Haydock Douay-Rheims Bible

The Haydock Bible is a larger-print (12 point) format Douay-Rheims Catholic Bible with a comprehensive Catholic commentary (210 sources used!) and an illustrated Catholic Bible Dictionary and History of the Books of Holy Scripture reproduced from the 1859 edition of Fr. Haydock, whose superb explanations and commntary take up about one-half to two-thirds of each page.  The commentary is drawn largely from the Fathers and Doctors of the Church.  -  Absolutely invaluable!

The copious commentary (which is not large print) and accompanying dictionary make it the best English Bible available if you want to understand Holy Scripture.  If you want a Bible that is not just the Word of God but will help you understand the Word of God, then look no further!  Old Testament with engravings and illustrations, space for recording family births, marriages, and deaths, tables (Biblical weights and measures, etc.), Historical and Chronological index, New Testament with illustrated Bible Dictionary, Historical and Chronological index, and History of the Books of the Catholic Bible.

Excerpt with commentary from Luke 1:27 "To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the name of the virgin was Mary." {The word Miriam or Mary, is expounded by St. Jerome from different etymologies to signify in Hebrew, star of the sea, and in Chaldaie, lady.  Both interpretations admirably well agree with her, who is the glorious Queen of heaven, our patroness and star, to direct us in the stormy ocean of this world. - 'O you who find yourselves tossed to and fro in this tempestuous life, turn not you eyes away from the brightness of this star, if you would not be overwhelmed in these storms.  If the winds of temptations arise;  if you fall among the rocks of tribulation; look up to the star, call upon Mary...' Saint Bernard of Clairvaux}
