The Liturgical Year, Joan Chittister
Not a “How To” but a “What and Why” book. I appreciated the author’s explanation of the origins of the Liturgical Year, her definition of “liturgical spirituality” and her pithy observations throughout; such as “ to live life for lesser things is to risk not living at all” and “for life to becomes its own exhilarant, we must learn to live it consciously, beyond the visible to the meaningful”.
This is a book for those oriented toward the abstract vs. the concrete.
