The Catholic Prayer Book, Book Review
When given the opportunity to review The Catholic Prayer Book I jumped on the occasion. This large print edition offered by The Catholic Store certainly is the best! Compiled by Msgr. Michael Buckley and with forewords by both Cardinal O'Connor (Archbishop of New York) and Cardinal Basil Hume (Archbishop of Westminster) it inspires Christians of every denomination through the Holy Spirit, not just Catholics, to pray.
Praying is essential to everyone who truly believes and absolutely necessary for life. Catholics prayer books have been throughout centuries treasured possessions usually given at special occasions such as first communion, confirmation and marriage.
Many changes have occurred in the World and in the Church reflecting a need for all Christians, individuals and groups alike to reach out to one and other and pray.
The Catholic Prayer book provides us with old and new prayers, both liturgical and sacramental and devotional meditations. An excellent prayerbook the Catholic Prayer book is bound to become a favourite for each of us in our daily devotions.
Its inspirational format will lead Catholics in prayers whilst introducing Christians everywhere to the many facets of our beliefs.
I recommend the large print edition to anyone who reaches out to their prayer book nightly (so much easier once you take off your glasses...) but especially for the elderly as we all remember the very small print of our personal prayer books!
I gave it a 4 stars rating!
