Dear God, open a door for my message, so that I may proclaim the mystery of Christ. I pray that I may proclaim it clearly, as I should. Colossians 4:3-4

Catholic Liturgical Calendar


The Catholic Church has it’s own liturgical calendar where the liturgical period and day dates for solemnity, memorial, feast and ordinary days are preset for each liturgical year cycle. The reading and gospel daily and Sunday mass during the liturgical year also set based on the liturgical cycle (Year A, Year B and Year C).

The new liturgical year begin on the first of Advent (normally at the end of November / early December) during the season we await for the first coming of our Lord, the birth of the Messiah, Jesus Christ. The last day of the liturgical year at the feast of Christ the King (at the end of November of the following calendar year) which marks our awaiting for the second coming of Christ the King, the Lion of Judah and King of the Universe on judgment day, the end of times.

The climax of every liturgical year is the Paschal mystery of the Lord (Easter Triduum - Holy Thursday, Good Friday, Holy Saturday and Easter Sunday) which commemorates the Passion of Christ (Last Super through the crucifixion and resurrection of Christ). The liturgical year is divided to 3 main liturgical times, Holy days of Obligation, Ordinary days, and Feast/Memorial of Holy Saints and Martyrs.
