The celebration of Mass is the action of Christ and the People of God — ministers and assembly . . . Every member of the liturgical assembly gathered by Christ has a part to play in the action of the whole . . . The participation of all is demanded by the nature of the liturgy and, for the faithful, is their right and duty by reason of their Baptism.
-Pastoral Introduction to the Order of Mass, United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, #4
