om Prosper Guéranger, O.S.B. Abbot of Solesmes 2017 Hardcover Edition – This fifteen volume set has full-color dust jackets, ribbon place markers, over 7418 pages total in 15 volumes This monumental liturgical work, comprising fifteen volumes, was the life-long labor of Benedictine Abbot Dom Guéranger. Writing with the heart of a seraphic contemplative, the holy abbot takes the reader on a daily spiritual pilgrimage through the liturgies of both the East and the West as he immerses the soul into the very life of the ecclesia orans et adorans (the church praying and adoring). The author achieves this by providing daily entries corresponding to the yearly cycle of the Church’s worship in both her divine seasonal feasts and those of her saints. Each day begins with a rich and provocative meditation on the mystery of faith to be celebrated together with the ecclesial history of the same; this is followed by excerpts from the Roman Missal’s Mass of the day (complete with Propers, i.e., Introits, Collects, Offertory prayers, etc ) as well a host of exquisite hymns from the divine office which are coupled with varied and sundry sequences garnered from other ancient Catholic rites. The temporal and geographical universality of the Church is thusly honored; and the oneness of faith amply manifested in light of the axiomatic criterion: Lex orandi est lex credendi (the law of praying is the law of believing). If the essence of the Holy Mass is God, the Incarnate Victim, offering Himself to God, then the liturgy of the Mass is man, in union with Jesus Christ (per ipsum, et cum ipso, et in ipso), offering God to God. Truly, here is a priceless treasure awaiting your holy exploitation. Such was the strategy employed by the father of Saint Therese of Lisieux who made it a daily routine in the Martin home to read to his five daughters from these very volumes. This new edition from Loreto replaces the hardcover set we published in the year AD 2000 in honor of the Jubilee Year of Faith proclaimed by the Holy Father. There are still a few miscellaneous volumes of that hardcover set available, but no complete sets are left. Loreto has spent hundreds of hours repairing broken text in the original publication which wass first prnted in the United States in the 1940’s. At the time of its first publication here the original English text from the original Dublin/London edition was somewhat expurgated in order to pacify some “Americanist” elements here in the US. Loreto has consulted the original English and French editions and we have added in to these volumes all that was deleted from the original Solesmes texts. Thus you have here the complete text as it was intended to be published in a handy and easily readable format. This is a book to be read and studied for a lifetime. Even a once through reading will immeasurably increase your knowledge and love of the history and true liturgical life of the Church. We also highly recommend the companion to this set, Explanation of the Holy Mass. Includes: Propers in Latin and English for every day of the liturgical year (temporal cycle and sanctoral cycle) Assorted Propers and Hymns from liturgies of non-Roman Rites (Byzantine, Chaldean, Maronite, Mozarabic, Ambrosian, etc) Propers of Sunday Vespers Propers of First and Second Vespers for Feast Days Thorough commentary on all of this Introductions to each season of the liturgical year Appropriate morning and evening prayers for each season The best ways to hear Mass during each season The best dispositions of soul for receiving Holy Communion in each season and much, much more!

Little Pictorial Lives of the Saints
This timeless classic is not merely a collection of lives of the saints. Rather, what is offered is the viewpoint that the saints lived their lives according to their state and position in a natural and usual manner, experiencing the same spiritual and physical difficulties and temptations that come to the ordinary man. But they nurtured in their hearts the love of God, which resulted in the cultivation of other virtues. The reason that the Church honours the saints is not just to give them glory, but to hold them up as exemplars for imitation. Many of the saints sanctified themselves by reading the lives of saints. The daily spiritual reflections will be found practical for young and old alike. Hardcover, illustrated, 646 pages.

A Man of Good Zeal

St. Francis was born in 1567 in Savoy, a duchy of the western Alps whose fortunes were largely shaped by developments in neighbouring France, Switzerland, and Italy. Military and political conflicts there were heightened and complicated by religious tensions between Catholics and Protestants, whose leader John Calvin had settled in nearby Geneva and won a following in some districts of Savoy as well. Francis aristocratic father had great plans to position him for rapid advancement in this turbulent setting: He sent the young man to law school, manoeuvered for his appointment as a senator, and chose a noble heiress as his future wife—but God had other plans.

This book tells the inspiring story of how Francis risked his life to win thousands back to the Catholic faith, transformed the Diocese of Geneva as its bishop, and wrote the spiritual classics that eventually led Rome to name him a Doctor of the Church.

Feast Day Cookbook
'Two well-known writers here join forces to describe the special and traditional Catholic feast day dishes of many lands. Whereas the the variety in Christmas, New Year, and Easter observances is known, less familiar are the special foods for "Mothering Sunday," "Maundy Thursday," "Lamas Day." Few know that the origin of the veal cutlet is attributed to St. Ambrose, who thus prepared the meat he gave to the poor; that the favorite sweetmeat of St. Francis of Assisi was Frangipane; or that in Italy a cake called "Sphinx" is traditionally served on St. Joseph\'s Day. We learn the forgotten origin of many well-known dishes, and the family is provided with numerous recipes to restore these wonderful traditional customs. With a table of movable feasts. 208pp'

Book of Feasts and Seasons

The Golden Legend
The Golden Legend
Depicting the lives of the saints in an array of factual and fictional stories, The Golden Legend was perhaps the most widely read book, after the Bible, during the late Middle Ages. It was compiled around 1260 by Jacobus de Voragine, a scholarly friar and later archbishop of Genoa, whose purpose was to captivate, encourage, and edify the faithful, while preserving a vast store of information pertaining to the legends and traditions of the church. In this translation, the first in English of the complete text, William Granger Ryan captures the immediacy of this rich work, which offers an important guide for readers interested in medieval art and literature and, more generally, in popular religious culture. Arranged according to the order of saints' feast days, these fascinating stories are now combined into one volume. This edition also features an introduction by Eamon Duffy contextualizing the work. 788pp
