The Book of The Gospels: The reverent act of processing The Book of the Gospels from gathering to altar and from altar to ambo is an important part of the liturgical celebration. As the most visible book to the assembly, The Book of the Gospels is meant to convey the power of the word of God to our communities. Using traditional Roman design, our Book of the Gospels emphasizes the glory of the word through the use of beautiful gold- and silver-stamped liturgical art. The cover art includes an enhanced version of the cross that introduces the Classic Edition Lectionary of which our Gospel book is a component. Each symbol on the cover has special meaning: The cross's four medallions represent the four evangelists; the symbols in the lower right and left corners represent the people of God; and those in the upper right and left corners represent the heavenly hosts. Its rich cover art and impressive size truly makes our Book of the Gospels a handsome work for emphasizing the dignity of the Word.

Hardcover, The cover art is bold, clearly visible to those near and far. It bears the traditional images of the four evangelists in colorful foil: the angel, Matthew; the lion, Mark; the ox, Luke; the eagle, John. A two-column page design makes it easy to find the identification of the reading and the rubrics, thus preventing mistakes in proclamation. The gospel texts are printed in large 17-point type, arranged in sense lines. Page turns have been eliminated wherever possible. Feasts and many Sundays are illuminated with full-color art. There are more than 30 original pieces of art in the interior of the book. Included are all Gospel readings for Sundays, solemnities, feasts of the Lord, and all ritual Masses.
