I was given the Shorter Christian Prayer book as a gift a few years back (the basic intro version of the Liturgy of the Hours). I’ve been using the standard “Christian Prayer” book here and there recently, since there are copies of it in the chapel at my parish. I’ve really come to appreciate the Proper of the Saints, which is one thing that is largely missing from Shorter Christian Prayer (Shorter Christian Prayer only has a few major saints, ie Sts. Peter and Paul, St. John the Baptist, the major Marian feasts, etc.) I’m wondering, is the proper of the saints, as found in either the longer Christian Prayer book or the complete 4-volume Liturgy of the Hours set, available as a stand-alone volume? Is it possible to buy a little booklet that only has the Proper of the Saints, to use alongside Shorter Christian Prayer as a supplement?
I think it would be useful if such a book existed, and not just for people like me who have “Shorter Christian Prayer”. I know that new saints are added to the calendar every year, and that many recently-canonized saints aren’t in the longer Christian Prayer book, so it would be convenient if you could just buy a new stand-alone Proper of the Saints book every so often, or if your favorite famous deceased Catholic got canonized.
Is anyone aware of such a volume?
