Journal of Religious Ethics 14 (2):173-189 (1979)

Relations between liturgy and ethics are most adequately formulated by tracing how specific affections and virtues are formed and expressed in the modalities of communal prayer and ritual action. After explicating four primary modes of liturgy and their characteristic affections, the connection between liturgy and the ethics of character is drawn out in detail. Liturgy as cultus must bear within itself prophetic selfawareness in a world of moral ambiguity, seen most clearly in the recovery of the intercessions. The conceptual link between "glorification of God and sanctification of man" reveals how worship embodies moral direction and vision
