Because this is so, it is no wonder that where, owing to lack of teaching or spiritual insight, we trust in our own diligence and effort, to the influence of the world and the flesh, and work more than we pray, the presence and power of God are not seen in our work as we would wish. The Sacred Liturgy, described by Sacrosanctum Concilium as the summit of the Church's life, can never be reduced to a mere aesthetic reality.

This devotion was given by the National Lutheran Choir's bass section leader, Paul Wilson, on the evening of April 1, before rehearsal. If you’re like me, you find the cover of this issue of RW thought-provoking. But, we cannot remain silent in the face of injustices small or big if we are to follow Jesus faithfully. All of life is in his hands, in his control. The psalms are often in the form of a prayer, in words spoken to God. One was a Pharisee, and the other was a despised tax collector.

[34] The Orthodox focus on Mary as the Theotokos gives more emphasis to devotions that praise Mary's role in the mystery of Incarnation, rather than other devotions, e.g., those that consider her sorrows at Calvary. [28] Devotions to the Theotokos are often combined with the veneration of icons depicting her with the Child Jesus.
