What is
LITURGY?
SACROSANCTUM CONCILIUM
Constitution on Sacred Liturgy
December 4, 1963
Vatican II
1962-1965
The liturgy is considered as an exercise of
the priestly office of Jesus Christ. In the
liturgy, by means of signs perceptible to
the senses, human sanctification is
signified and brought about in ways
proper to each of these signs; in the
liturgy the whole public worship is
performed by the Mystical Body of Jesus
Christ, that is, by the Head and his
members.

In the earthly liturgy we take part in a foretaste
of that heavenly liturgy which is celebrated in the
holy city of Jerusalem toward which we journey as
pilgrims, where Christ is sitting at the right hand
of God.

to produce its full effects, it is necessary that the
faithful come to it with proper dispositions, that
their minds should be attuned to their voices, and
that they should cooperate with divine grace lest
they receive it in vain

which the activity of the Church is directed;
at the same time it is the font from which all

PARTICIPATION

SC 14
Mother Church earnestly desires that
all the faithful should be led to that fully
conscious, and active participation in
liturgical celebrations which is demanded
by the very nature of the liturgy. Such
participation by the Christian people as
"a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy
nation, a redeemed people is their right
and duty by reason of their baptism.
