This reformated and updated edition of A Prayer Book for Catholic Families is an invaluable resource for Catholic families who value traditional prayer but are not always sure how to incorporate it into contemporary life. Designed with the typical modern family in mind, the book teaches families what to pray and how to pray-and does so in a way that doesn't require a lot of time or any special knowledge on their part. It includes all the basic Catholic prayers, covering a broad array of topics and situations in life.
