Neale’s Breviary in PDF’s

There are several editions of the Breviary compiled (mostly) by St. John Mason Neale. I will provide them below in pdf.

The Night Hours or Matins

The_night_hours_of_the_Church_Vol_1 (Psalter, Propers & Commons of Saints, Season up to Whitsun-tide)

The_night_hours_of_the_Church_Vol_2 (Psalter, Propers & Commons of Saints, Season from Trinity onwards)

The_night_hours_of_the_Church_Vol_3 (Propers of the Saints)

The Day Hours from Lauds to Compline



There are a few more pdf’s to upload. Somewhere I have a vol. 1&2 combined version which seems to be a slightly updated version of the separate volumes of 1 and 2. There is also a diurnal with some changes compared to the one given above.I will post them once I (re) locate them.

Fr. Gregory Wassen



Kalendar, General Rubrics, Psalter, Proper of Saints, Common of the Saints, Office of the Dead, Gradual Psalms, Proper of the Seasons (Advent to Whitsun-tide).

    1. You are welcome Sister. I have been, slowly, working on reviving this wonderful resource for Anglican Catholic spiritual life. It deserves to known and used. The Sisters of Saint Margaret have done a wonderful job with the Divine Office in later editions and it is much under-appreciated.
