Published originally between 1946 and 1952, we have handsomely reprinted all 3 volumes each measuring 8 5/8" x 5½" in simulated leather hardbound with gold-embossing, sewn binding, a marking ribbon, and per the originals: red and black text throughout and plainchant notation! Each volume is completely indexed in both Latin and English! Even more important for those who adhere to the traditional Rituale Romanum is that Fr. Weller prudently retained the Vulgate Psalter for all of the Latin renditions of the antiphons and psalms, while faithful English translations of the various liturgical hymns were rendered by Fr. Matthew Brit, OSB. As stated in the Foreword of his first completed volume (Vol. III in 1946), Fr. Weller compiled his set of The Roman Ritual for the clergy "as a manual and reference" and for the laity's "interest and enthusiasm for the rites and prayers of so important a part of the liturgical books of the Church." His indispensable 3-volume set was especially prized for its thoroughness in treating of the liturgical laws pertaining to each rite, as well as his copious and instructive commentaries. Once very difficult (and expensive) to obtain secondhand, it can now be yours in brand new condition and for a reasonable price!
