The Creation of a Thing of Beauty takes Time

I found the link to this Catholic Herald article on the making of the new CTC missals on Fr Z’s blog. It is absolutely fascinating. Spend a bit of time reading it to appreaciate the beautiful new Missals we have on our altars today.

PS. I went to mass at a centre that did not yet have a copy of the new missal this morning. I loaned the priest my “study edition” to use, which he was happy to do! Actually, we had a bit of fun this morning, as there was no electricity there either this morning. So the candles on the altar had to double as their original (as well as their symbolic) purpose: to give lighting to the priest as he read the prayers from the missal. There was a bit of an “easter vigil” feel about the liturgy, as we had a baptism also. Mirabile dictu, the electricity (and hence the lights) came back on the moment the child was baptised!

I am Catholic, married to Cathy, father of Maddy & Mia. Since 2002, I have been the Executive Officer of the Ecumenical & Interfaith Commission of the Archdiocese of Melbourne. I was once a Lutheran pastor, but a "year of grace" and soul-searching led me into the Catholic Church. It was a bumpy ride, but with the support of my (still Lutheran) wife, I was finally confirmed on June 16, 2003.

    I have ordered and paid for a new Sunday Missal from CTS and I rang the distributor- St Pauls Publications- to check when i would be receiving it. It is coming later this month as there was a problem with a responsorial translation and thus it was needing to be amended/fixed/repaired/cut and pasted
