Books & Missals - general (For the People)

New Sunday and Daily Missals are -new edition that were published to coincide with the launch of the new English translation of the Mass back in 2011. Following Pope Benedict's expressed desire that this new translation become a springboard for a renewal and a deepening of Eucharistic devotion, these Missals contain everything you need at Mass.  The New Daily Missal beautifully presents the parts that you would find in any good Missal; Full Calendar; Lists of Feasts and readings for reference; Masses for special occasions and needs, etc.  But as well as these, the New Daily Missal uniquely offers also: Parallel Latin texts alongside the English for the Order of Mass and the priest's prayers; Preparatory prayers for before Mass; Prayers of thanksgiving and devotion for after Mass; Comprehensive appendix of other prayers and devotions such as Stations of the Cross, prayers before the Blessed Sacrament; Inspiring introductions for major feasts and seasons.

 

The New Daily Missal features: durable and attractive binding, clear layout, easy-to-read fonts - basic font size is 9pt, beautiful sacred art in full colour, ribbon placeholders (in different colours).

The 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.
