Just in time for the start of the liturgical year, the Society of Saint Pius X publishes the most complete liturgical calendar online. This calendar follows the liturgical books of 1962 which Pope Benedict XVI authorized for use in the Universal Church. The Society of Saint Pius X (SSPX) offers this service to all priests, to those who serve at the altar and in the sacristy, as well as to all those that are attached to the Church's traditional liturgy.

The month of November is traditionally dedicated in the Catholic Church to honoring the dead and relieving the sufferings of the souls in purgatory.
On this occasion the Church not only multiplies the number of Masses on November 2, All Souls Day, but also encourages the faithful to honor their graves and to have Masses said for their deceased ones throughout this month. Indulgences are attached to this pious works.
Our Lady of the Snows is an old name for St Mary Major, a Church that is a Major Papal Basilica in Rome and the biggest Marian Shrine of ancient Christianity, being originally constructed by Pope Liberius around the year 360.
It was embellished with beautiful mosaics of Mary and Christ in commemoration of the Council of Ephesus in 431. There, in the presence of the Papal legate, Catholic Orthodoxy triumphed over heresy in the great cry of dogmatic Faith, “holy Mary Mother of God” – Theotokos.
