Sacred Time & Sacred Space
in the East and West
Father David Nix
Discover the beauty and wisdom of the Catholic liturgy in this lesson by Father David Nix. He explains how sacred time and space are arranged and celebrated in both the Eastern and Western traditions of the Church.
INDIVIDUAL & SMALL GROUP DISCUSSION QUESTIONS:
- What are some of the most glaring ways secularism and modernism order time and space differently from how the liturgy and the liturgical calendar order times and space?
- Since all time and space belong to God, how might you better order the time and space with which God has blessed you?
- What are some of the things that you need to remove from your time and space? That is, those things in your space that can never be oriented to God, but are part of your daily life and space.
