Title: WHY CATHOLICS DO WHAT THEY DO (IN CHURCH)
Symbols and signs are essential to the Roman Catholic Liturgy and Ritual. Candles, what do they represent? How and when are they used and how do they affect us? Water: it can be a symbol of death as well as life and it is used in some of the Churchís most important rituals. Gestures: how standing, kneeling, hand gestures, and even sitting down have specific purposes in the mass. Crosses: in addition to the symbol of Christianity which hangs in every church, we cross ourselves and make ìthe sign of the crossî at important moments in our rituals. These four segments are covered in a way that will help young people, catechumens and even life-long Catholics better understand the important reasons for these traditions and how they help us grow in faith. A study guide is included for discussion.
