Are you interested in a hand missal for the extraordinary form of the Mass (aka, traditional Latin Mass)? Click this link for product descriptions.
As you know, during this time of covid we have been unable to place hymnals or missalettes in the pews. Having your own hand missal helps you follow the Mass and also makes it easy to study the Mass readings at home.
If you would like to have a missal of your own—for the ordinary or the extraordinary form of the Mass—see the descriptions below for several recommended options.
Choices include daily missals, with all the readings for both daily and Sunday Masses as well as numerous prayers and devotions; Sunday-only missals; and paperback annual missals that are good for one church year (Advent through Christ the King). Missals are available in English and Spanish.
