The Roman Catholic Missal is a liturgical book outlining the instructions and prayers necessary for the celebration of the Catholic Mass throughout the year. The word 'Missal' is taken from the Latin word 'missa', meaning 'sent'. There are a variety of Catholic Missals available, such as Daily Missals, Weekly Missals, or Sunday Missals. Aside from the standard Roman Missal one can also find Marian Missals, Spanish Missals and children’s Missals. With your personal copy of the Roman Missal you are able to reflect on the Mass readings at your leisure. In many cases your Missal can be personalized, so be sure to check out personalization options on the version you choose.
