You have just gutted the sanctoral cycle function - making the Saints resource useless, destroying the concept of multiple saints on the same date of the sanctoral cycle and replacing it with a random choice of the author list of saints celebrated on a given date by someone. Then you have the audacity to send me this ad?

You as a company seem very slow to recognize that screwing up the whole concept of how sanctoral calendars work for Anglicans, Lutherans, and Catholics is a big deal to me and my patience it running thin.

On my Home page this morning I'm seeing a Saints card with a "see next" button that cycles between three Saints. All correct ones. And my choice of which one to display seems to persist when I leave the Home page. Smile

SineNomine:

… I'm seeing a Saints card with a "see next" button that cycles between three Saints. All correct ones. 

This is a step in the right direction, but I would suggest to the UX designer(s) that the word "next" be replaced with the word "more."  Although the phrase "see next" appears conditionally (not showing today) the term "next" in the context of a liturgical calendar implies "sequence" - in this case "date", where the term  "more" implies "additional."  In other words, it more accurately reflects the condition of the current date of the companion Lectionary card on the dashboard.  Now … if your redesigning both cards that would be a different design solution … 

My two cents.

I agree with you.
