There is a famous joke about a child who, on Christmas morning, finds a pile of horse manure under the tree instead of the expected presents. Yet, far from disappointed, the child gleefully shovels the manure (by hand, no less), because with all that manure, there must be a pony! I could be that child. Frankly, I always try to be that child.
We will continue to live with the COVID-19 pandemic in 2021 and the immediacy of not knowing and constant change. Therefore, the Diocesan Liturgy Council (DLC) imagines our liturgical life in 2021 as a bridge, spaning the distance between 2020 and the hopes and dreams we may have for 2022.
Our website data suggests there has been a lot of parish activity sparked by the Diocesan Liturgy Council’s invitation to participate in a formal review of the ‘Pastoral Guidance for the Preparation and Celebration of the Sacrament of Confirmation’. That’s wonderful.
Because there are so many things happening at the moment, today’s Liturgy Matters offers you a feast of opportunities and information which you might like to consider over a cup of coffee. Explore! Read! Ponder! Act!
