Lovely old prayer book, The Catholic Missal, containing all the Masses for Sundays and for holy days of obligation, edited by Reverend John O'connell and Jex Martin, The Catholic Press, Chicago, Imprimatur Samuel Cardinal Stritch 1953, published in 1954. 944 pages with index, color photos and art, easy to read text, red leather or faux leather binding with color art of The Last Supper, gold tipped outer page edges. The classic Missal,. 7" tall, 1 & 3/4" thick, in good usable condition with strong binding and mild age wear, some age darkening etc, but still a very nice copy that we enjoyed for years in our personal collection (we had several of these). Presentation page had been filled in in pencil which we have erased.
