A Fine Edition
on 2 April 2012
The C.T.S. Daily Missal has certainly been a labour of love and a successful one. The previous reviewers will be glad to know that a zipped case will be available from C.T.S. at the end of April to solve some problems of durability. The Missal is well set out with the Sunday Masses at the beginning of the book, the Mass ordinary in the middle, edged in red, and the weekday propers in the second half of the book with the sanctoral cycle. To complete this are various devotions.
It is, however, rather heavy! I agree with the first reviewer about the Prefaces in the middle, rather than at the end, of the ordinary of the Mass but as it is the same for the Altar Missal pity the celebrant!
Nevertheless, this is a worthy edition for the new translation of the Mass and I too appreciate the Latin propers for comparison with the translation (which is an accurate one although the more formal and theological language may take some getting used to). At last we have Catholic theology in a nutshell once more.
