As a representation of human experience, the liturgical year has quirks and oddities: the year may be understood to have several beginnings; the date of Easter is moveable based on the full moon determined by complex computation; the central celebration is the Triduum, one day made of three; Easter comes in the spring in the northern hemisphere but in the autumn in the southern hemisphere. The year has a distinctive shape: a circle with a destination, an ascending spiral, set out in such a way that the year is a work of art that makes moral demands on those who live it, until in a wonderful transfiguration we, together with all creation, are recreated in the image that God has of each of us.

Keywords:   spiral, art, image of God, theosis, transfiguration
