Every Sunday we, the ‘body of Christ’, gather at the celebration of the Eucharist to become ever more “The Body of Christ”. This is an awesome truth. All of the actions, words, hymns, postures, sights, sounds, and even moments of silence at the celebration have, as their ultimate goals, the glorification of God and our own transformation. Sister Angela Hibbard, IHM, has prepared a series of essays designed to help us understand the various parts of the Mass. She is a member of the Archdiocesan Worship Commission and is on staff at Gesu Parish, responsible for parish faith formation, particularly the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA).
