Hello Craig and Donald,

I tried to put these in as suggestions but I'm having some difficulty in getting signed in.  I'll post them here.

As Verbum grows and you look at more ways to help Catholic clergy, I would like to request that you add additional ritual books.  As a Catholic Deacon in my parish, these five are the main one's I use:

Rite of Baptism for Children The Order of Celebrating Matrimony Order of Christian Funerals Book of Blessings Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults

Steve,

These types of resources are on my list to license.  I've heard the same thing from a number of deacons and priests.  Basically, I'm aiming at having all of the texts for each of the sacramental rites and RCIA.  There's a two-steps licensing process on texts like these because we need not only an agreement with the publisher of the text but with the USCCB as well.

Stay tuned....

Will that make it so Verbum can sell them world wide?  [[Some Logos items have been US only]]

USCCB owns only US rights; Canadian ritual books are not identical to US.

Please include the Lay Ritual book for those living in rural areas dependent upon circuit priests. 

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."

Although rights may or may not be obtained to sell the American rituals beyond the States--consider the 2011 English US Roman Missal.

I would love to see this, too. Any/All of the Rites/Order books would be great to have in Verbum.

Even as a layman/former seminarian I would love to see these - Especially "The Book of Blessings"!!!
