Hand Missal

There are several options for following along with the prayers at mass, either in Latin or English. By far, the most popular way to do this is your own personal missal. Hand missals not only contain the regular, unchanging prayers of the mass, but also all of the propers (the parts of the mass which change depending on what particular saint, feast, or holy day is being commemorated.) They also may contain other prayers and devotions as well as the prayers and ceremonies of some of the other sacraments. While hand missals may constitute a moderate investment, they will certain “pay you back” for a lifetime with proper use and care. Baronius Press of the UK has produced a wonderful missal for use by the faithful. They can be ordered directly from Baronius Press, various online booksellers, or from your local Catholic bookstore. Lagron-Miller in Peoria, IL usually has them in stock.
