Convenient Liturgical Calendar

A method for figuring out what week in the psalter you need has been posted here several times. But granted, it does require some mental math, plus a trek over to wherever you hang your parish calendar. Maybe too much to ask of us non-morning types who are huddled over the computer, waiting for the coffee to kick in.

Seth Murray's Online Liturgical Calendar  is the answer. You can  visit the website each day, or better yet, subscribe to daily emails, which include references for daily mass readings, which week of the liturgical year it is, what saints feast it is, if any, and best of all, what week of the psalter to use.

You might also want to check Seth's homepage to see his beautiful custom rosaries, prayer kneelers, and a very thorough tutorial book on the Liturgy of the Hours.
