It is pretty clear. That is my point. The relationship between Dogma and Liturgy is reciprocal and symbiotic. One is not less essential than the other. Dogma is used to express the intricate meaning and beauty of the liturgy. Whereas compelling man to worship our Lord (in conformity with His rites) is the principal end and purpose of all dogma. In addition, it is the inexpressible merit of the liturgy that provides the most efficacious means of grace for man to accept Catholic dogma.

We were not speaking of possessing the Catholic faith. Having the Catholic faith implies an equal reverence and necessity for both dogma and liturgy. What we we're discussing was the false dichotomy you and others are attempting to propagate between Dogma and Liturgy. If a Catholic does not profess the equal and absolute necessity of both, then he does not possess the Catholic faith in its entirety.
