Days of the Lord, Vol. 1 (Days of the Lord: the Liturgical Year)

By Cardinal Danneels Godfried

This book is in very good condition. There is some wear on the front, back, spine and edges of the covers. There is no bumping or fraying on the covers, however, there are bent edges on the covers and pages. The pages are crisp, white, and clear of any markings. " Typically, " the liturgical year" calls to mind only the Christian calendar of Sundays and feasts that, instead of beginning on January 1 and ending December 31, goes from the first Sunday of Advent to the Saturday at the end of the thirty-fourth week of Ordinary Time. This deviation from the common secular calendar does not create a real problem. One reason is that we are used to other, similar deviations, particularly those of the school year. Another is that Christmas is the only date one needs to know in order to determine the date of the first of the four Sundays of Advent. However, this first, superficial picture of a simple, annual schedule of Christian celebrations is not enough to fully appreciate the profound reality of the liturgical year and all its values. We must begin, therefore, with a certain understanding of time.,,," -Chapter One from Days of the Lord, Vol 1 (Days of the Lord: the Liturgical Year)
