Liturgical Living

A few people have asked why and how to use a liturgical calendar, so I thought I'd share my answers here:

  • Overall, it is a visual reminder of our faith. That we are set apart. As Christians, our days are not meant to be oriented around civic holidays, but around the Christian story.
  • It encourages us to observe and engage with the Christian year. 
  • It is an opportunity for evangelization. "What is that thing on your wall?" 
  • The feast days included at the bottom of the page are a great quick reference for upcoming days one might want to remember. Feast days for Martyrs are noted in red.
  • Holy days of obligation (along with a few other larger feast days) are located at the center of the calendar, making it easy to reference when a holy day is approaching. 
  • Learning about and seeing a visual representation of how the first full moon determines the date of Easter is interesting and may spark questions about the history of how this date is determined each year. 

The new shop is OPEN and the preorder sale for the Sacred Art Calendars is ON! The Yearly Liturgical calendars are also available.
