A treasure trove of riches is available to us in the ancient Roman liturgy of the Church. Its feasts and fasts, ember days, rogation days, and octaves make for a rising and falling consistent with that of Gregorian Chant. Yet, we have forgotten so much of it, and recovering these precious traditions in our age of noise and ugliness and cynicism is challenging.
As a small offering to help families, and children especially, to see sacred time illuminated in a beautiful and appealing way, Michaela Harrison and her family have together created a set of exquisitely illustrated calendars that bring to life the traditional liturgical calendar. These works of art present time not according to months, but according to the distinct periods of the liturgical year.
With these posters your family can visualize what the Church asks us to meditate upon during Septuagesima: the Fall, the Flood, and Abraham’s sacrifice of Isaac. Lent is shown framed by the wood of the Cross, reaching its spiritual climax in Holy Week and the Triduum. See the events of Our Lord’s Passion presented alongside the elegant liturgical traditions of Tenebrae and the Altar of Repose. Then, depicted in brilliant white, see our Risen Lord and walk with Him as He shows Himself to his disciples during Easter. Accompany Him through the seven weeks of Easter, see Him ascend to Heaven, and thrill and delight at the Vigil of Pentecost.
Each day the calendars feature a Saint, feast, or feria of that day, including the commemorated saints featured in niches or coves. Themes from the breviary and from Dom Gueranger’s The Liturgical Year are woven throughout the imagery for each week. All of the information contained in the genius of the liturgy is there for you to see: fast days, the class of feast, even the color of vestments the priest will wear in the liturgy are all available at a glance. The images of the saints are taken from medieval and classical art traditions and are represented together in such a way as to show the communion of the saints in our daily lives. With these calendars on the wall, you will never forget a saint’s feast day again!
These powerful Catholic calendars are wonderful teaching tools for use in homes, schools, anywhere the faith is taught, and lived.
