Much of the information on this blog is not original; it is largely taken from Dom Prosper Gueranger’s The Liturgical Year; Alban Butler’s Lives of the Fathers, Martyrs and Other Saints; The Sacramentary, by Bd. Idelphonso Schuster; and The Church’s Year of Grace, by Dr. Pius Parsch. Direct quotations, of course, are set in quotation marks, with a general indication of the source (the name of the author and the title of the work). The brief, daily saint’s notices are quoted from The New Roman Missal by Fr. F. X. Lasance, (cited as NRM).
