A Special Offer from the Monastère Saint Benoît on Table Blessing Booklets

The Monastère Saint Benoît in La Garde-Freinet, France (diocese of Fréjus-Toulon), will soon be moving into a new permanent home during the summer, a medieval commandery in the town of Brignoles. In preparation for the move, they need to reduce their stock of Benedictiones Mensæ, their 2019 publication of the traditional prayers before and after meals for each day, including all of the proper prayers for the greater feasts and their octaves, in Latin, and newly typeset with their proper Gregorian chant.

Accordingly, the price has now been reduced by approximately 50%, from €4,95 per copy to €2,50 per copy (hitherto the wholesale amount for purchases of 100 or more copies). This offer lasts up to and including the feast of Saint Benedict, July 11th.
