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!
