Follow the Byzantine Calendar

Byzantine Catholics enjoy a rich liturgical life.

For an even more fruitful liturgical life, try to follow the Latin calendar as well as the Greek calendar.  You will notice at once how rich the Byzantine rite is by their liturgical calendar.

Once when I was a kid, an old lady told me in a sacristy that the greatest travesty of the liturgical renewal of the 1960s was the loss of the calendar.

Follow the saints.  Read the lives of the saints through the liturgical calendars.
