To assist in this time, St. Therese Institute would like to share some additional resources to keep your Sabbath day holy.

  • Magnificat has made available a free, online subscription to their monthly publication of daily prayer, mass readings, and reflections by saints and pertinent theologians. A free PDF of the Sunday mass readings (using the NAB translation), with reflections, a form of liturgy of the hours, etc. is available at this link: ENGLISH https://us.magnificat.net/free  FRENCH https://canada.magnificat.net/
    As quoted from their website, Magnificat is:
    "... a spiritual guide to help you develop your prayer life, grow in your spiritual life, find a way to a more profound love for Christ, and participate in the holy Mass with greater fervor."
    Magnificat is a monthly publication designed for daily use, to encourage both liturgical and personal prayer. It can be used to follow daily Mass and can also be read at home or wherever you find yourself for personal or family prayer."
  • Another good resource is Universalis.com. This is a free web resource that contains the Liturgy of the Hours and the daily mass readings with helpful instructions and various service. As well, one can use Canada's lectionary by selecting it in the settings.
  • Also, the Canadian Council of Catholic Bishops has published a complete calendar of readings for the 2020-2021 church year (downloadable PDF).

It is our hope that these resources may support your life of prayer and devotion.
