Need daily Mass reading suggestions


#1

I walked into my local Catholic Bookstore and got a copy of Give Us This Day for June and Magnificat for July so I could try each of them out.

What is the difference between these types of publications and the fat daily missals I also saw there? I understand the Missals are more cumbersome, but over a period of time subscriptions to each of these publications will add up as well.

I’m a mom of three children ages 4-8. We attend Sunday and 1-2 times per week as my sanity will allow for. My parish has Mass at 7:30 and its just not a good time for us at all so I’m checking out other local churches currently to see which ones will work best for our morning routine.

I basically want something that offers morning/evening prayer as well as the daily mass readings. I love the idea of sticking a copy of the little booklets in my bag, but if the Missals are essentially the same the cost would add up… Do the Missals have daily/evening prayer or do I need the book of Christian Prayer for that?

You might want to take a look at the Daily Roman Missal. It’s a little expensive, but it’s good through the year 2023. It has the morning/ midday/evening prayers, plus many other prayers, as well as the daily mass readings. Has plenty of ribbon markers as well. Hope this helps!

Definitely cheaper than Magnificat for 10 years… Thanks for the detailed info - that was what I was most curious about. :slight_smile:

You're most very welcome! The Magnificat runs about $45 a year. So this is definitely much, much cheaper. I think you'll be very happy with this.

Peace, Mark
