More Practical things

A friend of the Saint Lawrence Press has kindly offered some more 'cheat' sheets after reading my post on the cheat sheet for the Sacred Triduum.

Br. Alexis Bugnolo has produced a 'cheat sheet' for Mattins and Lauds, containing the Apostles Creed in Latin, Venite exsultemus, Te Deum and the Dominical Lauds psalms as used on Sundays per annum and feasts.

The other sheet gives the prayers before and after the Hours.

Br. Alexis wrote recently:

'On the Feast of St. Pius V, May 5, 2009, His Excellency Monsignor Ignazio Zambito, Bishop of Patti, Sicily, gave Br. Alexis Bugnolo (a former member of the Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate) the go ahead to form a community of traditional Franciscan religious and to accept vocations (priests & brothers). The community's charism will be the unmitigated observance of the Rule of St. Francis, according to the Pontifical Decrees of Popes Nicholas III, Clement V, and Bl.Innocent XI; and be dedicated to the exclusive use of the pre-bugninian liturgical books of the Order of Friars Minor. For more information please contact Br. Bugnolo by surface mail: via Umberto I, 261; 98030 Floresta (ME), Italia.'

Br. Alexis is fluent in both English and Italian. He has specifically requested that if anyone is interested in his community they contact him by writing to the address given above.

[Postcode above corrected - Thank you Br. Alexis]

Dear Brother Alexis,

May God bless and prosper your work! For my part, I will remember you at the Holy Sacrifice and will be sure to mention your congregation to any young men discerning such a vocation. Vivas, crescas, floreas!

In Christo, Fr. Capreolus

Thank you father...prayers are needed most of all, since God doesnot vouchsafe that special light and strength to a vocation, without such prayers!
