The liturgy is the moment of unity between all of creation throughout all the ages – the point where past and future all come together into the present.

Description

The Liturgy brings God, humanity and the world together, it’s a mini incarnation, an incarnation of sound, smell, taste and touch. Salvation in the Orthodox church comes through union and intimacy with God, finding its greatest expression in the liturgy. The Eucharist is the moment of unity between all of creation throughout all the ages – the point where past and future all come together into the present. The instant where heaven and earth are one – when God wraps His outstretched arms around His children who are seeking His embrace.

Sometimes the liturgy can get a bit confusing… even boring. We ask why this is the case and we often hear the same answer “You don’t understand, when you understand then you will love it.” The point of this book isn’t to try and capture all the detailed descriptions and contemplations on the entire liturgy. If we tried to do that we could probably fill an entire library. Instead, the purpose of this book is to help those of us who sometimes struggle to connect with God and one another through the Eucharist; to share just a few gems from the many that the liturgy has to offer. These gems will help us to understand why this sacrament is interesting to some people and what I am missing out on by not understanding it.

This book is a great resource for your Sunday school class to help them understand and start to interact with the liturgy. It is a great read for individuals or as a resource for class discussion. It is full of illustrations, fun facts and sayings of the church fathers to help teens understand and enjoy the liturgy.

    Amazing book, the book really gives you an appreciation for the liturgy and answers questions that everyone has always had at the back of their minds like, why do we use wine in the mass?

    Purchased this book for my high school Sunday school class, I personally learnt a lot from it. Teaches a lot about the liturgy in a great and simple way. It’s a great guide for any age, not just teens. I highly recommend this book.
    God bless

    This is a great book. It helps me, as a Catholic, understand more why and how Coptic Christians celebrate Mass. The Catholic Church includes Eastern Catholics as well as Western (or Roman) Catholics so this book deepens my understanding of both my Orthodox and my Eastern Catholic brothers and sisters in Christ. Any book that makes you think about and reflect the Mass is a blessing. Next time I go to Mass I will be thinking about what I learned from Meena Awad, and it will make my Catholic Mass a deeper and spiritually richer experience. Thanks Meena!
