The Liturgical Year

«And God saw all the things he had created and behold they were very good. And there was an evening and there was a morning. The sixth day … And God blessed the seventh day and hallowed it; Because on it he rested from all these works which He made» (Gen. 1:31, 2:3). In this way man is called by God that he too may sanctify the seventh day and participate in rejoicing for the goodness of creation.
