In our fourth episode of the Liturgical Institute’s video series on the Ordinary Form, called Elements of the Catholic Mass we will hear how even our churches are unique.
In this episode, we dive into the meaning of the church building. The Catholic Church is a sacramental Church which means deeper realities are expressed in perceptible signs. The church building is not a neutral place; it is not simply a skin for liturgical action. It is a place where prayer happens; it is a temple where sacrifice is offered.
