1950s Hand Missal

The rapid growth of the modern liturgical movement led to a whole plethora of small daily missals being published in the U.S.A. around the time of the 1950s.  Such a fine job was done.  I always prefer these older editions - they feel like a missal and even smell like a missal. 


  1. John, you provide great memories here. I remember these missals well. I received one at First communion and still have it. You made me go and look for it. Found it. Thanks.
