A vast repository of forgotten Catholic prayers, devotions & meditations. When this big prayer book first appeared half a century ago it was hailed as the most original ever compiled in English. In one convenient volume, Fr. Lawrence Lovasik distills the patrimony of the Church, gathering together prayers for every conceivable occasion. This 448 page magnum opus contains every type, verse and prose, litanies, novenas, and even short ejaculatory prayers. Prayers familiar and obscure, by great saints and by anonymous authors. Fr. Lovasik provides a prayer -- usually several -- for every need and desire.
Organized into 12 convenient parts
The prayers for a wide variety of needs include some for the much-forgotten missions and conversion of non-Catholics. The last section features prayers for the faithful departed, including a prayer for each day of the week for the souls in Purgatory, the Heroic Act of Charity along with its explanation, and My Last Testament.
A special feature is a copious section on the Mass, providing meditations on each and every part, from the prayers at the foot of the altar to the Last Gospel. Fr. Lovasik presents prayers to help pray the Mass from several different aspects, such as: Jesus, Divine Victim; the Passion of Christ; and the Virgin Mary.
