The Catholic Liturgy

The liturgy, and especially the Eucharist, is the privileged place where the Church confesses her faith. She confesses it in the loftiest way possible, that is, in a dialogue of love with her Lord. The liturgical expression of this dialogue is marked by the fact that it is not a single believer or group of believers who are at stake, but the Church herself. It is a matter of "public" prayer whose importance, because of its character, surpasses that of other prayers. In fact, as the Council says, "no other action of the Church can equal its efficacy by the same title and to the same degree" (cf. SacrosanctuM Concilium, n. 7). This prayer is intrinsically determined by the profession of faith.
