The Introduction reminds us first that we are children of the earth, dependent upon it and responsible for it. We are also baptized children of God, called to make a pilgrimage through this world in which our baptism has made us exiles, toward home. This eschatological emphasis is found throughout the liturgical year and informs each successive season of the Church's year. This year, as the Church has shaped it through the centuries may be regarded as a wonderful work of art, a collaborative achievement. To enter and benefit from this collective composition a receptive humility is required of those who seek to understand.
