Our Calendar of the Christian Year is a daily encouragement, a reminder of those who have run the race before us.
Our newly-expanded Calendar of the Christian Year richly reflects the common, ecumenical heritage that all Christians share in the saints of the early, undivided Church as it is expressed in the calendars of the Western and Eastern churches.
Pride of place in any Christian calendar, of course, belongs to the commemorations of the life of Our Lord Jesus Christ, the Annunciation, Nativity, Baptism, Triumphal Entry, Crucifixion, Resurrection, and Ascension, among others.
But unlike many Christian calendars, ours also lists saints of both the Old and New Testament prophets, apostles, evangelists and many others on their dates as commemorated in the Eastern and Western churches.
Furthermore, and uniquely, our calendar lists saints from antiquity who are commemorated on the same dates in both Eastern and Western calendars. There are hundreds of such saints shared by East and West throughout the year, and we list them all.
This unique ecumenical calendar is thus an inspiring expression and daily reminder of the communion of the saints to which we all belong. It includes prophets, apostles, martyrs, missionaries, monks, children, married and unmarried, peasants and kings, preachers, bishops, and pastors, all members of the mystical Body of Christ, that great cloud of witnesses. In this way we can remember the saints every day, and be encouraged by their witness to Christ, the Lord of all.
Celebrate your Christian heritage!
