The text includes Morning Prayer and Evening Prayer (both with Holy Communion) and Celebration of the Liturgy of the Word (with Holy Communion). The five appendices are Prayer of the Faithful; Forms of the Act of Thanksgiving; Collects for Sundays, Solemnities and Feasts of the Lord; the Directory for Sunday Celebrations in the Absence of a Priest and Gathered in Steadfast Faith: Statement of the Bishops’ Committee on the Liturgy on Sunday Worship in the Absence of t a Priest. 

It is a perfect resource for the parish sacristy or library, as well as for schools, convents, and religious houses. This revision conforms to the texts of the Roman Missal, Third Edition. Printed in two colors, this handsome ritual book includes two ribbon markers.
