Excerpts From the Roman Missal - Book of the Chair - GF7613
Excerpts from the Roman Missal (also known informally as the "Book of the Chair") represents a worthy and welcome solution to a commonly voiced concern: The Roman Missal is a large and heavy book, difficult for altar servers (who are often children) to hold for the celebrant and to carry around the sanctuary. Developed by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops and approved by the Vatican, Excerpts includes only those texts of the Missal that are used by the celebrant at the chair. The resulting volume is approximately half the size of the full Missal.
The Deluxe Genuine Leather Edition is hand-bound by master craftsmen, using hand-selected two-tone leather cut from specially tanned hides of impeccable quality. The two-color stamped cover and gold stamped spine add a distinctive beauty, while the luxurious Chevo endsheets enhance the edition’s artistry. Stain under gilded pages adds opulence while providing protection from dust and humidity. Gift boxed. Size 8-1/2" x 11"
