Abstract: The worship of God connects the material with the spiritual sphere. It also presents human beings with the opportunity of relating with God in a more profound manner. For Christians, the finest expression of faith is found in the liturgy especially the celebration of Holy Mass. However, many Catholics are yet to understand the Eucharist as communication. This paper, “An Appraisal of Liturgy as Communication” examined the matter using the qualitative method of study. It discovered that from the Liturgy of the Word to the Liturgy of the Eucharist, the Holy Mass is essentially a communication between human beings and God. The study recommended active participation, reverential disposition and effective-communication with God as recipes. It concluded that understanding Liturgy as Communication is crucial to appreciating the Eucharist more and the interaction that flows from that act of worship which is directed to God who alone is worshipped and glorified.
