Missal” I’m holding, not a Bible. A missal is a liturgical book containing all instructions and texts necessary for the celebration of Mass throughout the year. I think I still have this one. We didn’t use it for long. Not long after this, the RCC came out with “missalettes”, small, paperbound booklets that contained the cycle of Mass readings for several weeks or several months.
Later, in my early 20’s, I was devout enough that I thought I might want to become a priest, too.
