Transcript of How liturgical time is different from the calendar year:

An Introduction to Liturgy and the Sacraments
comes from the Greek word meaning to "throw together"
A symbol "throws together" the literal meaning of an object or action with other meaning that evokes it
an object or action that points us to another reality
leads us to look beyond our senses to consider a deeper mystery

The establish form f the words and actions for a ceremony that is repeated often
actions usually have a symbolic meaning
the liturgy and the sacraments involve symbols with words and actions we call them rituals

Paschal Mystery
The work of salvation accomplished by Jesus Christ mainly through his passion death resurrection and ascension
usually the core of every sacrament

Efficacious and visible sign of Gods grace instituted by Christ and entrusted to the Church
There are 7 sacraments
baptism, the Eucharist, confirmation, penance and reconciliation, announcing of the sick, matrimony, and holy orders

Sanctifying Grace
the grace that heals our human nature wounded by sin and restore us to friendship with God
gives us a share I'm the divine life of the trinity
a supernatural gift of God
infused in our souls by the Holy Spirit that continues the work of making us holy

Actual Graces
Gods interventions and support for us in the everyday moments of our lives
actual graces are important for conversion and continuing growth in holiness

from the Latin word redemptio meaning "a buying back"

Liturgy of the Hours
also known as the divine office
the official public daily prayer of the Catholic Church
the divine office provides standard prayers scripture readings and reflections At regular hours through out the day
How liturgical time is different from the calendar year:
Liturgical time differs from the calendar year because the liturgical calendar is marked by seasons such as:
- Advent
- Christmas
- Lent
- Easter
- Ordinary Time
The calendar year only has the regular four seasons, twelve months and 365 days. It has holidays and commemorative days but none compare to the special seasons that occur during Liturgical time.
How celebrating different liturgical seasons helps the Christian community to connect with different aspects of the paschal mystery:

Celebrating the different liturgical seasons helps the Christian community to connect with different aspects of the paschal mystery because it gives us a better understanding. We get to understand everything in its full form by celebrating. By dedicating a whole day to a certain special occasion, we get to understand in depth why that day is so important and why we must celebrate.

During Advent we celebrate Christmas. During the time of Advent the Church wears purple as a symbol for waiting.

There are two blocks of Ordinary Time that we celebrate on the liturgical calendar. Ordinary time reflects the life of Jesus
During Lent we celebrate Easter when which we like to recall Christ passion and death on the cross. The liturgical color is purple to symbolize penace.
During Holy Week it is the most intense way that we celebrate the sufferings and death of Christ

The Church's official public, communal prayer.
It is God's work in which people participate
The Church's most important part of the liturgy is the Eucharist
The father,The Son, and The Holy Spirit
They are at work together and through the liturgy the mystery of the holy trinity the central mystery of the Christian faith is more deeply revealed
Liturgical Year
the annual cycle of religious feasts and seasons
forms the content for the church's worship

Eastern Catholic Churches
21 churches of the east
have their own theological liturgical and administrative traditions
They are in union with the universal Catholic Church and her head the bishop of Rome
