Spanish. Notebook Size, 17 x 11, laminated. A circular liturgical calendar that begins with the first Sunday of Advent 2023 and is color-coded to season and feast. The Year of Grace 2024 follows the Sunday Year B cycle, beginning on the First Sunday of Advent and ending in November 2024. This year’s calendar for 2024 presents the intriguing storytelling art of Sally Wern Comport. Her illustrations of five conversion stories—five transformative encounters with Jesus—call us to reflect more deeply on our own ongoing conversion to Christ. How are we experiencing Christ’s call in this moment of life? The pictures also invite us to learn more about the way the Church welcomes and forms new Catholic Christians through the newly revised Order of Christian Initiation of Adults. Whether you support the conversion process of seekers from the pews by your participation in the rites that take place at Mass, or are actively involved in RICA (OCIA) in some way, we can all be grateful that this ministry is constantly renewing the Church.
The illustrations of these conversion stories may remind us of various moments in our lives in Christ. At the center of the calendar, Zacchaeus is looking down at Jesus from high up in the tree where he has climbed to get a better look at him. This is the moment he hears Jesus calling him, and when his life is beginning to change forever (Luke 19:1-10). In the four corners we see other people who are being transformed: the woman at the well by conversation (John 4), the man born blind through a healing (John 9:1–12), Mary, Martha, and the crowd who witness the raising of Lazarus (John 11:1–45), and the first disciples as they are called by Jesus (Matthew 4:18–22). Each one hears a call or attracted or compelled in some way. El año de gracia 2024 follows the Sunday Year B cycle and the Weekday Year II cycle, beginning on December 3, 2023 (First Sunday of Advent) and ending on Saturday, November 30, 2024.
LTP’s circular display of the liturgical year makes its key features easily understandable. We can see at a glance the liturgical seasons in their characteristic colors, Sundays on the outer rim, and the days and weeks radiating from the center. (©2023)
