Missals
#1
Hi, all.

I attend FSSP mass.  I have a very thin abbreviated missal that was passed down to me from a close family friend.  The more I attend mass, though, the more I would really love a more expansive missal that will allow me to follow along.

In my shopping around, seems to be a very traditional, widely used missal.

I recognize the SSPX symbol on the spine.  I'm not sure if I should use a missal that is published by a group that isn't faithful to Rome's authority (no offense, SSPXers.) 

Is there one published specifically by FSSP?  What do you use, and why do you prefer it?

My mother wants to buy me one for my 20th birthday.  (Warms my heart.  When I first joined this forum, she wouldn't even let me keep a rosary.)

This is the official missal that is put out by the FSSP. It has an imprimatur and is approved by the church. http://www.baroniuspress.com/category.php?wid=59&cid=2 . I have this missal but I hardly use it, I find it to be a little complicated.

I've seen that one used at Church the most, but wasn't sure where I could find it online.  Thank you.

May I ask what about it you find complicated?

First things first, without derailing the the thread, it's important to know that the SSPX are not unfaithful to Vatican Authority. It's also important you understand that Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre established the Society of St. Pius X with the full approval of Rome and according to the dictates of Canon Law. The purpose of the Society is the formation of priests in a manner untainted by any trace of modern errors in doctrine, morals or worship. http://www.sspx.com.au/ There is a huge difference between blindly accepting error and accepting the primacy of the Pontiff but Archbishop Lefebvre was surely our model here: No authority, not even the highest in the hierarchy, can compel us to abandon or to diminish our Catholic Faith, so clearly expressed and professed by the Church’s Magisterium for 19 centuries. http://sspx.org/en/faq-page/shouldnt-we-...-pope-1989

Back on track  :grin:

I use the St Andrew Daily Missal. It's great  :) http://www.libers.com/sam.htm

I alternate between the SSPX and FSSP personally.  I think the type font is better in the FSSP, but I like the notes that the SSPX includes in the margin for Mass.

If you are looking for a cheaper, but a really excellent quality missal that is really popping up at a lot of FSSP parishes is the St. Edmund Campion's Missal: http://www.ccwatershed.org/blog/2013/jul...-ordering/

I usually use my busted old New Marian Missal. I like it the best because that one offertory prayer is translated "human nature" rather than "humanity" when referring to our Lord's Hypostatic Union.

I am also fixing up an old Mary-knoll Missal from my late confirmation sponsor, so I may use that for some time if I decide to re-cover my Marian.

I highly recommend the Angelus Press Missal that you have concerns buying. (Fear not! The Society is very faithful to the Divine Authority of Eternal Rome otherwise they would not defend and preach Her Sacred Dogmas as they do.) But I do suggest the FSSP Missal as better if that's where you attend Mass AND if it contains the chant notation for most of the usual Mass settings.

That is just the Baronius Press Missal. Is Baronius Press an apostolate of the Fraternity?

I'm not sure if it's specifically put out by the FSSP but they do sell it on their website and it has an imprimatur by Bishop Fabian Bruskewitz  of Lincoln Nebraska.
It's a good through missal, but I found the constant flipping back and forth was starting to get frustrating especially when attending weekday masses.

I second the Saint Andrew Missal.  It's the best out there. 
But one thing is necessary. Mary hath chosen the best part, which shall not be taken away from her.  Luke 10:42
