About-

The title of this book, Very Short Reflections—for Advent and Christmas, Lent and Easter, Ordinary Time and Saints—through the Liturgical Year, accurately describes its contents. Chapter 1 presents a short reflection for every day of the Advent Season. Chapter 2 does the same for every day of the Christmas season. Lent is covered in chapter 3, the Sacred Paschal Triduum in chapter 4, and the fifty days of the Easter season in chapter 5. Chapter 6 covers Ordinary Time. And chapter 7 presents a short reflection for every solemnity, feast, and memorial of saints, whose special day falls during the liturgical year.

The short reflections are based on sets of Mass texts—Entrance Antiphon, Collect, Prayer over the Offerings, Preface, Communion Antiphon, Prayer after Communion, and Prayer over the People—presented for every day of Advent and Christmas, Lent and Easter, Ordinary Time and saints in The Roman Missal. The reflection identifies the theme of the day and presents how it is manifested in the Mass texts. These very short reflections are designed to expose to the reader the liturgical spirituality that emanates from the Mass texts.

Endorsements & Reviews-

“The title of this liturgical calendar doubles also as its table of contents. The author distills the themes of daily liturgy in such a way as to afford the reader a contemplative experience of liturgical spirituality. The approach is at once simple and profound, accommodating both the neophyte and the advanced in faith. This welcome addition to the RCIA library effectively blends liturgical inspiration into the context of daily living.”

—Pauline Nugent, CCVI, Professor of Classics and Biblical Hebrew, Missouri State University



“As a priest of thirty-four years, and campus minister for twenty-seven, it always helps when a writer can get you to examine things you’ve seen many times before in a new light! Fr. Mark Boyer doesn’t usually rattle my assumptions, but he often gets me to look at things from an angle I might have previously overlooked. His style reads quickly; however, the thoughts he sometimes generates can often lead to deeper thinking and spiritual reflection. In short, he often provides food for my soul; for this, I am grateful! As one of my brothers in ministry in southern Missouri, I am pleased he has spent so many years of his efforts in writing. It has helped along the journey.”

—J. Friedel, Former Chair of the Executive Board of the Catholic Campus Ministry Association, Certified Campus Minister, and pastor (and wicked step-brother)
