Journal of Religious Ethics 7 (2):139-171 (1979)

Both liturgy and morality are "formed references" to Divine events to which faith also testifies. So there is parity among the orandi, the bene operandi, and the credendi of the Christian church, and multi-directional, shaping influences among them. An ethicist's understanding of morality is diminished without the context of liturgy and the rule of faith. An impoverished or distorted, shapeless liturgy influences the morality we credit. If today the church struggled for itself against itself over a proper understanding of the Christian moral life, this would be both reflected in and aided by certain liturgical innovations
