Liturgy is Jesus acting in modern times through his mystical body, as he acted in Gospel times through his flesh and blood body. The Liturgy is celebrating mass. It is celebrated through Baptism. It is celebrating Reconciliation. In the words of the Second Vatican Council, Liturgy is Jesus continuing his "work of redemption" on earth.
Aunt Deborah read the scripture to me like a daily newspaper and I suppose thats the way she thought of it, as something going on, happening eternally but always exciting and new. Every Easter Jesus really rose from the dead, an explosion, expected but nonetheless new; it wasn't two thousand years ago to her; it was now.
- John Steinbeck
The Winter of our Discontent
This excerpt illustrates what liturgy is. It is not something that happened two thousand years ago; it is something expected, but new - happening now.
