Default How to read the Daily Missal?

My grandmother gave me a very old copy of the Daily Missal today (St. Joseph's version, I guess), from the late 1950s. It's really cool, but I have no idea how to read it since the calendar part only goes up to 1999. Any advice on how to use this thing? It's a pre-Vatican II book, so it's a bit alien to me.

It was my grandfather's book. He died five years ago, but I am willing to bet that he is up in Heaven giving St. Thomas Aquinas a run for his money.

Default Re: How to read the Daily Missal?

hang on to it, folks like me are hunting all over the internet for it. that is the kind of missal all Catholic school children received for their own first communion and confirmation, "all you ever need to know about the Traditional Latin Mass" and a jolly good prayer book besides. Mine was a St. Andrew missal and I made first communion in 1957, so am guessing it is veyr much like yours. I am drooling.
Whatever the Lord pleases He does, on heaven and on earth, in the seas and all deeps. Ps. 135

In terms of the calendar for the Extraordinary Form of the Mass of the Roman Rite, this may be helpful: .

The Extraordinary Form will be in Latin, following the 1962 Roman Missal. So your book would be helpful in participating in this Mass.

It could also be useful for study, to see how things have changed.
