"The liturgical year provides a structure for the Church's collective memory, a way of consecrating our human experience of time in the celebration of God's work - in Christ and in human beings made holy through Christ.
This act of Christian remembering has proved, over time, to have an extraordinary depth. Through the structuring of our Christian memory, the past is able to come into our present."
