Review

"I am impressed by this hand missal which, so far, is probably the best I have seen. If you are looking for something for yourself or as a gift, this would be a great choice." --Fr. John Zuhlsdorf, WDTPRS.Com/Blog

I'm quite sold on the Baronius Press edition of the 1962 Daily Missal for several reasons. The first being that it is endorsed by the Priestly Fraternity of Saint Peter. I really believe in what they are doing and would like to support their efforts. Baronius seems like an excellent publisher of traditional or old Catholic books. They publish them beautifully and in what looks to be extremely high quality. I've read a lot of good things about their books on the internet, so I feel like I can trust their edition not to fall apart after a year or two. They have a lot of extras included as well. Listed in their features is "the Churching of Women", which I am especially interested in reading about...:-) --Absolutely No Spin blog, August 14, 2006

The Baronius Press 1962 Daily Missal is essential for any Catholic Gentleman who aspires to appreciate the beauty and fullness of the Catholic Faith. Summorum Pontificum, one of Pope Benedict s XVI s many gifts to the modern Church, ushered in a new era of appreciation for the Mass of the Ages, Tradition, liturgical seasons, and the authentic Catholic culture that inspires saintly behavior. The 1962 Daily Missal is the key to unlocking this momentous and wondrous gift, the lens through which the Catholic Gentleman can examine and appreciate its contents. Like everything that Baronius publishes, the 1962 Daily Missal is a true work of art. The pictures are worthy of the holy contents of the missal, and contrast sharply with the scribbles in the modern paperback missals found in parish pews. The binding and cover are built to withstand the frequent study every Catholic Gentleman should give his prayers. --Whiskey Catholic, February 23, 2015

The Angelus Press missal is beautiful; this one is less so.
The Real BFlow
The English and Latin juxtaposition is easy to follow and assists greatly in following the Mass.

Not to be confused with the "Roman Catholic Daily Missal" published by Angelus Press. This is the "1962 Roman Missal" published by Baronius Press, Ltd. in association and colloboration with the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter, a religious institute established in 1988 by Pope John Paul II to exclusively to offer only the traditional Latin Mass or the Mass according to the rubrics of Pope John XXIII and Pope Pius XII.

This Missal is great because the readings are based on the Douay Rheims Bible and they are in British English. Many of the feasts of the saints are from the 1970 Novus Ordo Calendar such as St. Richard Gwyn and St. Oliver Plunkett.

It includes prayers for the conversions of England, Scotland, and Wales. Much of the liturgical discipline and feasts are for the British Isles, Ireland, and the USA.

It is the almost the same as the "1962 Roman Catholic Daily Missal", except it does not include the 7 Sacraments with the exception of Holy Matrimony. This Missal includes ALL the Gallican Prefaces used only in France.

The 1962 Missal includes prayers that were edited by Pope John XXIII. Pope John XXIII removed the conversions of the Jews and Muslims in the Act of Consecration to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. He also removed the absolution of venial sins at the Communion of the Faithful in the Ordinary of the Mass.

I own three missals; 1945 St. Andrews, 1962 Baronius Press, and 1962 Angelus Press. What is desirable about the B.P. Missal is its soft genuine-leather cover, gold trim, and cream-colored pages. However, I would suggest that the B.P.'s "weakness" is the format, especially when compared to the beautiful 1945 St. Andrews missal. For example, the St. Andrews has both the Latin and English on the same page, organized into two columns, with rubrics in red. The B.P. however, has [for the mass] English on one page and Latin on the opposite page, with the rubrics repeated on both pages (also in red).

It's text font and spacing also seems to be cluttered, compared to the Angelus and SA. In addition, the LATIN text [for the propers and other prayers] in the B.P. Missal is reduced in size to ~1/2 the size as the English font. This de-emphasization appears to be a common trend among newer missals; post 1950's (note the 1945 St. Andrew gives equal spacing to both).

A third minor complaint; the print in the B.P. is somewhat difficult to read (for example, there is no clear differentiation between headings, canon, and rubrics like there is in the Angelus Press and St. Andrews). In this regard, the Angelus Press and St. Andrews missal are aesthetically "neater" than the B.P. (although there is significantly more "dead space" in the Angelus Press Missal).

There is also less information on each page. In the B.P., the text for the mass consumes about 71 pages, whereas in the S.A. is about half that; at 34 pages! (When I attend mass with the B.P. missal or Angelus Press missal, I find I am constantly turning pages to keep up). One last point, is the commentary in the S.A.

Physically this is a perfect edition, the leather cover, binding, paper and type set, flawless.

Spiritually this is an amazing book to me. I have no memory of the Tridentine Mass (Latin), as I was very young when it was suppressed. This opened my eyes to what we lost as Catholics! I hope the Vatican Secretary of State was accurate in reporting that Pope Benedict will soon release a motu proprio, allowing much broader use of the Tridentine Mass.

Having owned the previous edition, I bought the revised edition just after it came out recently, and certainly its been improved since the last edition. From the aesthetics point of view, the size is larger, but the book is now actually thinner, making it easier to handle and the corners are rounded.
Now there is the Motu Proprio Summorum Pontificum at the beginning aswell. It really is nice to see that the Missal is being updated with such important documents and the Imprimatur has been renewed.

I bought this Missal as a gift for my father when he was diagnosed with cancer. He had told me that he found himself thinking about his childhood Catholic Latin masses where he served as an altar boy. The memories were bringing him some comfort. So, when I found this book, I knew I had to get it for him.

He was very pleased with the gift. I found the quality to be great and it is more compact than I thought it would be so it is easy to hold. He spent a lot of time looking at it and reading from it and in the end, my sister read it to him. I highly recommend this Missal as a gift.

This particular Roman Missal published by Baronius is my favorite of the several that I've seen/used. It is extensive and has lots of content to include traditional devotions and prayers that I didn't see in other missals. It doesn't have the Mass notes some users like (including myself) or the explinations of things like priestly garments etc. that are in the front of some...So, I would recommend it for "veterans" and think they will be well pleased with it, however, this missal was good enough for me even when I was "just beginning" and I've owned it a couple of years now...I saw this item here on Amazon and wanted to review it since I like this particular missal so much. The quality is very nice just as with all Baronius Press books.
