Sourcebook for Sundays, Seasons, and Weekdays: The Almanac for Pastoral Liturgy is the essential and trusted resource to help you prepare the liturgy for all seasons of the liturgical year, each Sunday, solemnity, feast, memorial, optional memorial, and seasonal weekday! If you are a priest or deacon, liturgist or worship team member, religious educator or looking for more information about Catholic liturgy, this publication will be an invaluable tool!
This year’s book is for Year B, Weekday Year II. It begins with November 27, 2011 the First Sunday of Advent, and continues through December 1, 2012, the last day of Ordinary Time.
Sourcebook for Sundays, Seasons, and Weekdays is organized in two user-friendly sections: The Season and The Calendar. General material relevant to the whole period is included in the Season section. You will learn more about the meaning of the season, the saints who are honored, the liturgical books, the liturgical environment, the liturgical music, and how to bring the liturgy into your homes! Specific to this year are notes on the Gospel according to Mark, the primary evangelist for Year B. The Calendar section is a straightforward almanac, and the only resource, which consistently provides pastoral reflections and ideas for each day of the liturgical year. You can look up any day of the liturgical year and find basic liturgical information as well as ideas for how to celebrate the liturgy.
