1 The fourth edition of The Catholic Source Book (Harcourt Religion Publishers) provides this list. The feast of the Holy Family is celebrated in December, and Holy Thursday can fall in March or April; otherwise, each liturgical feast indicated above occurs in that month.  Other books may have other lists—there is no official, worldwide linking of feasts and months. In any case, this custom reminds us that all time belongs to God, is a gift from God, and should be used for God’s honor and glory. (St. Anthony Press, December 2013 Page 51)
