As I wrote in an earlier post, I am thinking about following the liturgical year during the Year of Faith. The idea was confirmed during my reading of Jesus of Nazareth by Pope Benedict. I can only do a little at a time because the ideas just are bigger than I am. In today’s reading he talks about the disciples on the road to Emmaus who walked with Christ. And the basic gist I was getting for myself is – that’s what you need to do – walk with Christ. It’s a simple thought but hard to do. One way to do it is to walk with Christ by paying attention to the liturgical year, feasts saints – the whole gamut. So, I felt the idea confirmed deep within me. I have a Liturgy of the Hours and perhaps I can carve out time to go to Mass every morning before work. Chores and responsibilities will need to be rearranged. October is coming and I will be ready.
If anyone else does read this – what will you do? Think about it. How will you spend the Year of Faith.
