Liturgies of the Mass
The Catholic Mass comprises two main parts: the Liturgy of the Word and the Liturgy of the Eucharist.
During the Liturgy of the Word, scripture readings are followed by a homily, and the congregation professes their faith. The Liturgy of the Eucharist involves consecrating bread and wine into the body and blood of Christ.
This climaxes in Communion, fostering a sense of unity among believers through shared prayers and sacred gestures. The Mass is a profound communal act of worship, rooted in tradition and rich in ritual.
