There is a treasure trove of riches in the ancient Roman liturgy of the Church. The feasts and fasts, ember days, rogation days, and octaves make for a rising and falling as in the Gregorian Chant. Yet, we have forgotten so much, and it is difficult to recover these traditions in our age of noise and ugliness.

As a small offering to help families, and children especially, see sacred time illuminated in a beautiful way, Michaela Harrison and her family have worked together to make a set of fully illustrated calendars that follow the traditional liturgical calendar. These calendars present time not according to the months, but according to the different periods of the liturgical year.

With these calendars, you can 'see' time after Epiphany in a new light, Lent and Advent are framed with wood to remind us of the cross, and the seven weeks of Easter form a week of weeks that you can see all at once. This unique artwork presents in composition, color, and tone the things that Our Mother desires us to meditate on during each season of the year.

Each day in the calendars is fully illustrated with the Saint, feast or feria of that day. Themes from the breviary and from Dom Gueranger's The Liturgical Year are woven throughout the imagery for each week. All of the information you need to see is there, fast days, the class of feast and even the color of vestments the priest will wear in the liturgy are available at a glance. The images of the saints are taken from the medieval and classical art traditions and represented together in such a way as to show the communion of the saints in our daily lives. Little nuggets such as the three epiphanies of Our Lord can be seen clearly depicted during the season of Epiphany.

These calendars are also a wonderful teaching aid to be used in homes, schools and anywhere the faith is taught.
