Liturgy

The wonderful works of God among the people of the Old Testament were but a prelude to the work of Jesus Christ the Lord in redeeming mankind and giving perfect glory to God.  He accomplished this work principally by the Paschal mystery of his blessed Passion, Resurrection from the dead, and glorious Ascension, whereby ‘dying he destroyed our death, rising he restored our life.’  For it was from the side of Christ as he slept the sleep of death upon the cross that there came forth ‘the wondrous sacrament of the whole church.’  For this reason, the Church celebrates in liturgy above all the Paschal mystery by which Christ accomplished the work of our salvation (CCC No. 1068). 

The word “liturgy” originally meant a “public work” or a “service” in the name of / on behalf of the people.”  In Christian tradition it means the participation of the People of God in “the work of God.”  Through the liturgy Christ, our redeemer and high priest, continues the work of our redemption in, with, and through his Church. 

Here within the Natick Catholic Community of St. Linus and St. Patrick we celebrate the Liturgy, the Mass, each day, along with the Vigil Mass on Saturday afternoon and Sunday Masses.  Throughout the Liturgical we celebrate as a community the four mysteries of our faith: Christmas; Holy Thursday; Good Friday; and Easter Sunday.  Our Masses are Roman Catholic Mass structured around the “four movements” of the Mass:  Gathering; Storytelling; Meal Sharing; and Commissioning.
