Excerpts from the Roman Missal, Chapel Edition
On February 1, 2018, Catholic Book published Excerpts from the Roman Missal. This publication, informally known as The Book of the Chair, contains the texts of the Roman Missal used by the celebrant while at the chair.
Approved by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, this slimmer companion text addresses the concerns about the weight of the Roman Missal. At roughly half the page count of the full Roman Missal, Excerpt from the Roman Missal will be appreciated by both Celebrants and altar servers.
The compact 7 x 9-inch Chapel Clothbound Edition of Excerpts from the Roman Missal features highly readable type for text and music, while boasting a proven layout that respects functional page-turns. As with the presentRoman Missal, sturdy 80 lb. paper used for the Order of Mass provides extra strength to withstand everyday use. The Chapel Edition also features durable Roxite cover material.
