Hi,

I have the Verbum 360 Training Videos and one of the approaches mentioned was using the Go Box to open  the Liturgical Layout for a particular liturgical day.  So if you wanted to open the liturgical layout for Easter or Pentecost, you could type either Easter or Pentecost in the Go Box and it would generate a drop down list with specific upcoming dates.  The dates indicate when those feasts are celebrated and if you click on an Easter or Pentecost with a date, the liturgical layout would open.

When I type Easter or Pentecost into the Go box, there are no dates showing that indicate a Liturgical Entry.

Did something change or is my software not working?

Thanks,

Mike

I believe that this is the result of it not applying past dates e.g. Friday in the second week of ordinary time does not work but Friday in the tenth week of ordinary time does. The lectionaries need updated and we have been assured that it will happen. Unfortunately we do not know when.

I would prefer to see the Lectionary and the Ordo separated breaking this dependencies and allowing for historical lectionaries ... but I haven't won that battle yet.

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."
