A Pastoral Resource of the Bishops' Committee on the Liturgy Committee on the Liturgy

An essential resource for "liturgical formation of the People of God," Introduction to the Order of Mass offers a detailed guide to the celebration of Mass, from introductory to concluding rites. An accompaniment to the General Instruction of the Roman Missal, the pastoral Introduction provides scriptural and historical context for the acts, objects, materials, symbols, rites, and prayers of the Mass-and in so doing helps all reach fuller and more active participation. As the Introduction makes clear, the celebration of Mass is "the work of the whole body of Christ; the ministers and other members of the congregation have a part in the action and a contribution to make." Whether a priest or deacon, lector or liturgical musician, server, usher, or among the gathered assembly, Introduction to the Order of Mass provides the insight, guidance, and specific suggestions on how each may enrich his understanding and participation in that most glorious of celebrations, "for the good of the whole and for the glory of God."

Since the beginning of the world, marriage and blessing have been inseparable. The blessing of marriage survived unharmed from our break with you through original sin. Jesus not only restored, but elevated the blessing of marriage to a sacrament. As a sign of Christ's living presence in the world, marriage is special blessing to our communities. This statement recaptures and further explores the blessing of marriage as a public commitment between a man and woman. It emphasizes the unitive and procreative aspects of marriage, the relationship between the two aspects, and the sacramental nature of marriage. There is also a deep and thorough discussion of the contemporary challenges to marriage in today's world and how the Church addresses those challenges.

En esta carta encíclica, el papa Juan Pablo II busca reavivar en los fieles el profundo sentido de "asombro y gratitud" que rodea la Eucaristía. La Eucaristía inspira la vida de la Iglesia. De "este pan vivo" se alimenta la Iglesia. En este conmovedor examen, desde la noche de la traición a Jesús hasta la celebración de hoy, pasando por María, "mujer de la Eucaristía", el papa Juan Pablo II acentúa la importancia central de la Eucaristía, y exhorta a todos a que "hagan de ella siempre una renovada experiencia".

In this encyclical letter, Pope John Paul II seeks to rekindle in the faithful the profound sense of "amazement and gratitude" that surrounds the Eucharist. It is from the Eucharist that the Church draws her life. From "this living bread" the Church draws her nourishment. In this moving examination, from the night of Jesus' betrayal through Mary, "woman of the Eucharist," to today's celebration, Pope John Paul II stresses the central importance of the Eucharist, and urges everyone to "experience it ever anew."

As we remember the gift of sacrifice to us, the Holy Father discusses the sacrament of the Eucharist and how it unites us with the living God and allows us to freely give of ourselves to others. The Eucharist is an exchange between God and humanity that brings us closer to him and reminds us of the purpose for our lives. The heart of the Church and the heart of the life of every Christian is essentially eucharistic in that it carries Christ within.
