Catholic Liturgy Calendar 2013

2012-2013 is liturgical year C. The feast days of saints celebrated in one country are not necessarily celebrated everywhere. For example, a diocese or a country may celebrate the feast day of a saint of special importance there (e.g., St. Patrick in Ireland, Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexico, St. Elizabeth Ann Seton in the United States). Likewise, a particular religious institute may celebrate its founder or members of the institute, even if that saint is not listed on the universal calendar or is included in it only with a lower rank. The information shown below agrees with the General Roman Calendar and contains only those celebrations that are intended to be observed in the Roman Rite in every country of the world.

Liturgical Year 2012-2013

The following is an animated image of the liturgical year 2012-2013 according to the Roman Catholic rite. It's called "liturgical year" or "Christian Year" at the time ranging from the first Sunday of Advent and the last week in Ordinary Time during which the Church celebrates the whole mystery of Christ from his birth to his second coming. One can say that the liturgical year consists of two times: strong times and ordinary time. The strong times are, Advent, Christmas, Lent and Easter, during which a particular mystery of salvation is celebrated. Ordinary Time, in turn, does not hold any particular mistery, but rather the same mystery of Christ in its fullness, especially on Sundays. Ordinary Time is divided into two parts throughout the liturgicaL year and in total lasts 33 or 34 weeks. Note that in the image below the corresponding date of 2013-01-01 has been highlighted.
