Ordo Calendar from commonprayer.org – keep track of the Church Year!

Quotes

“The Church year, or to use the term preferred in Latin documents, the liturgical year is the commemorative celebration, throughout a calendar year, of the saving deeds God accomplished in Jesus Christ … Christian faith thus takes concrete and effective form in the liturgical year, and this year becomes the comprehensive self-expression of the Church, while at the same time contributing to the consolidation and building up of Christian life” (Adolf Adam, The Liturgical Year, vii & ix).

Books
