Guilt, mercy and praise in the liturgy

This article argues that guilt, mercy and praise do not always receive the attention they merit in the liturgy. The article aims to enhance the liturgical meaning of the confession of sin and the absolution. The liturgical meaning of these acts is determined by the theological function of the confession of sin and the absolution. A place in the liturgy is assigned to the Kyrie eleison, the Gloria and the Agnus Dei. This article demonstrates that their proper place is as part of Holy Communion.
