For Catholics, many days of the calendar year are a cause for celebration. Nearly every day marks the feast day of a saint — a day when that saint’s holy life and deeds are remembered. Holy days of obligation (according to the Ordo 2021-2022), which means that Catholics are obliged to attend Mass that day, are marked with an asterisk (*).
"At God’s approach, the virtuous rejoice, exulting and singing for joy."
Sweet as the warbling of a bird,
Sweet as a Mother’s voice;
So sweet to me is thy dear name;
It makes my soul rejoice.
Bright as the glittering stars appear,
Bright as the moonbeam’s shine,
So bright in my mind’s eye is seen
Thy loveliness divine!

Year of St. Joseph:
December 8, 2020 - December 8, 2021 was a year dedicated to St. Joseph, husband of Mary and earthly father of Jesus Christ.
Mary, how sweetly falls thy name
On my enraptured ear;
Oft do I say in holy love
Thy name when none are near.
Sing oh, my lips, and loudly proclaim,
Oh Mary, my Mother, how sweet is thy name.
