This Week in Catholic Liturgy: Good to be Here
In the sacred Liturgy, we encounter the crucified and risen Lord, and we return from that encounter to the rigors of everyday life. For Peter, the mountaintop experience could have lasted forever; but he was commanded to "listen to" Jesus, who accompanied him back to his life, never to depart from him even when he would depart from Jesus. Can we faithfully enter the mystical liturgical encounter, trusting that the Lord of glory will facilitate our re-entry into society the better for having taken that time and having given that presence?
