By what metric do we measure a liturgical reform?
The Holy Supper has allowed me to experience the birth of Christ as an event that we can participate in today, continuing to give birth to Christ in our own lives.
Mother Maria sought to connect the liturgy of the church with the liturgy of our lives.
The reform of the liturgy after Vatican II is also debated within some Orthodox circles.
