Books & Missals (Clergy)

A range of Clergy Missals suitable for Weekday and Sunday services, supplemetary guides and cards for both clergy and the people, altar, chapel and study Missal editions... you name it, we have it.  All you need to confidently lead as well as follow the Holy Mass.

he English Missal is a translation of the Latin Missal. This Latin Missale Romanum is the foundation document for translations into other languages. It means that across the world, though the language and local customs may be different, the form of the Mass and the content of the prayers is the same. The Missal is therefore a sign of the unity of the Church

A new translation of the Mass has been prepared for the English-speaking world. The current translation used in England and Wales was prepared in the late 1960s following the renewal of the liturgy after the Second Vatican Council.

After the Second Vatican Council, people had a great desire to pray the Mass in their own language. The initial translation, which we now have been using for about 40 years, was produced quickly in response to this desire. Early on it was recognised that the translation would need to redone.

Though our current translation has served the Church's prayer for the last 40 years, it was widely felt that it could be improved. The original translators, following the Church's

then guidelines on translation, chose a direct, plain style. Often this meant simplifying the texts of the prayers. One thing that people will notice about the new translation is

that it is richer in style, in content and in such things as scriptural allusions.
