The Meaning of Liturgy
The Liturgial Institute within the University of St Mary of the Lake in Chicago produced the Elements of the Catholic Mass about three years ago. It is a great series for Liturgy 101. This 3 minute film could be a great way to begin formation with a new liturgy planning team.
The liturgy is the summit toward which the activity of the Church is directed; at the same time it is the font from which all her power flows... [the baptised] should come together to praise God in the midst of His Church, to take part in the sacrifice, and to eat the Lord's supper.
