the majesty of liturgical action

"The offering of the body in prayer is at the heart of life and includes everything in our daily life, so that it radiates out into the world we live in, giving the majesty of liturgical action to our work and leisure, our eating and sleeping and speaking and moving; giving to our simplest act the redeeming power of the offering of Christ's Body, and making it both sacrifice to God and communion with humanity.

We shall carry this idea into the world, into the kitchen and the office, making life a liturgy, so that through it those prayers that Christ wishes to be made unceasingly will be made, regardless of our mood, and in tranquility."

~ Caryll Houselander, A Child In Winter
