For your contemplation: “Liturgy is a work in which the Church collaborates with the divine Redeemer, renewing on her altars the sacred mysteries which are the life and salvation of mankind, uttering again the life-giving words that are capable of saving and transforming our souls, blessing again the sick and the possessed, and preaching His Gospel to the poor. In the liturgy, then, the Church would have us realize that we meet the same Christ who went about everywhere doing good, and who is still present in the midst of us wherever two or three are gathered together in His name. And we meet Him by sharing in His life and His redemption. We meet Christ in order to be Christ and, with Him, save the world.” Thomas Merton
