Pope Francis on liturgy

“A liturgy detached from spiritual worship would risk becoming empty, devoid of Christian originality, sacred in a generic sense, quasi magical, and a hollow aestheticism. As an action of Christ, liturgy has an inner impulse to be transformed in the sentiments of Christ, and in this dynamism all reality is transfigured. “Our daily life — in our body, in small things — must be profusely inspired, immersed in the divine reality, it must become action together with God.” Pope Francis

Give us pure hearts and steadfast wills to worship……

Almighty God,
whose only Son has opened for us
a new and living way into your presence:
give us pure hearts and steadfast wills
to worship you in spirit and in truth;
through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever. 
Amen
