Wonderful Prayer Book Jun 16, 2007
I really like books written by Janice Connell. She has such a way of writing about the Blessed Virgin. This book is a lovely book to keep at home. You can read the entire book at once, or keep it to refer to at different times in you life. I was very touched by many of the prayers. I also liked reading the prayers of those in old times. It is a special book for any Catholic, or anyone who prays to Our Lady.

When things aren't going well Feb 20, 2002
I find this book to be a great book to keep by my bed when I am troubled. I found a copy of it in my father's belongings when he was dying. Now I read it when I have troubles in my marriage, with my children or at work. I find the tone of the book very soothing.
