Worth waiting for,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Weekday Missal (Red edition) (Hardcover)
When the new translation of the Mass was introduced last December, I was given a Christmas present of a new Sunday Missal. However, this left me with the old translation on weekdays. I was somewhat loath to commit myself to the New Daily Missal as it would duplicate with the Sunday Missal and seemed very big indeed. I therefore ordered the new Weekday Missal, published by Collins. This was due for publication at the end of January.
At the end of January I was told it would not be available till April, and in April, publication was delayed till the end of June. However, at the end of June it finally arrived and I am delighted with it. It follows the same format as my previous Missal so it is easy for me to use. The single sequence of saints' days, without the special British and Irish ones being relegated to an appendix, is a significant improvement. It does not include the parallel Latin texts as in the CTS version, but personally, I don't miss that; you spend less time turning the pages during the Mass. I have needed to add a few extra markers to find my way through the Eucharistic Prayers but that is a small concession. It is still a large book and I hope the binding will last but I am certainly happy to have only 2,400 pages rather than 3,400. All in all I recommend this Weekday Missal to anyone who likes to follow the Mass during the week.

My neighbour has a copy of this Missal. However, the response to the psalm is set out differently to what is said at our parish. Do you have this problem with your Missal?
