All three versions of this beloved missal include the complete Order of Mass with official chants as well as entrance and Communion antiphons and prayers and sequences for important ritual moments from the Roman Missal, Third Edition.

  • Breaking Bread offers synopses of the Lectionary readings and only the responses for the responsorial psalms and Gospel acclamations, for parishes that prefer to listen to the readings.
  • Breaking Bread with Readings includes full readings from the Lectionary as well as all the verses for the responsorial psalms and Gospel acclamations for parishes that like to follow along with the lectors.
