CHAPTER V - PREPARATIONS FOR VARIOUS FEASTS AND DEVOTIONS DURING THE LITURGICAL YEAR

Previous | Index | Next



The liturgical year is the annual celebration of the mysteries of man's salvation and of the memory of the saints. It begins with the first Sunday of Advent, and the all-important element in each recurring celebration is the Sacrifice of the Mass. Each particular season of the liturgical year has its peculiar mysteries and graces that are celebrated by the Church in keeping with the spirit of the occasion. Hence, as Advent is the beginning of the liturgical year and its dominating characteristic is penance, the color of the season is purple.
