Implementation of Misal Romano, Tercera Editión — The Misal Romano, tercera edición uses the Missal from Mexico as its base text, while incorporating adaptations approved by the U.S. Bishops, including the saints’ days of the U.S. calendar. This new Misal has an arrangement that is similar to the English version of the Missal, making it more user-friendly for priests. The new book also includes Masses for feast days from various Spanish-speaking countries. The Misal Romano has been available for purchase since May 1 from three publishers: Catholic Book Publishing, Liturgical Press, and Magnificat. The book was approved for use beginning with Pentecost Day (May 20), and it will be mandatory for Masses celebrated in Spanish in the U.S. starting on the first Sunday of Advent (Dec. 2).
