Leather Missal Covers

Carmel Books is pleased to be able to offer missal covers made by a small family run apostolate, the Catholic Leather Guild.

These envelope-style leather covers wrap around your missal, holding it together in a stylish traditional manner.

The stylish covers come in two standard sizes. One for the Angelus Press and similar-sized hand missals, and another one to fit the size of the Baronius Press hand missal.

They can be manufactured in various colours, which is very handy for distinguishing your own missal from those belonging to other members of your family.

Stylish and tough-wearing genuine leather covers retail at £25.00 plus p&p. The colours available in leather are black, burgundy, brown, forest green, olive green, blue and red.

Leatherette (fake leather) style covers are a great alternative for children’s missals. They can keep the missal safe and can be wiped clean if needed. These covers retail at £15.00 and are available in black, brown and burgundy.

If you have a missal needing a different size cover, you can send the measurements, preferably in centimetres, to Carmel Books and the Catholic Leather Guild will supply a quote for it.

Coloured ribbon markers for use in missals or other liturgical books are also available at the price of £5.00 plus p&p. They contain five coloured ribbons attached to a leather backing that slips into the spine of the missal.

The Feast of Saint George

23rd April, 2015

Patron of England, Russia, Syria, Palestine, Spain, Portugal, Greece, Serbia, Montenegro, Malta, Gozo, Bulgaria, Lithuania, Georgia, and many provinces of Christendom.

Prayer in Honour of Saint George

O GOD, Who didst grant to St. George strength and constancy in the various torments which he sustained for our Holy Faith; we beseech Thee to preserve, through his intercession, our faith from wavering and doubt, so that we may serve Thee with a sincere heart faithfully unto death.

Through Christ Our Lord

Invocation of St. George

O FAITHFUL servant of God and invincible martyr, St. George, favoured by God with the gift of faith, and inflamed with an ardent love of Christ, thou didst fight valiantly against the dragon of pride, falsehood and deceit. Neither pain nor torture, sword nor death, could part thee from the love of Christ. I fervently implore thee for the sake of this love to help me by thy intercession to overcome the temptations that surround me, and to bear bravely the trials that oppress me, so that I may patiently carry the cross which is placed upon me; and let neither distress nor difficulties separate me from the love of Our Lord Jesus Christ. Valiant champion of the Faith, assist me in the combat against evil, that I may win the crown promised to them that persevere unto the end.
