    Book details

This treasury of prayers for the third Christian millennium offers practical guidance for an increasingly busy world.

The book's extensive range includes favorite Catholic prayers such as the Rosary and the Stations of the Cross, along with others that may be less familiar, organized under many different themes and topics. Helpful introductions and a pattern of daily prayers make this book nothing less than a course in Christian spirituality.

The book is for people approaching Christian prayer for the first time as well as for those who want to begin afresh. It will be especially helpful to young people and the parents and teachers who want to help them learn to pray in the living tradition of the Church.

'Most prayerbooks leave the reader to get on with the praying himself. Rather different is The Catholic Prayerbook from Downside Abbey. The editor, Dom David Foster, draws on the great saints of west and east as well as King Charles I and even anonymous boys at Downside School. Its great value for a pitifully inadequate praying man, such as myself, lies in his thoughtful introductions to the major prayers and discussion of the best way to go about the exercise. Sometimes one can stick to established texts, at other just use their opening words to launch into our own. If this goes badly, switch back to somebody else's prayer, he counsels.'David Twiston Davies, The Catholic Herald --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
