Essential item Feb 13, 2008
This book contains all the essential prayers for Catholics (and non-catholics alike). The print is easily read, and the book is well organized. It is leather bound and substantial. It should last a very long time. R. Childs Alabama

It is a great book to go to daily at family time to pray. It has daily prayers along with prayers for special reasons and for the different seasons. Excellent!!
Catholic Household Blessings and Prayers Jan 15, 2008
I find this book to be very helpful in finding Prayers for different occasions in the life of an average person. It contains Blessings and Prayers for almost any encounter in life. It is a book that makes a nice gift for newlyweds, someone moving in to a new home, or anyone else. I purchased one for myself and one for a gift. It has a lot of Prayers that we have heard before, and some we may not have heard, but will find very beautiful. I keep mine on the coffee table along with my Bible and have had people pick it up and ask where I got it. A good Evangelizing tool.
Destined to Become a Family Heirloom Sep 16, 2007
This newly revised Catholic prayer book from the U.S. Catholic Bishops is heavily weighted toward Scripture, with passages chosen specifically for almost every topic. Supplementary sources include the lectionary, works of several Catholic organizations, such as the Partnership on Disabilities, and official prayer books of other Christian denominations. Its leather binding, high quality paper, and easy to follow layout ensure that it will be a welcome addition to Catholic homes. In the introduction, Bishop Donald W. Trautman, chairman of the U.S. Bishops' Committee on Divine Worship, writes that this resource can help us all fulfill the Gospel exhortation to "pray always (Lk 18:1). He urges families to "make it a part of family dinners and holiday celebrations, of bedtime routines and special occasions."
Major topics are devoted to basic prayers, the kind most often committed to memory; daily prayers such as the morning offering and grace before and after meals; days and seasons of the Church year; Catholic living; litanies; and Stations of the Cross. A calendar of saints is also provided, as are two indexes, one of scriptural citations and the other of first lines and common titles.
In Part IV, Family Prayers from Birth to Death, the bishops remind that "Whether in times of joy or times of grief, God is always with us." The subtopic on prayers and blessings for family members is centered on family members, the household, birth and adoption, childhood, marriage, sickness or infirmity, and death and grief.
Part VI, Prayers for the Church and the World, address such topics as Christian unity, the culture of life, evangelization and missions, and social justice. Part VIII, God's Word in Times of Need is made up entirely of scripture passages grouped around issues such as anger; forgiveness; love; quiet; and trouble, crisis, and conflict.
