Hi, guys —

  • Can you recommend a Sunday Missal for me to use?

A friend, Anonymous Andrew replied:

Dear Michael,

For Masses in English, I like the Daily Roman Missal published by Midwest Theological Forum.

As a church musician, I sometimes need texts for weekday or Saint-day Masses in addition to Sundays but it is not convenient for carrying to church, since it's two inches thick.

For a Sunday-only Missal, the Saint Paul Sunday Missal (Pauline Books) looks handy: it has an attractive typeface and is only about 3/4 inch thick.

If you're interested in Latin Masses in the old form, you might consider getting a used copy of the Fulton J. Sheen Sunday Missal, published in 1961; they're beautifully designed and about $80: too bad nobody has started offering a new edition.

If you want to get a brand-new Missal, it may be hard to find a Sunday-only book; I don't know of any.

Angelus Press has an attractive Roman Catholic Daily Missal for about $65.

I hope this will be useful. God bless!

— Andrew
