Leaflet Missal® prayerbook

The Leaflet Missal® prayerbook, founded by Father Paul Bussard of the Archdiocese of St. Paul-Minneapolis, has been available since 1929. It is the ancestor of all periodical missals. As of now, the Leaflet Missal prayerbook is published in six issues a year, distributed to parishes, schools, and individuals. Why do people love the Leaflet Missal prayerbook?

Leaflet Missal

  • No missal of comparable size has larger print. It's easy to read and easy to use.

  • Its convenient size fits in the pew rack, can be held easily in your hands, and does not pile up on the floor.

  • The Scripture readings, as far as possible, are presented without a page turn, as in the new Lectionary. This feature avoids the distraction of page rustling and noise.

  • The uniquely beautiful art work of Virginia Broderick adorns the Leaflet Missal prayerbook throughout, inspiring prayer and highlighting the meaning of the Scripture.

  • Music for the Psalms and acclamations is presented in place, to avoid page turns and foster participation.

  • The weekday Masses are more complete than those in other missals. For example, the complete verses of the Psalm for each day are printed, with the refrain after each verse. This feature makes the Leaflet Missal prayerbook a great resource for daily prayer.

  • People love to sing the hymns and Psalms. These songs come from many publishers and many composers, traditional and contemporary. The music is the strongest feature of the Leaflet Missal prayerbook.
