Recommended Roman Missal of the Diocese of Peoria
Description:With the publication of the Roman Missal, Third Edition, Magnificat aims at reviving the great tradition of illustrated liturgical books. The spirit of this ancient tradition was to honor the glory of God through the artistic beauty of the book. Magnificat has been dedicated to providing the most beautiful fonts, inks, paper, and artwork in all of its publications. An exquisitely crafted volume, very practical with reinforced binding, elegantly laid out in typescript that is both beautiful and extremely readable. More than 130 reproductions of sacred art paintings, drawings, woodcarvings and engravings. A work of art in itself that answers Pope Benedict XVI’s wishes to pray in beauty: "Beauty is not mere decoration, but rather an essential element of the liturgical action, since it is an attribute of God himself and his revelation." Officially approved by ICEL and USCCB.
