More on Gospel Processions

Let's talk books. What do you process when you process? The bare lectionary book, a large Bible, a covered lectionary book?

We process a bare lectionary book. Not happy with it. I want a decent cover for it. Any suggestions?

Large Bible, the more extravagant the covering the better (preferably gold trimmed or silver).

Large Book of the Gospels (NKJV)with a beautiful gilded metal cover. A steal at $1600 (purchased with a gift from a retired LCMS pastor who often visits our parish).

At DK Brunner & Son Vestments we can get you a decorative cover for your lectionary to match your paraments. Cost is around $30 for damask and banding; additional cost for embroidered symbol from one of the standard catalogues, if desired.

Of course, it's easier to match the paraments if you just get a whole new set with the cover. . . but I'm biased.

We have a large NKJV Gospel Book with a silver cover. Deeply carved/engraved Romanesque cover with Christ and the 4 evangelists. A gift from a parishioner.
