Largest Catholic publisher in Italy prints hand missal

The largest Catholic publisher in Italy, Edizioni San Paolo (the Italian branch of the Society of Saint Paul's publishing house, St. Pauls), has just released a brand new simple hand missal for the laity.

Ordo Missae includes the motu proprio Summorum Pontificum, the Ordinary of the Mass in Latin and Italian, common prayers, and the rite of Benediction in the ancient rite.
