Baronius Update

From the site:

A good progress has been made on the much anticipated Roman Breviary and initial proofreading of the text has started. We are now in a position to show what it will look like, and some of the unique features it contains. When published, it will be the finest traditional Roman Breviary in both Latin and English in over 40 years.

  • It is based on the popular three-volume Collegeville Breviary in Latin & English, originally published in 1963.
  • Follows the text and rubrics promulgated by Blessed Pope John XXIII – the form of the traditional Breviary approved in Pope Benedict XVI’s Summorum Pontificum.
  • St Jerome’s traditional Gallican psalter from the Vulgate is given in the text of all the hours.
  • Scriptural texts in English follow the Confraternity translation (a 1940s revision of Challoner’s Douai-Rheims Bible), which have been thoroughly revised to conform to the Vulgate text.
  • Extracts from the Rituale Romanum (including the most commonly used litanies) in English & Latin given in an appendix.
  • Contains Penitential Psalms and the Office for the Dead.
  • Prayer card to include common prayers in Latin and English.
  • A copy of Learning the Breviary will be included.
