its spirit, is present. It’s good to know where to stand, how to move, and what to say. But to what end? It is indeed possible to serve the Liturgy with complete perfection of motion, to say all the right words in all the right places and still miss the joy, the transcendence, the moments of God’s presence. For these one needs eyes to see, a heart that listens for the voice of the Shepherd, and a love for the One for whom the Liturgy exists. To know this is, in part, why we set out on the beautiful path.
