“The glory of the Lord has shone upon us and shall ever manifest itself among us until the day of his return. Through the rhythms and changes of time, let us call to mind and live the mysteries of salvation.
Know, dear brethren (brothers and sisters), that, as we have rejoiced at the Nativity of our Lord Jesus Christ, so by leave of God’s mercy we announce to you also the joy of his Resurrection, who is our Saviour.
On the 22nd day of February will fall ASH WEDNESDAY, and the beginning of the most sacred Lenten season.
On the 8th day of April you will celebrate with joy EASTER SUNDAY, the Paschal feast of our Lord Jesus Christ.
On the 20th day of May, the ASCENSION OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST.
On the 27th day of May, the feast of PENTECOST.
On the 10th day of June, the feast of the MOST HOLY BODY AND BLOOD OF CHRIST.
On the 2nd day of December, the FIRST SUNDAY OF THE ADVENT OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST, to whom is honour and glory for ever and ever.
Every SUNDAY, when we recall this paschal mystery (the Lord’s death and resurrection), holy CHURCH makes present this great and saving event in which Christ has forever conquered sin and death.
Likewise in the feasts of the holy Mother of God, of the apostles and saints, and in commemoration of the faithful departed, the pilgrim Church on earth proclaims the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, our Lord.
To Christ who was, who is, and who is to come, the Lord of time and history, be endless praise for ever and ever. Amen.”
