The Collection of Masses of the Blessed Virgin Mary includes the Missal, revised to conform to The Roman Missal, Third Edition, and its companion Lectionary. Printed in easy-to-read, two-color type, these well-crafted ritual books feature a blue hardcover stamped with the distinct and beautiful art of Martin Erspamer, OSB; silver-gilded pages; and ribbons. They provide the formularies required for celebration of the forty-six Masses in honor of the Blessed Virgin Mary, which are distributed across the seasons of the liturgical year (three in Advent, six for the Christmas season, five in Lent, four for the Easter season, and twenty eight for Ordinary Time).
The Lectionary contains the biblical readings for each Marian Mass, together with the Responsorial Psalms and the Alleluia verse or Verse before the Gospel reading.
