The Divine Liturgy of the Holy Orthodox Church is the sacred rite by which the church as the “assembly of God” celebrates the mystery of the Eucharist. This title for the Eucharist is derived from two Greek words “theia” and “leitourgia”. The word “theia” means pertaining to God, therefore divine. The word “leitourgia comes from two words — “leitos” which means the people, and “ergon” which means work. That is the work of the people or a public service act or function.
