The Catholic Prayerbook: From Downside Abbey
This treasury of prayers for the third Christian millennium offers practical guidance for an increasingly busy world.
Cardinal Basil Hume, in his foreword, writes that the need for us to be people of prayer has never been more urgent. We know that unless we are deeply rooted in a sense of God's presence and able to refer all things to God, then our pilgrimage into the future will be marked more by uncertainty than by peace which is God's gift.
The book's extensive range includes favourite Catholic prayers such as the Rosary and the Stations of the Cross, along with others that may be less familiar, organised 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.
