PORTLAND, OR (JULY 28, 2008) - OCP has released an expanded version of the popular Today's Missal program, offering complete Lectionary readings for Sundays, holy days AND weekdays throughout the year.

"Most parishes have weekday Masses--and a dedicated group attending them," says OCP Publisher John Limb. "We're proud to provide a missal that supports those communities."

Started in 1934 as My Sunday Missal--one of the first "pamphlet-missals" to be printed in English--Today's Missal is now the most widely used missal program in the United States.

Features of the new Today's Missal with Daily Readings include:
• Daily Mass section with complete Lectionary readings, psalm refrain and verses, antiphons, all three presidential prayers, and hymn suggestions

• All the great features of Today's Missal--seasonal music and everything you need for Sundays and holy days for the entire year
• Three seasonal issues, plus the annual Music Issue (included with subscription)
• Excellent second missal--get 50 for your daily Mass chapel
• Large-print size book--fits OCP's large missal covers
• Devotional resource for individual, at-home Scripture study

    I am looking for an online resource that gives not only the daily readings [as on the USCCB site] but all the prayers of the Mass too. Entrance/Opening Prayer, Collect, Prayer over the Offerings, Communion Antiphon/Prayer after Communion. Is there anything like this available? anywhere?

    I see your Large Print Today's Missal that comes from St. Mary's Church in Tampa, FL What version of the Bible is used in the Gospel Readings. Jesus' quotation Dec. 27 Holy Family Day reads "In my Father's House" whereas I recall his saying "About my Father's Business".
