Current English altar Missal - where can I get one?

    We want to arrange a votive Mass for Saint Joseph towards the end of this year for my English students (in Brazil). Can anyone point me to where to get either that Mass or the entire Missal (if the excerpt alone is not available)? I want to make sure we have the correct translation. We need the altar Missal, for the priest. I can buy the Missal if that's the only option, but am not sure where the best place to buy would be and want to make sure I am asking for the right thing.

    Do you have to have a lectionary for the readings, or is that just to facilitate a person besides the priest reading?

    And additionally, does the 'chapel edition' from Liturgy Training Publications have the same content but just a smaller size? (I'm guessing?) Has anyone seen these in person?

    Yes, a lectionary is needed as the readings are not printed in the missal. The chapel edition is just a smaller size, same content.

    Also, the different publishers may have different artwork / pagination / etc

    Catherine, the Missal is the priests parts, the Lectionary is the readers part. You need both for Mass. Also, there is a 'study edition' of the Missal that is much cheaper. Check with your priest to see if that would be acceptable. You can download the readings for the Solemnity of St. Joseph here

    For online resources, which should provide printable versions of everything you need, check out these:

    The Roman Missal and Lectionary proper texts for various celebrations:
    http://www.liturgies.net/Liturgies/Catholic/roman_missal/index.htm

    For a votive Mass for St. Joseph you would choose the texts from either March 19 or May 1.

    For the Order of Mass (you have to click on a link in the page to get the Eucharistic Prayers):
    https://www.catholic-resources.org/ChurchDocs/Mass-RM3.htm

    I bet if you poke around on those sites, they will provide you with everything you need.

    The universalis app, on Windows, Android, or Apple, will give you access to a full Mass text, and will provide the Ordinary in Portugese as well (though I don't know whether that is as in Portugal or Brazil, if they differ). Have a look at https://universalis.com/index.htm
    In the full program you can copy the text to a document as well, it might violate copyright, unless you can claim it is for an educational purpose. Fragments attached.
