2017 Traditional Catholic Calendar
Full-Colour Traditional Liturgical Catholic Calendar,
published by the Guild of St. Peter ad Vincula
Beautifully produced on glossy paper, this calendar's theme is "The Churches of Italy"—your wall will be tastefully decorated with twelve beautiful colour images of some of the most beautiful and famous cathedrals and basilicas in the very hub of Catholic Europe.
More importantly, the calendar provides all the information you need to know about the feast for each day of the liturgical cycle, and clearly shows the holydays of obligation and days of fast. By popular request we have also included the civil holidays for the United States. Our calendar has been created for ease of use, and you can see at a glance what feast day it is, which Mass will be offered, and the order of the commemorations. Thanks to the subtle colour backgrounds and banners, that same quick glance at the calendar will tell you whether it is a holiday of obligation, whether you are obliged fast or abstain from meat, and provide any other items of information about the feast—all you need to follow the Church's precepts of worship for the coming year.
With introductory and closing pages that contain other important information, such as the tables of fast and abstinence, and of the dates of movable feasts for 2017, this calendar is designed to provide you with a quick and easy way to connect to the Church's year and to participate fully in the moving flow of the liturgical seasons.
Our calendar contains none of the anti-Catholic reforms of the freemason Bugnini that were introduced in the 1950s and early 1960s as part of the gradual destruction of the Catholic liturgy. In an age where so many "traditional" calendars try to confuse you with false information (missing feast days, suppressed octaves and vigils, new and suspect feasts, and so on) you can be sure our calendar is fully and authentically traditional, and will provide you with the legitimate Catholic feast days celebrated through the ages by countless saints and faithful. It is the same calendar we follow on our Breviary website, so you know it's authentically Catholic and traditional.
We have kept the price of our colour calendars the same as last year, $14.95 with free shipping anywhere in the United States. Don't make the mistake of so many people last year who left it too late to order and so missed out on the opportunity to have one of these beautiful calendars hanging in their home. Place your orders quickly to make sure you don't lose out. They make excellent gifts for Catholic friends and family members, and this year for the first time we are offering discounts if you buy in bulk.
Don't forget—by providing these calendars as gifts, you are fulfilling a spiritual work of mercy, instructing those who seek to know more about the grace-filled liturgical cycle of the Church, and who would otherwise never be aware of their sacred Catholic duties of fasting and attending Mass.
