David Hust to discuss the purpose and goodness of liturgy. They explain why it is so important to understand liturgy and all the ways that the faithful can participate in the liturgies of the Church.

If we’re meant to be the light to the nations, we better get liturgy right.


Our Guest: Fr. David Hust

Fr. David Hust is a Parochial Vicar at St. Anthony of Padua Catholic Church for the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston.

Catechism of the Catholic Church, Paragraph 1069

The word “liturgy” originally meant a “public work” or a “service in the name of/on behalf of the people.” In Christian tradition it means the participation of the People of God in “the work of God.” Through the liturgy Christ, our redeemer and high priest, continues the work of our redemption in, with, and through his Church.
