The Excerpts from the Roman Missal Book (formerly known as the Book of the Chair) has been a much-requested publication since the publication of the new translation of the Roman Missal in 2010. The book contains prayers said by the presider from the chair.
This edition is now available and is a welcome addition to the liturgical books used at Sunday and other Masses. It is a fraction of the weight of the Altar and Chapel Missals and offers a practical and portable alternative for use at the chair, whether on a lectern or held by an altar server.
The book contains prayers said from the chair for Sundays and feast days, reproduced in a beautifully bound and durable volume. The text is large and legible even at a distance, set at full Altar Missal size with clear indications for the prayers said before and after the Liturgy of the Eucharist. Sundays throughout the year and Feasts and Solemnities from the Proper of Time as well as Ritual Masses and the Common of the Dedication of a Church are included, along with Appendices such as the Sprinkling of Water, sample Universal Prayers and alternative invocations for the Penitential Act. (The texts of Holy Week can be found in the CTS volume: Holy Week Missal.)
