Excerpts From the Roman Missal - Book of the Chair - GF3722
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 compact 7″ x 9″ Chapel Clothbound Edition features highly readable type for text and music, while boasting a proven layout that respects functional page-turns. As with the present Roman Missal, sturdy 80 lb. paper used for the Order of Mass provides extra strength to withstand everyday use. Like the Clothbound Edition, the Chapel Edition also features durable Roxite cover material.
