news from Baronius Press: Roman Breviary - Breviarium Romanum

This just in from Baronius Press:

Many of you have been eagerly awaiting the release of the Roman Breviary which has been plagued with constant delays and we are very grateful for all the emails and prayers of support that we have received.

The good news is, that after a long search, we have found a censor who has kindly agreed to undertake the tedious and very responsible task of carefully checking through our work to ensure that a Concordat Cum Originali can be granted. We ask you to join us in praying for the censor, that the work is completed as quickly as possible.

Once the Concordat Cum Originali is granted, the Breviary will be sent to the printers. At this point we will post full information on our website detailing costs and how to pre-order.

  • 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) 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.
