Reviews - What do customers think about Pocket Book of Catholic Devotions (Pocket Book Series)?
Marred by cheesy illustrations Oct 31, 2009
St. Joseph's could have put twice as many devotions in this little book if they hadn't handed over so much space to simpering, circa 1940s pious illustrations. I don't really need a greeting card Jesus picture to help me focus on prayer; in fact I find myself distracted by it. I've had this problem before with little prayer books, unfortunately. Not sure why the publishers are so sure that people who pray regularly must also be people who appreciate this kind of Precious Moments stuff.

This is a brand new book. An excellent tool in worshiping the Almighty. It came to me in new condition. A must for all of todays Roman Catholics.
