Liturgy of the Home. Fiat: Traditional Catholic Planner. Manchester, NH: Sophia Institute Press, 2022. The planner is available in two sizes: full 8.5 x 11 inches ($44.99) or compact 5.5 x 8.5 inches ($37.99). Available from the publisher.
“What this planner offers in way of a connecting point with the true, good, and beautiful, is something that we want to bring to as many people as possible,” shared Kateri Lawless, in her Liturgy of the Home blog.
Liturgy of the Home’s mission is to bring the Faith into your daily planning to help you stay grounded amidst the chaos of life. Indeed, the designers of the bestselling Illustrated Liturgical Calendars developed the Fiat: Traditional Catholic Planner to meet—and surpass—daily Faith and practical needs.
“We have been completely astounded by the impact our calendars have had over the past year, and are now beyond excited to launch our first planner!,” Lawless added.
Much more than your typical weekly planner, this exquisite calendar includes full-color illustrations for every feast, large paintings for each month’s dedication, a prayer-of-the-month, Scripture verses, and quotes from the saints.
The calendar features 14 months—the full Liturgical Year—which includes November and December 2022. So, if you order it now you can begin planning for the holiday season.
The planner unveils the grandeur and mystery of the Liturgical Year according to the traditional 1962 calendar. It indicates days of fasting and abstinence, First Fridays and Saturdays, Holy Days of Obligation, Ember Days, and primary secular holidays. Also contained are the classes of feasts and vestments’ colors.
“The weekly spreads have a very classic layout and yet the art elevates it to something that has never been offered in a planner before,” continued Lawless, “With two spreads for every week, this planner offers more than your basic weekly planner in terms of functionality as well, providing a weekly goals list, habit tracker, to-do, meal planning, and more.”
Other bonuses include a monthly goal-setting page, spaces for notes and things to remember or follow-up on, and customizable charts (e.g. for budgeting).
If you’re looking for a planner that combines authentic Catholic spirituality, inspiration, and space for your organizational needs, Fiat: Traditional Catholic Planner is for you.
Reviewers enthused: “I am inspired by the art and extensive lists of feasts and saints.” “I love all of the Catholic features like prayers and lists of habits to develop (almost like a rule of life). There are so many great practical features and spaces for routine duties too.” “I especially liked the quotes on good quality literature and the place to track books read.”
