Magnificat: a personal mass companion

When I received the June issue of Magnificat from The Catholic Company, I wasn't really sure what to expect. Was it going to be just another listing of daily mass readings? Another pamphlet that would gather dust on my nightstand?

Instead, I found a complete purse-sized book with all of the readings, prayers, and meditations I could want for each day of the month. Here's what The Catholic Company says about Magnificat:

At 400 pages each month, Magnificat features the complete readings for each Sunday, weekday and feast day Mass; daily reflections on the Gospel from the church’s greatest minds past and present; a fresh take on the lives of the saints.

Each day also includes beautiful prayers for both morning and evening, drawn from the riches of the Liturgy of the Hours; and each issue concludes with a discussion—and quality reproduction—of a masterpiece of sacred art. Magnificat publishes 12 monthly issues a year, as well as two special issues for Christmas week and Holy week.

For myself, it's actually a lot more information than I'm likely to use each day. However, if you're looking for a complete personal mass companion, Magnificat might be exactly what you're looking for... check it out!
