Vatican not to reprint 1962 Missal [Fr. Z]

Our friends over at Rorate Caeli are reporting that Petrus says… (whew)… that Father Giuseppe Costa, the new director of the the Libreria Editrice Vaticana (the Holy See’s publishing arm) are saying that they will not be reprinting the 1962 Missale Romanum.

To which I can only say…


The bindings of their liturgical books are pretty awful. They are expensive. The books fall apart.

We should let the private sector handle this. Market forces will produce better books than those the Holy See would print.
