Celebrating new saints not in my old LOTH


#1

Friends,

Today is the obligatory Memorial of St. Andrew Dung-Lac and his companions. I have a 4-volume Liturgy of the Hours from 1976, so this feast is simply not present in my book. There seems to be a proper reading at the Office of Readings, and a proper prayer - but I have no access to them in the breviary.

Can I use the 2nd reading & concluding prayer from the Common of Martyrs, and still be in communion with the universal prayer of the Church for St. Andrew and his companions?

There’s actually a supplement to the LOTH that has those saints. But otherwise you can use the commons, including the collect in the common of several martyrs. Or find the collect on-line, print it out, and stick it in your breviary for future use. The second reading equally can be taken from the Common.
