I’m not posting this to hawk product from a publisher. But I did find it interesting that LTP is discounting the chapel edition 25% and the big book 65%.
We needed a second missal here. And the bigger book is now $10 cheaper than the chapel edition.
I suspect the chapel edition was much more popular simply because it was smaller and more manageable.
How are your missals wearing these days? I think bigger, thicker books are harder to manage with care. When the drop, they damage easily. And when an open book gets a little off-center, that binding has a lot more force tearing at it.
