FRANKLIN PARK, IL (February 1, 2011)-- World Library Publications, the music and liturgy division of the J.S. Paluch Company, is now accepting pre-orders for their Deluxe and Value Ritual Editions of The Roman Missal, Third Edition.

WLP has received special permission from the Vatican to include treasured manuscript art from the Vatican Apostolic Library in both of their editions of this new English translation of the Mass. Samples of the artwork can be seen at

Both books measure 9 x 12. The Deluxe Edition is constructed of durable, dark red genuine leather, with a pre-publication retail price of $395. The cover artwork, depicting a host and chalice on the front of the book, is foil-stamped in gold and green and surrounded by engraved Florentine-inspired scrollwork. The page edges are gilded in gold. Text throughout the book is two colors (black and deep red) on natural parchment-colored paper. The type is large and legible, for ease of reading and proclaiming the texts, even in low light. High-quality ribbons and sturdy genuine leather tabs accent the book. In addition, World Library Publications' award-winning music engravers have set all the chants in the Missal in a clean, easy-to-chant style that respects the sense of the text and helps celebrants to sing them more effortlessly and effectively. The notes are large, well-spaced, and easy to read. Words are not broken and phrases are not interrupted at the ends of lines. The font used for the words that accompany the chant notation is the same clear and dignified font used throughout the rest of the Missal.

WLP's Value Edition provides the same interior features of the Deluxe Edition, at a pre-publication retail price of $195. It is case bound in bonded leather, with a lightly simpler cover design that maintains the nobility of the Deluxe Edition.

The Roman Missal, Third Edition, will be used for the first time in U.S. parishes on the First Sunday of Advent, November 27, 2011.

Copies of both Editions can be pre-ordered now from, or by calling 1-800-566-6150, e-mailing, or by faxing orders to 1-888-957-3291.

Additional resources to assist with the implementation of The Roman Missal, Third Edition, can be found at, including several new and revised Mass settings, Rev. Paul Turner's Pastoral Companion to the Roman Missal, and an audio recording of the newly translated Eucharistic Prayers I-IV.
