Since the time of St. Gregory the Great, formal liturgical books containing readings from Sacred Scripture have been common in the Church. Today every effort is made to assure that the Scriptures are bound in books that are “worthy, dignified, and beautiful” (Lectionary for Mass, no. 35).

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.

Beautiful Liturgical Book


Our parish needed a new Book of the Gospels and we did some research and chose this well made and beautiful book. My wife and I donated the book and it was first used for our son’s Wedding Mass. The book’s illustrations and photos are stunning and the layout is wonderful. Our deacon who is sight impaired said that it was the first time since he was ordained 17+ years ago that he didn’t need to read the Gospel from a printed sheet. The book would be wonderful addition to any church and is certainly fitting for the liturgy.


Excellent Gospel


This is the Book of Gospels used at our parish and I wanted one for my personal use. The cover has an excellent design of our Lord and also the 4 evangelists symbols, The pages are bold and beautiful with excellent pictures. I’m a Deacon at our parish and I have this at home to reflect on the Gospel readings and to prepare for proclaiming at mass. Recommend to anyone for your parish or your home.
