Mary’s Little Remnant Catholic Calendar
The current nominal-Catholic universal calendar is null and void because apostate antipopes promulgated it. (See RJMI book Non-Catholics Cannot Hold Offices in the Catholic Church.) The universal calendar from the time of the last true pope, Honorius II (d. 1130), is still in force. However, I have not yet discovered a calendar from that time period. But even if I had, I would still have the right to make a calendar for my religious order, just as the Benedictines and the Uniate Eastern Church had the right to make their own calendars. Of course, this requires papal approval if possible. When it is not possible to get papal approval in the foreseeable future and there is good reason to revise the calendar, the law of epikeia allows me to revise the calendar for my religious order. Epikeia allows exemptions from non-dogmatic laws without the need of confirmation or a dispensation from a competent authority in emergency situations. (See RJMI book Exemptions from the Law.) The emergency situation is that the current null-and-void calendar contains the following problems: It contains anti-saints, irreverent rankings of some holy things, out-of-sequence events (which undermines the Biblical record of these events), hardly any Old Testament saints, and does not contain some New Testament era saints that should be honored. It contradicts its own laws in writing and practice, contains too many exceptions, and abolished the Lenten and Advent Fasts.
It is my hope that the next pope will confirm this calendar as the universal calendar. Until then, I can only bind my religious order to it. I can only recommend that Catholics who do not belong to my order follow it. For a detailed explanation of all the revisions and additions to the calendar and the rubrics, see RJMI book Revisions to the Roman Missal and the Calendar, which will be posted on our website soon.
Note: When these .pdf calendars are viewed on a computer, some of the lines may appear to be missing. However, this is only a viewing issue. When you print out the calendar, everything will be intact.
Obey all of God’s commandments: “If thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.” (Mt. 19:17) “For not the hearers of the law are just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified.” (Rom. 2:13)
Pray: “We ought always to pray, and not to faint,” (Lk. 18:1) “Be instant in prayer; watching in it with thanksgiving:” (Col. 4:2) “Pray, lest ye enter into temptation.” (Lk. 22:40)
Do penance: “I say to you: but unless you shall do penance, you shall all likewise perish.” (Lk. 13:3) “For if you live according to the flesh, you shall die: but if by the Spirit you mortify the deeds of the flesh, you shall live.” (Rom. 8:13)
Study the Catholic faith: “Attend unto reading, to exhortation, and to doctrine. …Take heed to thyself and to doctrine: be earnest in them. For in doing this thou shalt both save thyself and them that hear thee.” (1 Tim. 4:13, 16) “He that refuseth to learn, shall fall into evils.” (Prv. 17:16)
Do the spiritual works of mercy: Admonish the sinner, instruct the ignorant, counsel the doubtful, comfort the sorrowful, bear wrongs patiently, forgive all injuries, and pray for the living and the faithful departed dead.
Do the corporal works of mercy: Feed the hungry, give drink to the thirsty, clothe the naked, ransom the captive, shelter the homeless, visit the sick, and bury the dead.
