The present part of the liturgical year, the Sundays after Epiphany, could also be called the “Let us get ready” season.  After the splendour of the Christmas cycle and before the sombre Season f Septuagesima, preparing us for the penitential practices of Lent begins, we are in a bit of no man’s land. Let us therefore pray that we see the road-map for our journey to heaven when seasonal prayers to aid us start again.

This time, when we are not so busy celebrating, more often not with others, may be a good time to review our New Year resolutions.

The Breviary notes were bought up to date. all dates for the various Seasons are now also current for the year of 2018
