Michaela and I go through some beautiful imagery of the saints during this tenth week after Pentecost.
Michaela and I had the honor of being interviewed about this project of ours on a excellent Youtube channel, The Meaning of Catholic, by Timothy Flanders and Kennedy Hall. We had a really wonderful hour and a half conversation. Be sure and subscribe to their channel, they do amazing work. We have even drawn elements in our calendars from things we learned from them, check it out!
Bring the richness of the Liturgical Year into your home
he liturgy of the Church is rich with splendor and conveys to us what we need to find our end in God.
In these days, it isn't so easy to participate in the beauty of the liturgical year for many families, and we want to offer a little something to help with that.
Our desire is to make original art and to bring other resources together and make them easy to access for families to live with the liturgical year of the Church and always know where they are on their journey to Heaven.
Our first works to this end are to illustrate the whole liturgical year and present time not so much in secular terms, but to frame time in sacred terms. Each calendar we illustrate is made for that specific year, and we are building a library of imagery that we can use each year. Our goal is to offer fully printed illustrated calendars each year, and to get there we need your help. We have secured a contract with Sophia Institute Press to publish our calendars starting with Advent, 2021.
The next phase of this project began in late May, and God willing, will result in having our first physical copies published and available to purchase online and in bookstores. We are now focusing on getting our first volume which covers Advent, Christmas and Epiphany finished for publication.
So, if you would like to help us as we prepare for publication, you could donate by clicking on the button at the bottom of our site. We do have a membership we set up, but it is paused for now until Advent. We will be opening enrollment again for Advent and will have several beautiful resources to help bring the liturgy into your home. So, get on our email list to get updates.
We are still in the beginning stages of this work, and we have had a wonderful response from so many families. May you be blessed and God be pleased by our labor and give us what we need to keep going, Deo gracias!
