Liturgical notes

In the local Church, first place should certainly be given, because of its significance, to the Mass at which the Bishop presides, surrounded by his Presbyterate, Deacons, and lay ministers, and in which the holy People of God participate fully and actively, for it is there that the principal manifestation of the Church is found. 

General Instruction of the Roman Missal, §112

When the holy people of God gather to celebrate Mass with their bishop, they give witness to the fullness of the Church. We are a community of the faithful who are served by the pastoral leadership of the bishop, usually through the ministry of the local clergy. It is not always possible for the bishop to celebrate with parishes. When it is possible, the attendance and full participation of all the parish community in the celebration is especially significant. 

‘How worthy is the Lamb who was slain, to receive power and divinity, and wisdom and strength and honour. To him belong glory and power for ever and ever.’
