Two New Printings - Missale Romanum, Rituale Romanum

A couple of liturgical book notices came NLM's way yesterday.

The first is a newly typeset edition of the 1962 Missale Romanum (which will soon be available for order from

The second is a new printing of the Rituale Romanum:

This is the first edition of the Rituale Romanum since 1957. It is based upon the last Editio typica of 1952, supplemented by all the benedictions approved by the Holy See until 1957. This new edition complies with canon law and regulations and was granted the Imprimatur according to can. 826 II CIC by His Excellency Bishop Gregor Maria Hanke OSB.

In contrast to the editions of 1952 and 1957 the new edition contains the traditional Vulgate psalms. Text layout and indeed the beauty of the volume show that we have observed the high quality standards of the great liturgical publishing houses of the past.

We cordially invite you to have a look at the following pages for further information about the new edition of the Rituale Romanum.

With these links you can view some photos of both the interior and binding.
