Beautiful prayer book Jul 29, 2006
The Manual of Prayers in burgundy leather is a beautiful collection of prayers written in modern English. While written for seminarians, it provides the lay person with the opportunity to connect on a very spiritual level with God through a variety of prayers for most every occasion. The snap cover is a plus, allowing one to use prayer cards to mark special prayer locations without worrying about them falling out or being disrupted if one accidentally drops the book while carrying it. A fine choice for anyone wanting to get closer to God.
A Wonderful Prayerbook. Sep 30, 2005
I am happy that I purchased this prayerbook, for not only is it attractive with its leatherette cover and gilded pages, but it is also well bound with thick pages guaranteeing a lifetime of use. Its bold print makes for easy reading, and the prayers within are both simple and profound, earnest and powerful ... a must for any Catholic. I enjoy having available the Latin equivalent of the popular prayers. In the midst of all the daily distractions from prayer in this fast-paced world, one will find this attractive book a tempting invitation to spend time with God.
Manual of Prayers - A truly wonderful book Dec 31, 1999
After purchasing the Manual of Prayers, I found my prayer life had greatly improved. I have been greatly blessed by it. It comes leather bound in 2 colors, black and burgundy. It was such a blessing fort me that I had to get one for a friend. It is good for those who have a hard time praying. It makes it easier to start a prayer or gives one ideas on how to pray. It is a wonderful book that is nothing short of priceless.
The most wonderful and complete prayer book ever! Jun 18, 1999
My priest introduced me to this prayer book. As a cradle catholic of 40 plus years I am truly blessed to own a copy. It contains basic Catholic prayers, novenas, prayers for various needs and also has the Latin form of prayers. It is beautifully bound in black leather, gilded page edges, 2 ribbon markers, and a handy case to keep it in. It is truly heirloom quality. Will make a great gift for cradle catholics as well as converts. Originally written for the students of the Pontifical North American College. A must have for all Catholics.
Beautiful, comprehensive, and holy Oct 17, 1998
This book is beautifully printed and bound and built to last a lifetime's pilgrimage in the faith: heavy cream paper with full gilt edging, black and red type, leatherette binding, and two ribbon markers, all inside a sturdy matching boxcover.
Its handsome exterior compliments the beauty of its substance--classic prayers that possess noble simplicity and quiet grandeur. Most of the prayers are given in Latin as well as English, and there are also some prayers in Spanish, French, German, and Italian.
Compiled for the priests of the North American College in Rome, the prestigious seminary for outstanding American clerics, it is just as valuable for the laity.
Its 400+ pages, fully indexed, hold these Contents:
Liturgical prayers; Prayers in Italian; Prayers in Spanish; Prayers before Mass; Prayers at Holy Communion; Prayers after Mass; The Sacrament of Penance; Morning Prayers; Prayers at Meditation or Study; Evening Prayers; Litanies; Devotional Prayers; Prayes to the Blessed Virgin Mary; Prayers to Saint Joseph; Occasional Prayers; Prayers for Various Persons; Prayers for Various Needs; Prayers of Various Saints; Various Novena Prayers; Selected Chants.
Every classic prayer of English-speaking Catholics is included, but there is a wealth of lesser-known prayers, especially those penned by the saints (both famous and obscure).
In form and content, this is the finest Catholic prayerbook available. In it, the mind of the Church reveals itself fully, while the Church's heart pulses in adoration, contrition, thanksgiving, and supplication.
