Liturgy and Discipleship

Cyprian Vagaggini, O.S.B., one of the twentieth century’s most important liturgical theologians, described the liturgy as “the privileged place of encounter between man and God.” Yet, increasing numbers of Catholics today choose to live apart from the Church’s corporate prayer. Many have not experienced the liturgy as a point of encounter, and many more are uncertain whether such an encounter with God is even possible. This course will inspire you with a promising vision for evangelization, discipleship, sacramental preparation and mystagogical catechesis, one that places maximum emphasis on apprenticing people into an active and fruitful sacramental life in Christ.
