Rule of Dominican Laity and Priestly Fraternities in Print

I am pleased to announce that the Rule of the Lay Fraternities of St. Dominic, often referred to as the "Dominican Laity" or "Dominican Third Order," and the Rule of the Priestly Fraternities of Saint Dominic are now available in noble hardback editions suitable for use in profession ceremonies.  These hardback versions retail at $14.95.

These editions contain the official Latin text of the Rules and the official English translation on facing pages. We have also made available paperback versions of the two rules for private consultation and study.  They are economically priced at $6.95.

These books may be purchased at Dominican Liturgy Publications. They are the first four titles on the purchase page.  I ask readers who know members of the Dominican Laity or priests in the Priestly Fraternities to let them know about these publications.

Domincian Rite 1939 MIssal Reprinted

A piece of happy news has come to my attention.  A hard-working friar of St. Vincent Ferrer Priory in New York City has gotten out a reprint of the 1939 Dominican Rite Altar Missale.  This Missal is in smaller format than the large 1933 and 1965 Altar versions, as it was intended for travel.  Use of it still requires updating the calendar to 1962 (download this on the left-sidebar of there at Dominican Liturgy), and use of the 1961 revised rubrics for collects as well as a couple other rubrical items, but it is eminently usable and in print!

A friar who uses it tell me that since the paper is thicker than that used in the original printing, so users will probably want to get a book-cover, e.g. one for a large Bible, so that lies flat.  I believe it also needs ribbons and tabs.  You can purchase it at Amazon or at many other used-book sites on the web.
