How Much Use for the 1998 Missal?

I noticed on PrayTell some discussion about the 1998 Sacramentary centering on how much it gets used. I think some churchfolk would be surprised at how much it is utilized.

As a resource containing prayers, I will freely admit I’ve used it now and then for years. It’s more or less like any other prayer book published, and probably a bit better than prayers I might compose myself.

I’ve used some of the Advent and Lent collects for communal Penance liturgies. Likewise the occasional Sunday prayer for the occasional small group prayer service. It’s a good resource. My thinking is that like a lot of books on my shelf, it’s not approved for use at Mass, but there seems to be nothing wrong with using it for other occasions.

How about any of you in the readership? Getting any use out of the MR2 in English? Or another language?
