New Latin Study edition of the Modern Roman Missal

I am certain that those priests and seminarians in our midst who are looking for tools and resources to help in the early stages of reforming the reform, will be quite interested in these two offerings from Midwest Theological Forum.

Thanks to a reader for pointing out the former resource, which is new and due to be off the press very soon.

Missale Romanum Editio a studiis (Study Edition)

Price: $150.00

This study edition of Missale Romanum comes in a gift box and is perfect for seminarians, priests, and libraries to assist in their studies of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. Textually, this edition is the same as that published by the Vatican in 2002, with the addition of the celebrations of St. Juan Diego and Our Lady of Guadalupe.

- convenient size and weight for carrying to class, having in the office, or referencing in the library

Of course, this book is the study edition of the 3rd typical edition of the modern Roman missal in Latin. Midwest Theological Forum also sells a lovely, albeit rather pricey, edition of the formal altar missal as well.

It looks like a very attractive edition.
