Jan 3, 2016
We still have a few copies left of our two beautiful traditional Catholic wall calendars for 2016. The first is black and white and contains full liturgical rubrics for every day of the year, making it easy to know not only what feastday it is, but also what the commemorations are at Mass and what colour vestments the priest will be wearing. Days of fast are marked and instructions are provided on the rules of fast and other important things every Catholic should know. Our liturgical calendar is $10.95 with free shipping.
Our second calendar is full-colour on glossy card stock, and features images of the cathedrals of Europe. It contains the feastday for every day of the year, together with very clear color markings for holydays of obligatio and days of fast, making it a quick and easy reference to know what your duties are on any given day. National holidays for the United States are also included. Our colour calendar is $14.95 with free shipping.
Both calendars are available at Confraternity Books, the online bookstore of the Guild of St. Peter ad Vincula.

Prayer of Restoration
To be Recited Daily
Let us pray.
Almighty and Everlasting God, * we beseech thee to restore unto this world of sin * that faith which St. Peter thy first Pope and Prince of the Apostles * did once humbly confess; * and commit once more, * through thine infinite mercy, * the government of thy Church * unto a worthy Vicar of thy Son; * that he may be bestowed with such increase of all virtues * as may be pleasing in thy sight; * and that being so adorned, * he may lift from the Church and from all nations * the heavy weight of heresy * that presseth down upon us; * and rendering Christendom once more acceptable in thy sight, * may bring at length all nations * to render due homage at the feet of their divine King, * even Jesus Christ, thy Son our Lord, * who liveth and reigneth with thee, * in the unity of the Holy Ghost, * ever one God, * world without end. * Amen.
