Archbishop Alexander Sample of the Diocese of Portland, Oregon helps us to understand the foundational role that the liturgy plays in rebuilding our Catholic faith: “I am solidly convinced that an authentic and faithful renewal and reform of the sacred liturgy is not only part of the New Evangelization-it is essential to its fruitfulness. The liturgy has the power to form and transform the Catholic faithful. We must live by the axiom, lex orandi, lex credendi (the law of praying is the law of believing).What we celebrate in the Mass expresses the essential content of the faith, and it also reinforces our faith when celebrated well and with fidelity. The liturgy both teaches us and expresses what we believe. If we do not get the sacred liturgy right, I fear that we will just be spinning our wheels rather than getting the New Evangelization going in the right direction. If we are transformed by the sacred liturgy, then we,as believers, can help transform the culture.
