DAYS OF THE LORD, Volume 1 (Advent & Christmas)
This series is an excellent guide to the riches of the Lectionary. More than a thorough commentary on the readings, more even than a reflection on the liturgical seasons, these books comprehend the totality of the liturgical year. Readers will gain not only a greater understanding of the liturgical year, its structure and its meaning, but a deeper appreciation of the prayer life that the liturgical year provides. This book provides an understanding of the relationship of all the readings in a given Lectionary to one another, as well as the relationship of each liturgy with what has preceded it and what follows it. Well done. 346 pp.
