VATICAN II: Constitution on the Liturgy (December 4, 1963)

26. Liturgical services are not private functions but are celebrations of the church which is “the sacrament of unity,” namely, the holy people united and organized under their bishops.

  1. Servers, readers, commentators, and members of the choir also exercise a genuine liturgical ministry.
  2. To develop active participation, the people should be encouraged to take part by means of acclamations,

responses, psalms, antiphons, hymns, as well as by actions, gestures and bodily attitudes. And at the proper time a reverent silence should be observed.

33. In the liturgy God speaks to his people, Christ is still proclaiming his gospel, and the people respond to God both in song and in prayer.

The prayers addressed to God by the priest who, in the person of Christ, presides over the assembly, are said in the name of the entire holy people and of all present.
34. The rites should radiate a noble simplicity. They should be short, clear, and free from useless repetition. They should be within the powers of comprehension, and normally should not require much explanation.

35. In liturgical celebrations, a more ample, more varied, and more suitable selection of readings from sacred scripture should be restored.
36. The use of the Latin language, except when a particular law prescribes otherwise, is to be preserved in the Latin rites. But since the use of the vernacular, whether in the Mass, the administration of the sacraments, or in other parts of the liturgy, may frequently be of great advantage to the people, a wider use may be made of it, especially in readings, directives and in some prayers and chants.

37. Even in the liturgy the church does not wish to impose a rigid uniformity in matters which do not affect the faith or the well-being of the entire community. Rather does it cultivate and foster the qualities and talents of the various races and nations.
38. Provided that the substantial unity of the Roman rite is preserved, provision shall be made, when revising the liturgical books, for legitimate variations and adaptations to different groups, regions and peoples, especially in mission countries.

39. Within the limits set by the standard editions of the liturgical books it shall be for the competent ecclesiastical authority to specify adaptations, especially as regards the administration of the sacraments, sacramentals, processions, liturgical language, sacred music and the arts.
40. In some places and circumstances, however, an even more radical adaptation of the liturgy is needed. The competent ecclesiastical authority must carefully and prudently consider which elements from the traditions and cultures of individual peoples might appropriately be admitted into divine worship. Adaptations which are considered useful or necessary should then be submitted to the Apostolic See, to be introduced with its consent.

41. The bishop is to be considered the high priest of his flock from whom the life of his people in Christ is in some way derived and on whom it in some way depends. People must be convinced that the principal manifestation of the church consists in the full, active participation of all God’s holy people in the same liturgical celebrations, especially in the same Eucharist, in one prayer, at one altar at which the bishop presides.

42. Parishes, each set up locally under a pastor who takes the place of the bishop, represents the visible church established throughout the world. Efforts must also be made to encourage a sense of community within the parish, above all in the common celebration of Sunday Mass.

Vatican II: Constitution on the Liturgy

(December 4, 1963)
7. Christ is always present in his church, especially in liturgical celebrations. He is present in the sacrifice of the Mass both in the person of his minister and most of all in the eucharistic species. By his power he is present in the sacraments so that when anybody baptizes it is really Christ himself who baptizes. He is present in his word since it is he himself who speaks when the holy scriptures are read in church. Lastly, he is present when the church prays and sings, for he has promised “where two or three are gathered together in

my name there am I in the midst of them” (Mt 19:20).
The liturgy, then, is rightly seen as an exercise of the priestly office of Jesus Christ. In the liturgy the

sanctification of women and men is given expression in symbols perceptible by the senses and is carried out in ways appropriate to each of them. In it, complete and definitive public worship is performed by the mystical body of Jesus Christ, that is, by the Head and his members.
10. The liturgy is the summit toward which the activity of the church is directed; it is also the source from which all its power flows.

13. Christian devotions should be so drawn up that they harmonize with the liturgical seasons, accord with the sacred liturgy, are in some way derived from it, and lead the people to it, since in fact the liturgy by its very nature is far superior to any of them.
14. It is very much the wish of the church that all the faithful should be led to take that full, conscious, and active part in liturgical celebrations which is demanded by the very nature of the liturgy, and to which the Christian people have a right and to which they are bound by reason of their Baptism.

21. It is the wish of the church to undertake a careful general reform of the liturgy in order that the Christian people may be more certain to derive an abundance of graces from it. For the liturgy is made up of unchangeable elements divinely instituted, and of elements subject to change. These latter not only may be changed but ought to be changed with the passage of time, if they have suffered from the intrusion of anything out of harmony with the inner nature of the liturgy or have become less suitable. In this renewal, both texts and rites should be ordered so as to express more clearly the holy things which they signify. The people should be able to understand them easily and take part in them in a celebration which is full, active and the community’s own.

