This booklet summarizes articles 1066 thru 1134 of The Catechism of the Catholic Church and the main points include:
► In the liturgy of the church, God the Father is blessed as the source of all the blessings of creation with which he has blessed us in Christ, in order to give us the Spirit of filial adoption.
► Christ's work in the liturgy is sacramental because his Body, which is the Church, is like a sacrament (sign and instrument) in which the Holy Spirit dispenses the mystery of salvation and because through her liturgical actions the pilgrim Church already participates, as by a foretaste, in the heavenly liturgy.
► The mission of the Holy Spirit in the liturgy of the Church is to prepare the assembly to encounter Christ.
► The sacraments are signs of grace, instituted by Christ and entrusted to the Church, by which divine life is dispensed to us. The visible rites by which the sacraments are celebrated signify and make present the graces proper to each sacrament.
