Deceptive title? Perhaps, but I should have realized for the price that this wasn't going to be a true "Sunday missal". It simply contains the ordinary texts for some Masses in the Extraordinary Form; the subtitle should have clued me in to this, but I guess I gave higher precedence to the main title.

Despite the professional cover, the book is poorly designed and cheaply typeset. There is no table of contents nor is there an index! There are no running heads, only page numbers, so opening up to a random page, you'll have a tough time figuring out what you're looking at. The Latin text isn't accented like most missals. The font is not worthy of such a work; the type size is too large.

Repetition abounds. While there isn't a table of contents, so I can't be sure, the Mass seems to be repeated in its entirety 3 times, not as you might expect, with notes about where the Requiem and Nuptial mass differs. Why does the Canon of the Mass need to be in missal at least 3 times?

Saving graces are the beautiful works of art interleaved in the simply typeset pages.

To the publisher: I anticipate the 2nd edition which surely will correct some of these well-founded criticisms. If there can only be a few fixes, I'd recommend these in order: (1) prepare indexes and a Table of Content; (2) reconsider the typeface and size, perhaps even size of the book (there seems to be a market for something like this if it were pocket-sized); (3) gain access to some of the old missal art available -- this and a new font/size would "class up" the work much more than the works by the masters included in this edition; (4) change the main title to be more honest; (5) accent the Latin text. Best wishes in this endeavor.

While I would agree with the previous reviewers comments and recommendations in general, this book deserves more than the one-star rating he gave it.

It is a good quick reference that works fine with the printed handouts that are normally given (at my church at least) for the Latin Mass.

Paper quality is very good and the book size and large font is fine for beginners following along during Mass.

Worth the money, could be better.

Doesn't have the readings for the day, but that's the beauty of it. It's perfect for children or adults who don't need to read the propers but do want to follow along with the Mass. Beautiful artwork and pretty sturdy. For the price, it's a no-brainer.
