Excerpts from the Roman Missal
("Book of the Chair')
Excerpts from the Roman Missal (also known formally as the "Book of the Chair") represents a worthy and welcome solution to a commonly voiced concern: The Roman Missal is a large and heavy book, difficult for alter servers (who are often children) to hold for the celebrant and to carry around the sanctuary. Developed by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops and approved by the Vatican, Excerpts includes only those texts of the Missal that are used by the celebrant at the chair. The resulting volume is approximately half the size of the full Missal.

Children's Liturgy of the Word 2017-2018
Children’s Liturgy of the Word provides liturgy preparation pages and liturgy guides for every Sunday and Holyday of Obligation. Each liturgy guide includes words of dismissal for the priest celebrant, an open and closing prayer, petitions for the Prayer of the Faithful, and the full text of an interactive homily/feflection that connects the Word to the life experiences of children.
Children’s Liturgy of the Word allows the power of the liturgy to act on children, facilitating their growing relationship with God and allowing them to testify to their own experiences of God’s presence. Instead of following a traditional classroom model of a lesson followed by an activity or game, this resource closely follows the structure of the Liturgy of the Word being celebrated in the main assembly, as stipulated by the Directory for Masses with Children and the introduction to the Lectionary for Masses with Children. This resource makes leading a liturgically appropriate celebration of the Word easy, even for inexperienced leaders.
