Liturgical Year Volume 2 Released: Ordinary Time before Lent
The second volume of our ebook series for the 2017-2018 liturgical year has been released in our ebooks download area. This volume covers the initial period of Ordinary Time between Christmas and Lent, from January 9th through February 13th. It may be downloaded free of charge in the following formats: .mobi (Kindle), .epub (Nook and other standard ereaders), and .pdf (most computer devices).
Since Ordinary Time begins on January 9th this year (in other words, the day after this announcement was posted), you might well ask why we are getting the word out so late. I confess to being forgetful of how short the Christmas Season is these days (not to mention how long I wish to put off Lent!).
Anyway, our liturgical year ebooks include all the liturgical day information for each season just as it appears on CatholicCulture.org. These offer a rich set of resources for families to use in living the liturgical year in the domestic church. Resources include biographies of the saints to match each feast day, histories of the various celebrations and devotions, descriptions of customs from around the world, prayers, activities and recipes. The series has been developed by the author of our Liturgical Year Blog, Jennifer Gregory Miller, and our librarian and review coordinator, Darden Brock.
These ebooks provide a wonderful—and completely free—complement to the widely-used Magnificat series, which emphasizes spiritual reading for each day.
