While “diversity” in the church at prayer is widely desired, differences of gender, sexual orientation, age, ability, and cultural heritage are overlooked as sources of liturgical theology. Exploring such differences for their theological significance, this thesis examines rites of baptism, eucharist, healing, and marriage to sketch a pastoral liturgical theology of the assembly in its embodied particularities.
