Understanding Liturgical Time
Have you ever wondered why the date of Easter changes every year or why there are so many different liturgical seasons? When you see time the way that God intended, a brand new portion of the sacramental reality will be revealed — from the way that light hits the Earth on the Autumnal Equinox to the way hours were counted in the time of Christ. In this course, you will learn about time and light, the origins and developments of the major seasons and feasts, and the development of the Liturgy of the Hours which perfectly line up with specific moments in Christ's Passion.
