Truly Magnificent

I collect old missals, and am familiar with St. Andrew’s, Key of Heaven, Blessed Be God, and Fr. Lasance missals in particular. I was curious about this daily missal and decided to purchase it. What appealed first and foremost to me is the proper translation of “consubstantialem” during the Creed.

It is striking how well organized this missal is. So many missals have “weak points” (often, scant pre/post prayers for Confession and Communion; or poor organization, illogical ordering of devotions, etc.). I was tired of using multiple missals to suit my needs. Well, my search is over. All I could do was sigh a deep sigh when I began looking through this missal. It is just amazing. So rich, so ordered, so clear. And on the topic of clarity: the layout is quite unique, in my opinion. The prayers are Latin on the entire left page, English on the entire right page. In other words, one page is not divided into two slim and harder to read columns with both Latin/English. I absolutely love this layout! It makes the prayers so much more cohesive. No hyphens, no narrow columns, just the big, round complete prayer right before your very eyes. I can’t tell you what visual peace this results in. I am so grateful that someone thought to make this simple but effective layout change.

The leather is very nice, and I am pleased with the (non-bulky) size of this missal. The paper, while thin, is of really excellent quality. (I was concerned about this based off of the one poor review of this missal). The gold edging is very nicely done. The print appears very even and consistent and bright.

I don’t have anything else to say other than this: this missal is a thing of beauty, a more-than-worthy tool to assist us in our daily lives as we reach for Heaven. Thank you to all who were involved in the creation of this missal, and thank you to Angelus Press for the option of leather. I hope and pray this will last a lifetime (and then some!).


Recieved quickly. Lively book that I will use for years to come ! Thank
You !

Very nice leather

This is great quality! Thank you. I wish you would make a Latin only version too.


Very well made and beautiful missal. It has basically everything you could want in a missal and reference text.
