An Introduction to the Liturgical Year
Inos Biffi and illustrator Franco Vignazia take readers through the liturgical year, introducing the celebrations of each season, beginning with Advent and ending with the solemnity of Our Lord Jesus Christ the King. On each page, readers will find intriguing imagery and enlightening explanations that reveal the scriptural roots of our observances and immerse readers in the rich symbolism of the Church's calendar--an annual revolution around the meaning of Christ's Paschal Mystery. Far more than informative, this book provides a visual and poetic reflection on the spiritual depths of the seasons and special feasts.
