This is why the Prayer of the Faithful responds not only to the needs of the particular Christian community but also to those of all humanity; and the Church, coming together for the Eucharistic celebration, shows to the world that she makes her own “the joys and hopes, the sorrows and anxieties of people today, especially of the poor and all those who suffer”.

This very close connection between the “day dokini God” and the “day of man” did not escape the Fathers in their meditation on the biblical creation story.
