Effectiveness is, that is to say, the new ontological dimension that is affirmed first in the liturgical sphere and is then to be extended progressively until in modernity it coincides with being as such. Understanding the meaning of effectus in liturgical texts will thus mean being confronted with a transformation in the conception of being that intimately concerns us. It is perhaps the case that we do not have any representation of being today other than effectiveness, and it is this dimension that is in question in terms From Mystery to Effect like Wirklichkeit, realitas, “reality,” as much as in the definition of Dasein in §9 of Being and Time as that entity whose essence “lies [liegt] in its existence” (Heidegger 4, 42/67).
Economic Trinity and immanent Trinity must correspond in the liturgy. But the tensions and contradictions that are implicit in the “economic-mysterious” paradigm of the Trinity will also continue to mark the public activity of the Church, in which mystery and economy, priestly action and economicpolitical praxis, opus operatum and opus operantis will continue to be endlessly distinguished and superimposed. The “kingdom of priests” of Exodus 19:6 and the “royal priesthood” of the Septuagint and the First Letter of Peter define the paradigm and, at the same time, the constitutive aporia of the Church’s liturgy.

In another text he specifies that “mystery means the divine action [göttliche Tat] in the Church, namely objective facts [objektive Tatsachen], which happen in and for a community [Gemeinschaft] and thus find a supraindividual expression in community service [Gemeinschaftsdienste]” (Casel 4, 146).
