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.

The time after Pentecost starts out in brilliant colors. You will journey through Michaelmas and Embertide while engaging with stunning classical artwork featuring images of Jesus, Mary, and the saints. You’ll see biblical miracles come alive and learn about Our Lady’s role in the victory at Lepanto. You’ll encounter awe-inspiring architecture featuring Christ the King bounded by the Holy Souls in Purgatory, the saints in Heaven, and St. Michael the Archangel holding the scales of judgment.

Continue through each week after Pentecost and notice how the Sunday readings connect with the Feast days of each week. These arrangements will differ each year, and present new combinations to ponder within the liturgy. Also, for the first time, the traditional octaves are marked on the appropriate feasts. The time after Pentecost is not at all empty. Indeed, each week is packed with meaning and theology, so come and see!

Each day the calendars feature a Saint, feast, or feria of that day – including the commemorated saints featured in niches or coves. Themes from the breviary and from Dom Gueranger's The Liturgical Year are woven throughout the imagery for each week. All of the information contained in the genius of the liturgy is there for you to see– the fast days and commemorations, the classes of feasts, the color of the priest's vestments, and now, the traditional octaves – all available at a glance. The images of the saints are taken from medieval and classical art traditions and are represented together in such a way as to show the communion of the saints in our daily lives. With these calendars on the wall, you will never forget a saint’s feast day again!These calendars are also a wonderful teaching aid to be used in homes, schools and anywhere the faith is taught.

Lovely art, however....
The posters are gorgeous, very beautiful art. I say they would be exceptional to use in a school or class setting. However, I saw the description of "Volume One: The Christmas Cycle", etc. and had worked it up in my mind that it was a **perpetual** calendar, but it is not -- and it's not in my budget to spend over $100 for a single use calendar. (It's a shame because it could so easily have been designed as a forever calendar. I would gladly invest in that.) Glad I didn't run out and buy a poster frame to protect them; after the season they're done.

So far we have only had the Christmas cycle, but this is such a beautiful reminder of the liturgical year! It hangs in our kitchen so that we can refer to it each day. The art work is lovely and I discover something new each time I look at it. Thank you so much for this amazing resource.

Stunning liturgical calendar; what a treasure!
This liturgical calendar is just stunning! I am so pleased to be able to display this in our home. It is very rich both visually and in all the liturgical details. I am planning to purchase the magnetic poster hanger or a poster frame to display these gorgeous pieces so that they last a long time. Our 6 children were very eager to peek at these when I unrolled them, but only a peek as I am waiting to fully enjoy them at the start of Advent. Thank you for these! Already purchased a 2nd set as a gift.

Lovely addition to our daily saint readings
These posters are beautiful. I unrolled them and my children all ran up to see. My six-year-old said they were the most beautiful calendar he has ever seen. So much attention to detail, such lovely artwork. Very pleased with this product.
