How to Use these Calendars
The following is a brief explanation of how to use the two icon navigation links on the previous page:
Liturgical Calendar: The "Liturgical Calendar" available from the two icons on the previous page offers quick and easy access to the liturgical celebrations for each day. The links embedded in the calendar itself direct you to the daily reading options from the United States Bishop's Conference (USCCB) or iBreviary as well as reflections from My Catholic Life!
Because this calendar uses the very reliable, trustworthy and familiar Google Calendar as a platform, you have the (external) option to have it open in a new window using your mobile device/tablet web browser or installed Google Calendar app for those using who have a Google account. The advantage of this is that it then offers you the option to view our Google Calendar along side your own Google Calendar so as to see it on all your devices. Just open the calendar and click the +GoogleCalendar button on the bottom right corner if you desire this convenient option. For those not using Google Calendar on your devices, no problem. You will simply view our online version and interact with that.
Alternately, if you do not want to use the calendar on your device Google calendar, you may just click the "(in-app)" option to view the calendar within the app.
Also, as an important side note, the content on this calendar strictly follows the USCCB calendar.
Saints: The "Saints / Feasts" link on the previous page directs you to the General Roman Calendar approved by the Holy See (promulgated by Pope Paul VI on February 14, 1969) with the additional feasts approved for use in the United States. The month-by-month icons present you with this "General" Roman Calendar whereas the Google Calendar mentioned above applies that General Roman Calendar (with U.S. additions) to the current liturgical year as approved each year by the U.S. Bishops.
Other Countries: After clicking the "Saints / Feasts" icon on the previous page, you will notice an icon that says "Other Countries." That icon directs you to a list of all counties and their liturgical calendars. Please note that the entries on those national calendars are from Wikipedia. Therefore, please check with your own country's national bishop's conference to confirm their accuracy and to apply the specifics for each current liturgical year. We are sorry we are not able to offer detailed calendars for the specific feasts of every country.
Please note that the "Liturgical Calendar" view is accessible from different icons in this app. Some mobile devices/tablets may not be able to open the links in the liturgical calendar found in the different menus of this app. But all devices should easily be able to use the "Liturgical Calendar" from the (external) icon on the previous page that opens in your device browser.
