Latin and You

Fr. John Zuhlsdorf:

Priests are ordained for sacrifice, which means sacred liturgical worship. That’s our primary activity as priests. We are, first and foremost, liturgical. That means being the best executors of our rites that we can be, not settling for the half-assed or the easy. There is nothing easy about sacred liturgy. It takes effort because everything that we are trying to accomplish through it and obtain from it is hard. We need our worship to be hard. We need it to require something from us, real effort, lest we run the risk of being liturgical parasites.
