Liturgy: not an option

Thou dost show me the path of life; in thy presence there is fullness of joy,
in thy right hand are pleasures evermore.  - Psalm 16:11 
“Liturgy is not an option nor merely an obligation, not a bonus, but a need—like food and drink, like sleep and work, like friends. We need to gather, listen, give praise and thanks, and share communion.

Otherwise we forget who we are and whose we are; and we can have neither the strength nor the joy to be Christ’s body—present in the world today.”       

Cardinal Joseph Bernardin
