Just in time for January 10th, I have uploaded two new episodes in The Lives of the Saints = Second Series. Episode Five honors the Blessed William Laud, Archbishop of Canterbury and Martyr in the 17th C. at the start of the English Civil War. Episode Six recognizes the life and contributions of one of the great Cappadocian Fathers of the 4th Century, Gregory of Nyssa (pronounced NISS-Uh).
The next episode in the series, honoring St. Anthony of Egypt will be available on or before his Feast Day, January 17th.
The AIC Bookstore grew by one book this week with the publication of The 1928 Book of Common Prayer – Service Book Edition in both paperback and Kindle Editions. These are linked from the AIC Web Site. The 1928 B.C.P. Service Book Edition includes the text of the church’s primary liturgies: Morning Prayer, Evening Prayer, Penitential Office (Ash Wednesday), Litany, and Holy Communion, plus the entire text of the Psalter; plus the collection of Prayers and Thanksgivings and Family Prayers. This paperback version is intended to help new parishes put prayers books in the pews at a cost about half the average price of the standard edition.
Yet another addition to the Bookstore advanced a step this week with the submission of a a proof edition of The Writing Prophets of the Old Testament. The final version includes 62 illustrations presented in 128 full color pages. The Companion Video series is now in production, with the first episode expected before the end of January.
