Rituals and Worship
The Mysteries of Christ's life are celebrated via a liturgical calendar throughout the year. The two greatest feasts celebrate Christ's Resurrection (Easter) and God's Incarnation (Christmas).
Cathedrals of great artistry and more modest churches serve as worship spaces for Roman Catholics, who believe that all the earth is holy as God's handiwork and the place of God's Incarnation in Jesus Christ.
Rites and Ceremonies
Roman Catholic worship is centered around the Sacrament of the Eucharist in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. Seven sacraments serve as efficacious outward signs of sanctifying grace for believers.
Worship and Devotion in Daily Life
Catholic life is full of prayer and the use of sacramentals that prepare the Catholic to receive grace, such as the rosary, the wearing of medals, and the giving of blessings.
Roman Catholic rituals and sacred spaces are filled with symbols pointing to the sacrificial life of Christ crucified, the example of the saints, the liturgical seasons, etc.
