2011 Saints Calendar & Planner
TAN Books ©2010
I anxiously awaited my review copy of TAN Book’s 2011 Saints Calendar & Daily Planner, and I have not been disappointed! This spiral-bound 16-month datebook-style planner has everything you need to keep organized and keep the faith.
The simple, yet elegant design of the planner is very appealing. A sturdy four-color cover features Anthony van Dycks’s Saint Ambrose forbids emperor Theodosius I to enter the church. Inside, there is a month-at-a-glance view for each month from September 2010 to December 2011. Each week is presented neatly on a two-page spread with a beautiful vintage, black and white illustration and biography of a saint from that week. Even the devotions for each month are listed.
The inside front cover offers three prayers to get you through any day: The Angelus, The Regina Caeli, and the 3 O’clock Hour of Great Mercy Prayer. A six-page index lists all the Saints’ days and moveable feasts, both new and traditional. These Saints’ days and feasts appear on the actual days in the planner’s weekly view. You will also find four-pages of patron saints. Other goodies that you will have at your fingertips throughout the year are the 33 Doctors of the Church; the 14 Holy Helpers; Holy Days for both 2011 and 2012; fasting and abstinence days; and even Catholic ID cards.
Near the back of the book are year-at-a-glance pages for the entire 16-month span of the planner. These pages are great for long term plans, academic or otherwise. A few lined pages for notes complete the package.
This planner is perfect for moms, students, or anyone who desires to incorporate the rich liturgical year of the Catholic Church into their daily lives.
