The Classic Edition of the Roman Missal (8.5" x 11"), an affordable edition for everyday use, has the following features:
  • The Smyth-sewn binding and robust end sheets allows the missal to lay open and hold up to everyday use.
  • Full-color illustrations from the Church's treasury of fine art adorn the seasons and principal feasts of the liturgical year.
  • Gilded edges are struck with red and then gold to preserve their beauty even when the book is laid open.
  • The prayers are printed in black with red rubrics on august cream paper.
  • The 24 tabs are made of bonded leather and firmly attached to the page to facilitate the turning of pages and prevent tearing.
  • The six ribbons are custom-made with a slug so they do not damage the pages or binding.


The Book of the Gospels is a sign of Christ’s presence in the liturgy; it is revered with the same holy kiss given to the altar. For this reason, "it is desirable that cathedrals and at least the larger, more populous parishes and the churches with a larger attendance possess a beautifully designed Book of the Gospels, separate from any other book of readings" (Lectionary for Mass, no. 36).  This Second Edition of the Book of the Gospels is certain to meet and keep the standards set centuries ago.

  • Rindspeldt genuine leather binding
  • Includes more than 300 full-color illustrations
