Liturgy matters: Liturgy and scripture as the mirrors of catholicity
Casey, Damien. (2005). Liturgy matters: Liturgy and scripture as the mirrors of catholicity. Australian Ejournal of Theology.
This article considers two recent debates about the reform of the liturgy in the light of the principle of lex Orandi lex Credendi. Liturgy is important because it nourishes and sustains belief, but a didactic approach to liturgy does not do full justice to the dynamic nature of the liturgy and its relation to the community. It examines the development of the canon of scripture from a phenomenological perspective, as a paradigmatic example of the dynamic relationship between the liturgy and the community. As "full, active and conscious" participants in the liturgy, the faithful also has a part to play in the recognition and acceptance of these reforms.
