Feast Days

This is my favourite time in the Sanctoral Cycle of the Liturgical Year. In these 12 days (September 26 to October 7), there is something to celebrate each day.

In the Liturgical Year, there are 2 cycles: the Temporal Cycle & the Sanctoral Cycle:

The Temporal (temporal = time) Cycle is the cycle or recurring series of the main times or seasons of the Church year: (Advent, Christmastide, Lent, Passiontide, Eastertide, Pentecost, Season of the Year, i.e. Ordinary Time).

The Sanctoral (sanctoral = saints) Cycle is the recurring series of the feasts of the saints.
