More About Catholic Book Publishing Co
Catholic Book Publishing Corp. is proud of its unique history and long-standing commitment to the publication of timely and timeless Catholic resources. Orphaned through a tragic car accident and with only a fifth grade education, John V. Cavalero founded Catholic Book Publishing Co. on 12th Street in New York City in 1911. Vowing to keep the family together, John, the oldest of six children, took full ownership after buying out his partner’s widow, and gladly welcomed brothers George and Louis into the business following World War I.
Under their direction and hard work, Catholic Book Publishing prospered in the printing and binding industry, working primarily with religious orders. In 1937 the company relocated to two floors of a nine-story facility on West 17th Street, eventually expanding to be the building’s sole occupant. Coinciding with the new location, the company printed its first Missals for Sunday worship and continued to add family members, including John’s sons Howard in 1939 and John, Jr. in 1942. Work on the Douay-Rheims Bible began in 1945, culminating in the publishing of the first Catholic Bible printed in the United States in 1949. Howard Cavalero, a graduate of the University of Notre Dame, was instrumental in developing and launching the St. Joseph Sunday Missal in 1950 and soon thereafter the Daily Missal. On its way to becoming the premier Catholic publisher with over 300 employees, the company added children’s books to its growing list of prayer books in 1955 and then the first Baltimore Catechism in 1961.
With the change to the vernacular mandated by Vatican II, most Catholic publishers lost their backlist and in 1969 Catholic Book voluntarily downsized, selling off its equipment and sadly laying off a large number of the staff. While working with them to find other employment, the Cavalero family and gifted staff including Anthony Buono, who was employed by the firm for over 50 years, developed liturgical books in the vernacular that are the preferred editions to the present day. Despite the uncertainty and constant changes in the Church during this time, the St. Joseph New American Bible and the complete Lectionary were released in 1970, followed by the first complete Sacramentary in 1974 and the four-volume Liturgy of the Hours in the following year. In 1978 the company launched its first full-color St. Joseph Picture Books for children that now number 100 in the series.
Catholic Book Publishing’s third generation, Howard, Robert, Joan and Fran Cavalero, with their dedicated staff continue its long tradition of providing high-quality, affordable, and popular Catholic reading material. Now headquartered in Totowa, New Jersey, Catholic Book acquired Resurrection Press, a trade publisher of contemporary spirituality, healing, and parish resources based in Mineola, NY, in March 2000, and in 2003 added the World Catholic Press imprint to the Catholic Book family. In addition to its renowned liturgical books, Bibles, prayer books, and classic perennial favorites such as The Imitation of Christ, Lives of the Saints, New Catholic Picture Bible, and Picture Book of Saints, they are always involved in developing new products. Recent years have produced the addition of a number of novelty formats for children, including the Golden Book series, Rattle Books, the Turn and Learn series, Tab Books, Clock Books, and a Piano Book. The number of children’s Bibles now available stands at 11, offering a variety of sizes, illustrations, and storytelling styles appealing to a wide range of age groups and tastes.
The company’s 100th anniversary year, 2011, was marked by the release of St. Joseph Editions of the New American Bible, Revised Edition (NABRE) in the spring and three editions of the new Roman Missal in the fall. In 2013, Catholic Book acquired The Regina Press, a 100 year old fourth generation Catholic publisher of children’s books and Bibles, Communion books and adult Prayer books. We deeply appreciate your ongoing trust and confidence in our products and look forward to meeting your needs for years to come.

Christian Prayer Feb 10, 2008
This version of the Liturgy of the Hours is far better than the shorter version. It contains all the feast day readings and a selection of regular readings. If you want to go deeper into the Office of Readings you would do better with the complete four volumes of the Liturgy of the Hours.
Excellent Product Feb 8, 2008
I'm very glad to have purchased the liturgy of the hours, The Christian Prayer Book, it is easy to use, it was delivered before time and it helps me a lot with my mayor commitment to my catholic faith.
Ordered, and the book came just as stated. Jan 20, 2008
Ordered the book, and the book came in the mail just as the offer stated. The order was on time, and in the condition the advertisement stated.
Easy to use and reasonably priced Sep 19, 2007
Over the past few years I have used the complete 4 volume LOTH for daily prayer. I sold it and bought Christian Prayer. Although I miss the extras eg: poem section of the LOTH I find Christian Prayer far easier to use, esp early in the morning. I am a bit unconventional in my usage, ie: I sometimes choose only shorter parts to pray and meditate on. For instance, a particular psalm or reading may speak to my heart so I focus on that rather than plough through the entire section for the day. Christian Prayer is far less expensive as well. It is an excellent value for the price. I recommend it esp for those just beginning to pray with a breviary. It's not the quantity, it's the quality! The peace of Christ and St. Benedict be with you!
Daily Prayer Sep 12, 2007
This is an excellent resource for all Christians and especially Catholics. The Liturgy of the Hours is the Prayer of the Church; by praying it we join with others throughout the world and lift our voices together in unison. Years ago I used this book when praying in community- now I find that praying it alone offers the benefit of helping me center the beginning of my day to the end on God.
