There's a table with dates for Easter and so on going way into the future. For some reason I find this comforting. My old Missal ran out of dates in a similar table at 1970, kind of odd when you think about it in light of events in November 1969.
One of my most cherished possessions, as it would be for anyone who loves the Mass.
Con: the only con that I have for this missal and the ONLY reason that I took one star is that it's imitation leather here on Amazon, but that's an easy fix at [...] They offer a Very nice leather one for $68.00 I gave my imitation leather one away and now I have the Leather one.
This Missal has good organization and clear explanations. The table of contents and index make location of Masses, Litanies,Novenas,Votive Masses,etc. easy to locate. The Liturgical Calendar of Movable Feasts is dated until the year 2050 which makes this Missal useful for at least another 42 years.
Another useful feature of this Missal is the Litanies to St. Mary, Christ, St. Joseph, etc. The Litany of the Saints is complete, and as much as possible this Missal has recently canonized saints listed on their feast days. Many readers probably know that that certain feast days include different saints which can conflict with the proper celebration of their feast days. There are explanations for this in this Missal.
The Ordinary of the Mass is highlighted in black and red print with Latin and accurate translations into English. Those who may remember when the Latin Mass was celebrated regularly may recall much of the Latin. Those studying Latin will find this Missal a handy guide to examine how good their Latin is. As an aside, this reviewer's Latin is not good, and he appreciates the clearly written translations.
The Proper of the Saints used in this Missal has a brief but informative history of both well known and lesser known men and women who have been canonized as saints. The concept that the Catholic Church was built on the Martyrdom of Her saints is made clear in the feast days and the number of martyrs in the first 300 to 400 years of the history of the Catholic Church. The blessings and readings of the Mass and special feast days are again in both Latin and English.
Those who like to contemplate the masses, prayers, etc. will find this Missal useful. There are special prayers and biblical readings for every day of the year. This Missal has the Mass for each day of the year with a listing of movable feasts. The index and table of contents offer convenient guides to help the faithful which needs to be reemphasized.
On page 1900, the chants (Gregorian Chant for example)of the Catholic Mass are available with the Latin and musical notations. The Latin Mass was orginally celebrated by chanting based mostly on Gregorian Chant. Readers should know that Gregorian Chant and the other chants used by monks and priests were the basis of Classical Music. Readers who have a love of Gregorian Chant and Classical music would appreciate this part of the Missal.
The ROMAN CATHOLIC DAILY MISSAL is based mostly on the Latin Missal sanctioned at the Council of Trent and was first issued in 1570. Those who argue that the Latin Missal is not that old have not studied history very closely. The Latin Missal sanctioned in 1570 was based on the Latin Missal(s)that were at least a thousand years old. The Trent Missal has a long history behind is publication.
This reviwer highly recommends the ROMAN CATHOLIC DAILY MISSAL. Traditional Catholics will enjoy and appreciate this Missal. Readers should know that Prof. Thomas Woods wrote a book titled SACRED THEN AND SACRED NOW which is a good companion volume to this Missal. Prof. Woods has an useful guide and listing of web sites that will enhance the enjoyment and use of the ROMAN CATHOLIC DAILY MISSAL.
The text in this missal is larger & makes reading it easier.
This missal is also very comprehensive.
Has summary of Catholic doctrines, common prayers, litanies, rites, sacraments, blessings, votive collects... The list goes on. (In fact, the table of contents is 42 pages!)
"Roman Catholic Daily Missal" is like having a library in the palm of your hand!
I've also found one typographical error so far in skimming through the missal. I'm quite sure the "Jube, Domne, benedícere" on page 852 under the Ordinary of the Mass is supposed to be spelled as "Jube, Dómine, benedícere" since this exact phrase with the same corresponding English translation as the one with the "Domne" in it appears just at the next page.
