Why is liturgy important, and what is its historical significance? The history of liturgy extends back to the book of Genesis in the Old Testament. In a conversation with Fr. Dempsey Rosales Acosta, Jeff Cavins delves into the significance of liturgy and the concept of sacrifice. They explore how liturgy shapes our relationship with God and trace its origins to the era of the Divided Kingdom.
