Liturgical Year


The Catholic Church's calendar. The liturgical year shapes our life, prayer and activities, enabling us to breathe in harmony with the Church via two mutually enriching cycles (Ordinary time and the Sanctoral). These cycles hinge on the Pascal Mystery: the death and resurrection of Jesus. It is also the title of the widely successful book by our founder, Dom Prosper Guéranger, which introduced the faithful of many generations to the riches of the Church's liturgy.
