These volumes contain the
proper offices for the Franciscan saints
celebrated throughout the year. The various
Orders and Congregations in the Catholic
Church are permitted to celebrate Masses and
the Divine Office in memory of certain
saints and blesseds within their Orders and
Congregations. Many of these are not
celebrated in the general Church calendar.
Using these Office books will enable you to
commemorate the lives of and solicit the
prayers of such saints as Blessed Angela of
Foligno, Saint Hyacinth of Mariscotti, Saint
Francis Mary of Camporosso, and many others
with whom you may like to make acquaintance.
The Offices are approved by the Sacred
Congregation of Divine Worship for all
Franciscan Orders, religious and lay.
To learn about a disciplined, Catholic,
joyful Rule of Life that can help you draw

of Penitents, linked to in the top link box.
