This new publication of The Order of Penance is produced with the same high-quality standards one has come to expect from MTF’s liturgical offerings – especially the Roman Missal and The Book of the Gospels. The quality of this revised ritual edition of The Order of Penance helps convey the solemnity and dignity of the Sacrament of Penance.

Great Binding, Puzzled by Yellow Pages


A welcome format, with great typesetting, format, and layout. However, I am very puzzled by the yellow paper, its difficult to look at, and I hope new paper similar to the nice Roman Missal published by MTF is used for future printings.

Great book but


I just received my order for 2 copies of The Order of Penance. It is an elegant book with a sturdy handsome binding and beautiful printing. Nevertheless, it is not bound to stay open on a pulpit. It could be used by one priest, but not for communal services without difficulty. I am surprised by this oversight. In addition, I think it should have had gilt edges.


not readable - paper is a dark yellow


The background color of the pages in this ritual book are dark yellow. I have a hard time focusing on yellow pages. If it was a slight off-white or ivory color, it would have been tolerable. But these pages are deep yellow. I don’t recommend this version to anyone.
