Sacred Liturgy: a bridge between Heaven & Earth

The Sacrifice of Jesus Christ (Heb 7:27) is the Life of our Sacrifice of the Altar (Heb 9:24; 13:10) which is the source and summit of the Sacrifice of Praise (Heb 13:15)…

Images: Lauds

Replebimur in bonis domus tuae: * sanctum est templum tuum, mirabile in æquitate We shall be filled with the good things of thy house; * holy is thy temple, wonderful in justice.

Ps 64, Feria IV ad Laudes


…and the Sacrifice of Praise, aka the Divine Office (the images show Lauds), channels grace for daily acts of charity to neighbours and those in need (Heb 13:16 “Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have, for such sacrifices are pleasing to God.“).

Thus the Divine Act in Heaven gives life to the world through Holy Mass & the Divine Office. So sublime is reality, so close is Heaven to Earth.
