For Pope Benedict XVI, “the liturgical year is a great voyage of faith on which the Church sets us out.”

The feast days in the Church’s liturgical calendar follow the major events of Jesus’ life as recounted in the Gospels. This cycle provides a rhythm to the life of the Church and helps Christians better understand the divine mystery.

Beginning with Advent and concluding with the feast of Christ the King, Holy Days presents selected homilies that the Pope has pronounced over the course of the liturgical year in Rome. The book is organized by season and feast days, with brief introductions.

This short volume will be a welcome resource for priests and parishioners seeking to focus their minds in preparation for worship.
