Reviews - What do customers think about A Book Of Irish American Blessings & Prayers?
Wonderful- If only all of the Mass could be this good!!! Aug 15, 1998
Warm, Affirming, Honest, Blunt. If the life of a typical Catholic could reflect half of the faith and love of this book, the Mother Church would be in much better shape. Ftr. Greeley once again comes through (as usual) with flying colors. PS. The "Catholic Household book of Blessings" has become very difficult to come by- this isn't a substitute- but a GREAT stopgap- !
