Book of the Gospels - Standard Edition


The Book of the Gospels Standard Edition: This book contains the gospel reading for each Sunday of the three-year cycle, plus all solemnities, feats, and ritual Masses that are celebrated throughout the liturgical year. Since the days of St. Gregory the Great, the Book of the Gospels has been venerated above all other liturgical books. It is revered with the same holy kiss given to the altar. The NCCB has decreed that this translation is the only one to be used at Masses in the United States, and that cathedrals and at least the larger, more populous parishes should possess a beautifully designed Book of the Gospels separate from all other books. This Second Edition of The Book of the Gospels is certain to meet and keep the standards set centuries ago.Features of this new Edition of The Book of the Gospels include: reinforced spine * genuine leather * lighter binding (2 lbs lighter than the first edition) * readings from the newly revised New American Bible * Gospel readings for all Sunday Masses in the three year cycle, all Solemnities, all Feasts of the Lord, and all Ritual Masses * table of readings * more than 300 full-color pictures from the Church?s treasury of fine art * large font size (enlarged from the first edition) and sense lines * high-opacity paper to prevent images and text from bleeding through * large, ornate place-holder ribbon * gold-stamped cover featuring Christ and the four Evangelists into the leather?gold-stamped leather endsheets and gilded * pageshandcrafted in Belgium * 10.5 x 14.25, pp 558 * The Book of the Gospels will be esteemed among the treasures of your parish for years to come.
