Understanding Liturgical Prayer by Fr. Nikola Derpich, L.C., S.Th.D.
The focus of Finding the Plug is to help you draw spiritual fruit from the Eucharistic celebration. By “finding the plug,” the hope is that you’ll establish a vital connection with the Mass that helps you put your heart and mind into liturgical prayer in order to capitalize on all the graces the liturgy seeks to communicate. Each post offers a spiritual reflection on each of the prayers found in the Ordinary of the Mass: the prayers we say either daily or every Sunday in the celebration of the Eucharist, prayers that we’ve recited together in the Eucharist for centuries and contain a richness that has stood the test of time and blessed the lives of so many believers. Our hope is that “Finding the Plug” helps you achieve “a greater awareness of the mystery being celebrated and its relationship to daily life” (Sacramentum Caritatis, 52).
