Proprium Breviarii for the Order of Malta

A knight of the Irish Association of the Order of Malta has compiled and published a beautiful edition of the Prorprium Breviarii, or Order of Malta Breviary. Here is a description
Designed, compiled and produced especially for members of the Soveriegn Military Order of Malta, this simple prayer book is intended primarily for those members who wish to pray a form of the Liturgy of the Hours which includes the Offices of, and identifies us with the Saints of our Order in the knowledge that we are part of a supranational community, praying each day with our brothers and sisters throughout the world who are also praying the Order’s Office. Included with the Little Office of Our Lady, the Common and Proper Offices and Compline are Anthems to Our Lady and the Te Deum, together with the Litany of our Saints, the Daily Prayer and short biographies, which includes our most recent saints – Saint Nonius, Blessed John XXIII and Blessed Karl of Austria. The text at the beginning of each Office is illuminated with coloured versals, each supported by various plants and flowers. The Breviary is a limited editition and publication is limited to 500 copies. This is a strictly non-commercial venture and all profits from the sale of the Breviary are donated to the Holy Family Hospital, Bethlehem. Each volume is individual numbered and signed. Your contribution to this project through the purchase of the Breviary will help introduce the recitation of the Divine Office to many members of our Order.
