Traditional Liturgical Calendar

Following the Rubrics of Pope St. Pius X
For the Universal Calendar (Roman Rite) of the Church

The "Liturgical Calendar by Month" below is based on the most traditional form of the Roman Rite, before the Conciliar-Bugnini changes of 1950, 1956, 1960, and 1962. It is the one that corresponds to the fully traditional version of the Missale Romanum and the Breviarium Romanum in four volumes.

Immaculate Heart of Mary Church Publications produces, for those that want an annual printed calendar, the best and most complete annual full-color calendar, both in the calendar's daily boxes and in the religious art that accompanies each month. It contains full information about all feasts, commemorations, votive Masses, fasts and abstinence, Ember Days, and more. In the back matter, there is excellently-summarized information about indulgences, fast and abstinence, and other practical matters. This is unquestionably the best and most complete traditional calendar available. $11.00 (includes shipping) from 2200 Smelter Ave., Black Eagle, MT 59414-1213, (406) 452-9021, www.ihm-church.org/publications.html.

The St. Lawrence Press produces the best and most complete annual Ordo available, the Ordo Recitandi Officii Divini Sacrique Peragendi [Order of Reciting the Divine Office and Carrying Out the Sacred Rite], entirely in Latin and in the traditional form. It contains detailed information about the Mass and Divine Office that priests and the most advanced laypeople use, much more complete in its detail than any calendar can give. Additional pages give the rubrics for Solemn Votive Masses, rubrics for conventual Masses and private votive Masses, and the text for the movable feasts sung on Epiphany. $20.00 (includes airmail postage) from 59 Sandscroft Ave., Broadway, Worcestershire WR12 7EJ, UK, or by credit/debit card from www.ordorecitandi.org.uk.
