Friday afternoon greetings from the WLP "home office" here in Franklin Park, Illinois.
We were quite excited this morning. When we first began our production of The Roman Missal, which has won three major awards (but you who read this blog already know that!), we decided that we were going to produce a hand-held personal edition of the Missal. We thought of people who study the liturgy, seminarians, armed forces chaplains who are deployed, priests, liturgy planning teams, liturgists, musicians, etc., who didn't necessarily need a chapel or ceremonial large and heavy edition. Well, our first copies of the WLP personal edition of The Roman Missal arrived this morning. It weighs in at 1.25 pounds and fits in the hand really well.
The cover design is the same as our value edition of the missal:
The interior pages contain the same content as our other editions of the missal, including black and red ink, our re-engraved chants, and the Vatican artwork (although it appears in this edition in black and white).
Thanks for listening to this WLP commercial.
And I hope you have a blessed weekend.
Gotta sing. Gotta pray.
