3.27 Koje vrste blagdana postoje tijekom godine?
Liturgijska godina započinje Došašćem i božićnim razdobljem. Korizma je razdoblje posta i pripreme za važan blagdan, kojeg slavimo na Uskrs, tj. Isusovo uskrsnuće. Uskrsno vrijeme završava nakon Uzašašća, na Duhove.
U „vremenu kroz godinu“ (ostatak liturgijske godine) pozvani smo naučiti živjeti sve više poput Božje djece, nakon što smo proslavili glavne blagdane usredotočene na Isusa. Postoje i blagdani kojima se slavi Marija, sveci i anđeli. Posljednje nedjelje liturgijske godine slavimo blagdan Krista Kralja. Božje pravilo se ne temelji samo na zakonima, već na ljubavi.

The Wisdom of the Church
What is the liturgical year (the Church year)?
The liturgical year, or the Church year, superimposes the mysteries of the life of Christ—from his Incarnation to his second coming in glory—on the normal course of the year. The liturgical year begins with Advent, the time of waiting for the Lord, and has its first high point in the Christmas season and its second, even greater climax in the celebration of the redemptive suffering, death, and Resurrection of Christ at Easter. The Easter season ends with the feast of Pentecost, the descent of the Holy Spirit on the Church. The liturgical year is repeatedly interrupted by feasts of the Lord, Mary and the saints, in which the Church praises God’s grace, which has led mankind to salvation. [Youcat 186]
This is what the Popes say
After the Easter Season that ended last Sunday with Pentecost, the Liturgy has returned to "Ordinary Time". This does not mean, however, that Christians must be less any committed: indeed, having entered divine life through the sacraments, we are called daily to be open to the action of divine Grace, to progress in love of God and of neighbour. [Pope Benedict, Angelus, 30 May 2010]
