31st January


The Church established public feasts to commemorate the great deeds of our loving God, which either provided for her foundation or for her splendour. Similarly, all Christians have experienced special actions from God, which brought to their soul salvation or an increase in grace. Christians could imitate the Church profitably if they celebrated their private events of grace with private solemnity, in the same way as the Church celebrates her public feasts with public solemnity. The most important private celebration should be the anniversary of their Baptism.
