Well, I ended up not receiving The Liturgical Year after all. The seller only sent the first book. Needless to say, I got a refund. Now I'm on the hunt for another set. :(

Bummer.

I had an experience a while ago where I purchased a DRB special edition from the 50s from Amazon private seller. They sent me a KJV. Still same artwork and edition type, but wrong text. Sent it back and they gave refund.

Now I've bought The Liturgical Year:P Complete hardcover set, for about what I paid for the first "set", and probably in better condition. Seller's shipping them out today!  ;D Anybody know of a good liturgical calendar online, so I can start with the right volume?

62? 55? Late-mid 1800s when Dom Gueranger was writing?
 :D

Here's the 1962 from OLGS seminary:

I bought a prayer book off Goodwill.

Thanks, Gardener.  :lol:

They have some gems every once in a while, for sure. Got an entire Summa on there for... I dunno, 67 bucks or something?

I was recently given a very nice book that teaches the fundamentals of how to write the letters and sounds of the Arabic language: Alif Baa, Introduction to Arabic Letters and Sounds.

I hope to finally be able to read and write Arabic by the end of the year. It's something that I've been too lazy to do until now.

I used that one for my Intro to Arabic class.

I never kept up with it, but its a beautiful language.

I bought a tiny Confraternity New Testament with a fascinating little intro regarding its translation and earlier translations of the Rheims NT. I've been meaning to make a thread about it, maybe Tuesday. A couple used Catholic books: This is the Mass and Catholic History through Biography. I also got a lovely used kids book called In The Town all Year Round. No words, just beautifully illustrated and it even includes nuns and a monastery! Also got a couple used Spanish books for kids.
"Begin again." -St. Teresa of Avila

My present trial seems to me a somewhat painful one, and I have the humiliation of knowing how badly I bore it at first. I now want to accept and to carry this little cross joyfully, to carry it silently, with a smile in my heart and on my lips, in union with the Cross of Christ. My God, blessed be Thou; accept from me each day the embarrassment, inconvenience, and pain this misery causes me. May it become a prayer and an act of reparation." -Elisabeth Leseur
