The Liturgical Year (Ancient Practices Series) : There are years to mark every stage of life, from childhood to old age. And in the center of them all, unchanged for centuries is the liturgical year. Beginning at Advent and rolling through the following November, the church's liturgical year represents nothing less than the life of Jesus Christ - he whose life and attitudes Christians strive to emulate. It proposes, year after year, to immerse us repeatedly into the sense and substance of the Christian life until, eventually, we become what we say we are: followers of Jesus all the way to the heart of God. In The Liturgical Year you'll learn: How following the liturgical calendar helps us meld our lives with the life of Christ. The role that asceticism plays in liturgy. The four major kinds of celebrations, from Sundays to saints' days. How even non-holy days have a place in the liturgical routine. The liturgical life is not a relic of the past. It is the resounding reality of life in the present lived out of an ancient but living faith.
