|Review:||I love this missal. I like to read along at Mass, and the readings are included for weekdays as well as weekend Masses. There are plenty of extras such as prayers before Mass, Communion, Confession Etc.|

|Review:||There was too much page turning, back and forth. I wanted a Missal that I could just go to the day and read along with the Mass. With this Missal, you had to go back and forth, and I felt it would take away from my concentrating on the mass.|

|Review:||Learning to use this format slowly,but am glad to have it all in one book Best Uses: Sunday; Cons: Learning to use; Pros: All inclusive|

|Review:||I had the old version Missal. The new one has been very helpful in understanding all the changes. I use it every Sunday. I would definitely recommend this missal. Best Uses: For Weekly Mass; Pros: Easy To Understand, Very helpful|
|By:||Kath the Catholic (California, MD, January 3, 2012)|
|Review:||This missal is very full of everything you need for Mass, but it's arrangement is extremely confusing and hard for everyday use. You will be flipping pages all during the Mass. I bought it for my elderly mother and she gave it back to me because she found it confusing.|
|By:||Speecherika (Greater Cleveland, December 30, 2011)|
|Review:||Got this as a gift for my daily mass attending husband. It has been difficult for him to find the right sections; it would be better if daily readings were in one book and sunday/feasts were in a separate. It's heavy and bulky. It falls open unlike previous missals that had zippers. It looks good with its gold page edges but is otherwise less than user-friendly. Best Uses: Trying to be current; Cons: Complicated hard to find, Heavy3book old StJoeBest, Small difficult to read; Pros: New|

|Review:||It took some getting used to after using just a Sunday missal. But after I "studied" it for a while I have everything marked. I also made "cheat sheets" for the front covers so I could find the Eucharistic Prayer being used and the new wording so I didn't have to flip back and forth so much. Am enjoying following along with the daily readings even though I don't attend daily mass. I agree that the Advent pages were confusing. Cons: Difficult To Navigate; Pros: Ribbon markers|

|Review:||I bought a book as a gift and it was well received|
|By:||Diane (Tucson, AZ, December 28, 2011)|
|Review:||I used the old missals, which were three in number: One for Sunday and two for all the weekday Masses during the year. I just love having one book that I can use for everything everyday. I also love the gold embossing that spells out my name on the front of the missal. It gives one a real feeling of ownership! Best Uses: At home and at Mass; Pros: All inclusive, I love the binding, The extras are valuable, The intermittent prints, The ribbons are nice|
|By:||Mild Bill (Pensacola, Fl, December 25, 2011)|
|Review:||I was expecting to receive a Latin Missal which contained all the daily readings in both English and Latin. I like to follow the priest when he is reading the Latin. However I find that there are only English and no Latin translations of the daily readings and Gospel. My 1962 addition contains all the readings in Latin and English. In my opion, this is not a complete Daily Roman Missal. I also find it harder to follow the Mass with the Prefaces spliting the order of the Mass. It would be better to have the order of the Mass a separate section, with separate sections for the Prefaces following the order of the Mass. I find myself having to flip back and forth too many times searching for too many items.|

|Review:||Organizing 2000 pages of text that covers the entire year is no easy task. If you are familiar with the way the Liturgy of the Hours is organized the organization of the Daily Roman Missal will be similar. It took me only a few uses to become familiar with how to navigate quickly. What complicates the matter is that we are not yet familiar with the new Eucharistic Prayers...but this too is coming along nicely. Best Uses: DailyMass; Pros: Complete, Organization|

|Review:||I use this produce daily. I love being able to read ahead. The long and short form Gospel readings are very useful especially if time is limited. The only thing I feel can be a bit of a problem is the weight of product. Other than that I am very satisfied. Best Uses: Daily uses, Great study material, Looking ahead of masses; Cons: Larger than expected; Pros: It is easy to understand, It refers to bible verses, Like the optional verses, Very happy with product|

|Review:||The product is very useful|
|By:||Geri (Horse Cave, KY, December 15, 2011)|
|Review:||I had a Sunday only missal before, with only English text and two ribbons. This is definitely a step up, and not as difficult to get used to as I thought it would be. Tthe smaller, light shaded type is a frustration that kept this from getting all the available stars. Best Uses: Anytime; Cons: Colored type hard to read, Print is a bit small; Pros: Includes latin text, Lots of ribbon markers, Many seldom found prayers, Solid binding, Well-organized|
|By:||rooney (Kenilworth.NJ, December 14, 2011)|
|Review:||I returned product and exchanged it for a subscription to Magnificat-It was just too confusing to find the correct readings and prayers Cons: Very confusing; Pros: Attractive cover, Lightweight, Perfect Size|

|Review:||Portable missal for a priest who travels. Has all the essentials. Uses precious space for Latin text & 200 pp devotional material -- I'd prefer more Masses for Various Needs & bigger print. Best Uses: Deepening daily prayer, Traveling priests; Cons: Missing some Masses; Pros: Complete texts, Everything essential, Portable|

|Review:||I bought this as a birthday present for my boyfriend, and it was better than what he had asked for. He's very happy and I have to say I'm impressed with the layout. It's a wonderful companion for mass. Best Uses: Transition to new missal; Cons: none; Pros: Binding lays flat, Easy To Read, Has the Latin Mass, Love It|
|By:||Letty (Inverness, Florida, February 20, 2012)|
|Review:||The words are a lot meaningful to the latin version. I love it, it's less distraction, more participation in the passion of OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST. It increases our faith,Penitential Rite, enchanting the Gloria, and the Creed "I believe" it pertains to ones belief. I love the Eucharistic Prayers I to IV which is the heart of the mass.|
|By:||hermes (Vista, CA, February 8, 2012)|
|Review:||The instructional small print turns out to be informative guide. Has all needed for understanding the Catholic devotions. However, unless you have a familiarity with the bible, the references on the Readings in the Mass may call for a little research other than just alphabetical....but that's a point of my personal inexperience. Pros: All needed explanations, Handsome construction, Thorough to a fault|
|By:||Aine Leigh (Colorado Springs, CO, March 29, 2012)|
|Review:||I mark the Mass ahead. My grandchildren can then follow along. I like having the Latin Mass in order to study both the English & Latin versions. I was disappointed that one of the ribbon markers had been cut and inexpertly repaired with sticky fabric glue, rather than being replaced entirely. The Missal is complex to follow but that is because of the volume of information contained within. It will take a little more work before I feel fully comfortable using this missal. Best Uses: Allow children to follow, Mark Mass ahead; Cons: Very complex to use; Pros: Contains complete Mass, Has dates to mark Mass, Has ribbon markers|
|By:||Mary (Wheaton, MN, May 11, 2012)|
|Review:||The missal is easy to use, and I love the devotions and prayers. I also like the way it explains topics such as defining what an indulgence is. It also goes into great detail on explaining the Rosary.|

|Review:||I am a Franciscan brother, and I find this to be very helpful in many ways. First in preparation for Daily Prayers, then for the Sunday Eucharist, and finally to assist with the readings for the week when producing the parish bulletin. It was a sound choice for me. And one that I am blessed with.|
