The Lumen Christi Missal is a viable replacement for, and an upgrade to, all the seasonal missalettes and resources that parishes pay for now. It is the one book that a parish would need. If the pastor bought it and left for another parish, his successor would thank his predecessor for years to come. And I really mean that it could go into any parish, without shock or alarm but rather great relief.
The Lumen Christi Missal is perfect for any parish seeking to further the liturgical renewal called for by the Second Vatican Council.
It is my hope that the Lumen Christi Missal will be well-received, and will serve as a positive resource for parishes to use in the ongoing work of liturgical renewal.
