Count the days and weeks of this liturgical year accompanied by a passionate and faithful prophet, St. John the Baptist, who prepared the way of the Lord. The Year of Grace 2017 liturgical calendar presents scenes from the life of this saint painted by James B. Janknegt in a lively, expressive style. This liturgical year follows the Sunday Year A cycle and the Weekday Year I cycle, beginning on November 27, 2016 (First Sunday of Advent) and ending on Saturday, December 2.
LTP’s circular display of the liturgical year makes its key features easily understandable. Everyone can see at a glance the liturgical seasons in their characteristic colors, Sundays on the outer rim, and the days and weeks radiating from the center, where the artist has portrayed John baptizing Jesus and the Holy Spirit descending. We can almost hear God’s voice: This is my beloved Son.
