  • Anyone on God's green earth have any idea where I can get one?
    "I receive Thee, redeeming Prince of my soul. Out of love for Thee have I studied, watched through many nights, and exerted myself: Thee did I preach and teach. I have never said aught against Thee. Nor do I persist stubbornly in my views. If I have ever expressed myself erroneously on this Sacrament, I submit to the judgement of the Holy Roman Church, in obedience of which I now part from this world." Saint Thomas Aquinas the greatest Doctor of the Church

    I had a 1936 edition that I found in a thrift store in Washington D.C.  It is currently in the possession of an older priest who uses it.  I have found numerous pre-1955 missals, prayer books, etc. in thrift stores.  For some reason, many in and around Washington and Baltimore.
     St. Francis Xavier threw a Crucifix into the sea, at once calming the waves.  Upon reaching the shore, the Crucifix was returned to him by a crab with a curious cross pattern on its shell.

  • Good luck in finding one. I am sure the older breviaries are a lot better than the modernist ones and the ones the SSPX uses. I read that John XXIII changed the breviary to make it more modernist early in his reign and I think that version is the one the SSPX uses, just like they use the more modernist John XXIII 1962 Missal.

  • There is one from 1928 on Ebay right now for a starting bid of $15.00 and no one has bid yet.  The bidding ends tomorrow.

  • That's true.  They can be found on ebay.  I, too, would love to have it in book form.  If you can understand Latin, you're in pretty good shape.  However, if you are looking for one that has both Latin and English, then you are looking at a big price.  I have a pre-Pius XII diurnal from a convent that is in both English and Latin.  But if I want to pray the entirety, I just end up going to divinum officium or breviary.net.

  • Thank you very much for these thoughtful responses.

    Are any of the above suggestions of the full 3 volume set variety?

    Here is a link from Abe books.  It actually comes in 4 volumes.  I think you want one before about 1945 or so.  They changed the Psalms after that and many sets do not use the Vulgate during that time period.

    The list is from high price to low, so you would have to wade through the really old ones first.

    I would love the English and Latin Version.  I wish I was more familiar with Latin!

    But I know praying in Latin is not a waste even if I don't understand all the words.  God does!  In fact I think Latin is his first Language.

    Perhaps someone out there knows about a good CD from which one can learn liturgical Latin.

    You can use a Latin Breviary and also use these websites for the English/Latin:
    http://divinumofficium.com/cgi-bin/horas/officium.pl

    This one you need to subscribe for, I think, $24 a year.

    It's worth it to subscribe to the above breviary.net as well as making use of divinum officium.  There are times when the latter is down, and then what do you do?  Plus, breviary.net has wonderful pictures.  I use to go there often before they changed their format, because I could then use the various commons and also read all the matin readings for ferials along with the ones for the saints during times of Lent and Advent, but that option is no longer available.   They said that they were trying to make their breviary more user friendly, and I guess you could say that it is now.
