Hello! This is my first post. I've lurked for a while and am hopeful that the faithful CA participants can answer my question.
I work for a parish. Because we know that we will have a large number of people attending Christmas Mass who haven't been catechized in the 3rd Edition of the Roman Missal, we are producing a comprehensive worship aid for that weekend. I have been unable to find an electronic version of the Mass that I can cut-and-paste into a worship aid. Does anyone know of one?
I have an iPad and use iMissal for my private use. All of the information I need is available there, but the app won't allow me to copy the text.
Extract the pertinent portions of the Ordinary and produce them on a double-sided piece of paper (reproducing the number of copies you need).
ICEL has a very liberal copyright policy. Read it here.
No royalty is charged for reprinting ICEL translations in a publication for use at a specific Mass or celebration of an individual congregation or institution, for example: convention program booklets, jubilee Masses, ordinations, baptisms, first communions, confirmations, funerals, weddings, etc., provided that the following conditions are met:
a. the publication is not produced by a publishing firm;
b. the publication is not sold;
c. the appropriate copyright notice appears on the cover, inside cover, or title page;
d. the official editions of the texts are followed exactly.
So if you reproduce your own, you are in the clear.
A PDF of the Ordinary is here. Take the portions that are pertinent and make sure the texts are precisely copied. And give ICEL credit.
