The paschal mystery is the heart of the liturgical year. Celebrated most intensely during the Easter Triduum, it is also the heartbeat of all the other seasons. How does each season celebrate a particular aspect of this mystery of our dying and rising in Christ? How do we keep this experience the focus of our celebrations all year long? Background to the seasons, practical applications of principles, and ideas for preparing the church makes Preparing the Liturgical Year a productive resource.

Preparing the Liturgical Year is designed to help communities review their basic patterns of common worship so that these patterns may be effective in renewing the Church's sense of common history, identity, and mission. Presented in two volumes, the books' sequence and their chapters is designed to help you establish priorities. Volume 1 first examines the paschal mystery, then the two principal celebrations of the year—Sunday and the Paschal Triduum—are studied. Only in light of these two feasts can we reflect on the liturgical seasons of Lent-Easter and Advent-Christmas as found in Volume 2.

Discussion questions and a summary conclude each chapter. Chapters include "The Paschal Mystery," "The Centrality of Sunday," "The Paschal Triduum," "Glory Days," "The Easter Season," "The Advent-Christmas Season," and "A Timeless Event Celebrated in Time."
