Reviews - What do our customers think?
This RCIA team member loves it!  Mar 20, 2007
As a member of an RCIA team at my church this little book is loaded with ideas for opening and closing prayer. It touches upon all of the topics that we teach during our sessions. I keep mine tucked into the bag with my notebook and other essentials and always have it with me for any occasion.
a good prayerbook for beginners  Sep 16, 2005
I think this prayerbook would probably be most useful for mature teens, young adults, and fresh converts. It offers little more than the usual traditional prayers, which is why I find it so disappointing. I do enjoy the short prayers for morning and evening and the obscure devotions such as prayers to the five sacred wounds but I don't think they warrant an entire prayerbook of their own.
Wonderful Little Prayer Book!  Aug 13, 2005
This book is in a small format, ideal for traveling or putting it in your bag. I purchased this book while on vacation. There are all sorts of prayers there including the format for the Mass and daily ones. It even has the Stations of the Cross. It is organized well and it's easy to find what you need. As I mentioned it is small and may be difficult for some people to read. I'm very pleased with it though. I think it's the best prayer book I've ever had.
A contemplative Praying Companion  Jul 15, 2005

Breviary or Horologion?
This fine devotional prayer book got many features of the liturgy of the hours for praising The Lord, a Cathedral form of praise known in the West as The 'Divine Office' or breviary. In the East it started as a monastic office, in St. Pachom'ius' cenobitic Agpiya or Horologion, whose Basilica version was preserved in Bishop Serapion Horologion, now in the British Museum.
The Cyrillic rule of prayer, "Pray to The Father, with the name of The Son, in The Holy Spirit" by St. Cyril, the pillar of faith, a Doctor of the Catholic Church, is here expressed in the Trinitarian devotion. It starts rightly with thanksgiving reflecting the ancient Roman Alexandrian fellowship from Athanasius to Cyril. The Christian life is a vocation of continuos unceasing prayer, which this small book intends to inspire you to share in every occasion.

Prayer and prayers:
The Jesus prayer is a strong sign of the ecumenical trend of the Roman Church towards the Catholic or Universal Church, as a friend of mine insists our Lord asked to gather His mystical body, this is his message to be One. The Jesus prayer was the Lords own on the Publicans thought:" Lord have mercy on me a sinner, Kyria Elaison. St. Macarius called it "the arrow prayer", his disciple Evagrius Ponticus carried it with him, same way John Cassian, carried with him the Pachomian tradition into south France, where the Benedectine continued the way.

Introducing, 'The Western Rite':
"Sacraments and the Divine Office preserve a similar, direct, clear-cut outline. In the West as in the East, the sanctification of man's activities has been the subject of a considerable ritual development, with blessings available for all manner of things and occasions. The Western Divine Office (Horologion), like the Eucharist, is adaptable to varying degrees of solemnity from choral performance with chant to private recitation. Tidy groups of psalms together with hymns, brief Scripture lessons, versicles and prayers are assigned to each of the day hours." (the Rt. Rev'd Alexander Turner, SSB)

A Praying Companion:
Msgr. Michael Buckley,SJ Compiled a beatiful praying companion, based on daily needs of the friars of Mendicant Orders whose members carried with them, on their travels that started in the twelve century. Same tradition is diffused in the Roman and their Unite Eastern Churches of a single all purpose salvific aid. This is a life sharing devotional prayer book, being Horologion or Breviary, does not prevent it to be a quiet but forceful way to carry your prayerful longing, Reformed or Orthodox you share in one Holy Catholic Apostolic Church, a praying body.
One of the best Catholic prayerbooks available...  Jul 21, 2004
Twelve years ago, as a new convert to Catholicism, I bought this book as a guide to Catholic prayer. I couldn't have made a better choice. This volume has the perfect blend of contemporary and ancient prayers generously interspersed with religious poetry and quotations. It contains the traditional prayers of the Church mixed with personal prayers of saints and others who are seeking God. It balances these prayers beautifully. One will find all the basics, for sure, plus others that might inspire you in a different prayer direction. I have since gone on to collect prayerbooks, Catholic and non-Catholic, with a collection now totaling over 150 volumes. This prayerbook contains a unique selection of prayers I have never seen in any other volume. Hands down, this is the prayerbook I return to again and again. Whatever mood I find myself in, or especially when I'm not sure what to pray, this is the book I go to first. Were I to select only one from my collection to recommend, this would be it.
