Dominican Liturgy Publications is pleased to announce the republication of the  Forumularium Absolutionum et Benedictionum ad Usum Ordininis Praedicatorum, which contains dozens of blesssings, absolutions, and other prayer formula of the traditional Dominican Rite.  Those who write me wanting to find, for example, the Dominican Blessing for Rosaries, or that for the Angelic Warfare Cord, may find these, along with blessing of meals, in this volume.

This volume is available in two versions.  One version, is a 6 x 9 inch hardback version with red rubrics;  the other version, is a smaller, inexpensive, pocket book paperback that you can carry with you.

Vespers in Dominican Chant

Dominican Liturgy Publications is pleased to announce that the volume containing the texts and music for singing Vespers for all the solemnities and Sundnays of the year in Dominican Gregorian chant is now available for purchase. The volume, Vesperale ex Liturgia Horarum iuxta Usum Ordininis Praedicatorum, also contains the music for Vespers of all celebrations with the fank of feast proper to the Dominican Order.

This hard-back volume is ideal for Dominican communities and parishes who want to include Gregorian Chant Vespers according to the Liturgy of the Hours to their prayer schedule on a regular basis. If you are a Dominican friar or sister ordering more than 10 copies for your community's use, contact me by email for arranging a bulk discount. The volume may be ordered here.

Those who want to sing the Office according to the traditional Dominican Rite can download or order resources here at Dominican Liturgy on the left sidebar.

I am also happy to announce that the newly revised Dominican Rite Calendar for 2017 now includes the local feasts for all American dioceses where there are priories or communities of Dominican friars. Previously it included only dioceses where there are houses of the Western Dominican Province. This calendar may be downloaded gratis here. If any friar notices a error or something lacking for his province, please let me know and I will correct it.
