A calendar attentive to popular piety

11. A liturgical calendar, because of its nature, does not contain references to pious exercises. The "Calendar of the Holy Year 2000" however, does just that. This is necessary because many of the exercises of the "Jubilee Year" - processions, penitential celebrations, Eucharistic adoration, the Way of the Cross - all have a popular basis.

Thus the Calendar indicates that on the Fridays of Lent and other days when the mystery of the passion of Christ is recalled, the Way of the Cross should be celebrated; on other feasts and memorials of the Mother of the Lord, recitation of the Rosary is recommended.

It is to be hoped that the penitential celebration of the year 2000, over and above personal conversion, will also have as its object the seeking of forgiveness for attitudes and behaviours which need to be converted (cf. TMA nn. 33-36).
