Benziger's Classic Edition Altar Missal

CHICAGO, IL (JANUARY 12, 2009) - Missale Romanum 1962 has been in preparation ever since Pope Benedict XVI released his new motu proprio 'Summorum Pontificum.'

The preferred altar missal amongst the American clergy, being the most user-friendly edition of the Missal for the Traditional Latin Mass, Benziger's classic standard edition is available once again thanks to the Canons Regular of St. John Cantius in Chicago.

This is the only reprinted Altar Missal available in complete conformity with the final revisions made by the Holy See in 1962 to the traditional Roman Missal.

So unlike the other “1962” altar missal being offered in the USA, this edition includes:

* St. Joseph's name in the Canon (added in November 1962),
* the Ad Libitum Prefaces (added in July 1962 and which includes the restored Advent preface),
* the Pro Aliquibus Locis Section specifically arranged for the dioceses of the United States per the 1962 liturgical calendar (added in December 1962)
* and the original imprimatur by Cardinal Francis Spellman.

More information on the Missal can be found at:

The Missals were completed the Feast of the Epiphany, January 6, 2009.

The 1962 Missale Romanum features a bonded red leather hardcover, gold-embossed, 1,290 pages, and measuring 83/8” x 11¼” and is approximately 2¾” thick.

Our poly-grosgrain colored ribbons finished with bows prevent fraying. The Missal's strong midi-braid leads bridges the ribbons to the spine and protects pages and life of ribbons.

The flexible bonded leather tabs are in red and black. The original quality black and red text are found throughout the Missal. The Missal has sturdy sewn binding and reinforced endsheet construction. It features non-acid missal-quality paper.

The gorgeous gold-gilded page edges are protected by a complimentary slip jacket for proper storage of this worthy investment.

The famed Benziger Brothers were one of America's premier printers to the Apostolic See before the Second Vatican Council. Benzinger Brother's in addition to their book publishing business, began the lithographing of religious pictures.

Their crisp and beautiful chromo-lithograph images in their 1962 Missale Romanum were some of their most superb work.

Now the Benzinger 1962 Missale Romanum is yours again today thanks to the Canons Regular of St. John Cantius and the Cantius Webstore.
