Handbook Saints

| | Comments (2)

Occasionally there are feasts during Lent when the readings and prayers from the feast are used instead of that Lenten weekday. Two such feasts are approaching, St. Joseph and Annunciation.

Here are the latest additions to the Handbook for those feasts.

The Handbook can be found here.

Anybody out there using these Lenten reflections?

thanks for these feasts added.

I don't know what to do about saints whose memorials are in Lent.

Katharine Drexel (March 3) is a favorite of mine, and an important saint for the US.

I'm sure others are looking for how to combine our ancestors and this season.

For the published versions of the handbook, you might want to indicate that the solemnities of Joseph and the Annunication get transferred to the following Monday when they fall on a Sunday, or, for the Annunciation, it is transferred to Monday of the 2nd week of Easter if it falls in Holy Week. (as the days of Holy Week and all the days of Easter Week are of the highest rank.)

Thanks Maureen. I am not sure how to incorporate the other memorials. This little book is heavily centered on the readings of the day.