22. (1) Regulation of the sacred liturgy depends solely on the authority of the church, that is, on the apostolic see, and, in accordance with the law, on the bishop.

(2) In virtue of the power conferred on them by law, the regulation of the liturgy within certain defined limits belongs also to various kinds of groupings of bishops, legitimately established, with competence in given territories.

(3) Therefore no other person whatsoever, not even a priest, may add, remove, or change anything in the liturgy on their own authority.
23. In order that sound tradition be retained, and yet the way remain open to legitimate process, a careful investigation should always, first of all, be made into each section of the liturgy which is to be revised. There must be no innovations unless the good of the church genuinely and certainly requires them, and care must be taken that any new forms adopted should in some way grow organically from forms already existing.
24. Sacred scripture is of the greatest importance in the celebration of the liturgy. For from it are drawn the lessons which are read and which are explained in the homily; from it too come the psalms which are sung. It is from scripture that the petitions, prayers and hymns draw their inspiration and their force, and that actions and signs derive their meaning.
25. The liturgical books are to be revised as soon as possible. Bishops from various parts of the world are to be consulted.

Opening Address of the Second Vatican Council

Pope John XXIII (October 11, 1962)

Mother Church rejoices that, by the singular gift of Divine Providence, the longed for day has finally dawned when – under the auspices of the virgin Mother of God, whose maternal dignity is commemorated on this feast – the Second Vatican Ecumenical Council is being solemnly opened here beside St. Peter’s tomb.

In the daily exercise of our pastoral office, we sometimes have to listen, much to our regret, to voices of persons who, though burning with zeal, are not endowed with too much sense of discretion or measure. In these modern times they can see nothing but prevarication and ruin. They say that our era, in comparison with past eras, is getting worse, and they behave as though they had learned nothing from history, which is, nonetheless the teacher of life. They behave as though at the time of former Councils everything was a full triumph for the Christian idea and life and for proper religious liberty. We feel we must disagree with those prophets of gloom, who are always forecasting disaster, as though the end of the world were at hand.

The Church’s solicitude to promote and defend truth derives from the fact that, according to the plan of God, who wills all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth (1 Tim 2:4), without the assistance of the whole of revealed doctrine men and women cannot reach a complete and firm unity of minds, with which are associated true peace and eternal salvation.

Indeed, if one considers well this same unity which Christ implored for his Church, it seems to shine, as it were, with a triple ray of beneficent heavenly light: namely, the unity of Catholics among themselves, which must always be kept exemplary and most firm; the unity of prayers and ardent desires with which those Christians separated from this Apostolic See aspire to be united with us; and the unity in esteem and respect for the Catholic Church which animates those who follow non-Christian religions.

Dear Friends in Christ:

At Baptism, each of us is given the responsibility to be a missionary: to share our faith joyfully

with all people, those near to us and those in distant lands.
The celebration of World Mission Sunday on October 21 gives us the opportunity to reach

out to more than two-thirds of the world’s people who have yet to hear the Good News. We can offer our prayers for this cause of spreading the love of Christ. Moreover, we are all called upon to give our financial support for the mission of making Jesus known “to the ends of the earth.”

World Mission Sunday does not just take place here in the Archdiocese of Vancouver. It is a universal celebration desired by our Holy Father, a time of worldwide recommitment to engage Catholics throughout the world in the Church’s evangelizing mission.

The missionary work of the Church depends on each one of us. In this special collection on October 21, please be as generous as your means allow. Let us all continue to pray that we in the Archdiocese will be effective witnesses and courageous proclaimers of Jesus to our world.

With cordial greetings and my blessing for you and your families, I remain Sincerely yours in Christ,

J. Michael Miller, CSB Archbishop of Vancouver

One of the great gifts of the stewardship lifestyle is the acute awareness that everything in life is a gift from God. This includes our relationships. Today’s first reading and Gospel focus on marriage in particular. God, in His infinite wisdom, knows that we need ‘helpers’, that we should not be alone in our faith journey. In marriage, and in the relationships we enjoy with our sisters and brothers in the Body of Christ, good stewardship is doing whatever we can to help each other get to Heaven!

HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO ALL!

23rd Sunday in Ordinary Time – September 9: “Did not God choose those who are poor in the world to be rich in faith and heirs of the kingdom that he promised to those who love him?” (James 2:5). What is more important – being rich in faith or rich in possessions? Society teaches us that possessions are most important. God teaches a different lesson. When we are rich in faith we know that material things really do not matter and we are more willing to share what we have.
