Reviews - What do customers think about Saint Benedict's Prayer Book for Beginners?
A good simplification of the Liturgy of the Hours Sep 3, 2000
This volume from Ampleforth Abbey Press provides Morning, Evening and Night Prayers in a very simplified form as an introduction to the Liturgy of the Hours. It provides a serious of traditional prayers, stations of the cross, rosary, commendation of the dying, hymns in Latin and English etc.
Morning prayer follows a two week cycle and consists of a prayer, a psalm, a Scriptural reading, the Our Father, the Hail Mary and a concluding prayer. Evening prayer follows a one week cycle in the same pattern. Night prayer is unvarying - a prayer, a psalm, a reading, the Nunc Dimittis a concluding prayer and blessing with an optional antiphon to Mary.
An interesting touch is that each page has, in the position of a footnot, a proverb or statment for reflection.
This volume is exceptionally well printed and easy to use. It serves as an excellent starting point for praying of the psalms and Scripture.
