Bibliography of Current Liturgical Books

Over the years new liturgical books are issued and as many priests move in and out of new assignments this time of year it is good to take stock of what books we are using for Mass, the celebration of the sacraments, and other devotionals throughout the year.   Below is a brief bibliography of current liturgical books and the editions and the current book that we should be using.  Please contact me with any questions or concerns.

 


 

The years written in bold type set are the current books that we should be using.  Years listed in parentheses are past editions.  Years listed in italics are the current Latin typical editions.  Lastly an underlined year indicates the current Spanish language liturgical book
