A Eucharist which does not pass over into the concrete practice of love is intrinsically fragmented. —Pope Benedict XVI
What is the relationship between good liturgy and social justice?
Students will learn how to judge the authenticity of worship based on the biblical principles of justice.
Students will explore the proper relationship of jusitce before worship; they will explore why justice is primary and yet insufficient without worship. They will discern the difference between secular justice and Christian or biblical justice. They will answer for themselves what difference Christianity makes in the struggle for justice.
Review the learning plan you created at the beginning of the course. Evaluate yourself on how well you stuck to your plan. As reminder, the plan centered on these five questions.
In regards to my habits, knowledge, and attitudes about liturgy:
- Where have I been?
- Where am I now?
- Where do I want to get to?
- How am I going to get there?
- How will I know that I have arrived?
