Divine Liturgy uses all of our senses

We worship God in the Ukrainian Catholic Church with all of our senses in order to fully participate with our mind, body and soul.

  • Ears – We hear the word of God in the Gospel and Epistles readings 
  • Voices – We chant the praises of the angels 
  • Hands– We form the sign of the life-giving Cross 
  • Nose – We smell the incense as an offering of our prayer rising to heaven 
  • Body – We bow our heads, bend to the ground and kneel to worship God 
  • Eyes – We see the light of Christ in every candle and focus our prayers to the windows of heaven, the icons.
  • Mouth – We taste the very Body and Blood of Christ, the blessed five loaves of artoclasia, wine & oil, and/or the blessed dismissal bread.
