Particular church has two meanings[edit]

So I notice that what canon law calls a particular church is an ecclesia particularis, but what the GENERAL NORMS FOR THE LITURGICAL YEAR AND THE CALENDAR – 14 FEBRUARY 1969 calls a particular church is an ecclesia propria, obviously not the same thing. So what is the meaning of this "particular church". It is not the same as the mediaeval definition, which wikipedia describes here: ecclesia propria. What is the meaning of the particular churches mentioned in the Liturgy of the Hours? Rwflammang (talk) 22:59, 28 September 2013 (UTC)

Religious institutes have their own calendars, and patronal feasts may apply to the whole order, a province, or a single monastery or friary or abbey, the latter of which might still be understood as an ecclesia propria. I believe that this term also encompasses dioceses, for example the patron of the Roman Catholic Diocese of San Francisco is St. Francis of Assisi and therefore his feast day is elevated in rank to a solemnity in that particular Church.
