Our recently updated edition of The Compact Catholic Prayer Book
includes the new translation of several prayers used at Mass. The Compact Catholic Prayer Book
combines the traditional prayers of the Catholic faith with newly written prayers for contemporary concerns, such as the conversion of terrorists and victims of cancer and AIDS. Catholics will use this handy treasury of prayers each day to pray the blessings of morning, noon, and evening and to recite the short, one-sentence "prayers on the run" for busy times. Another section features prayers for special needs, among them prayers for sick children, engaged couples, or those near death. Prayers to Mary and the saints, prayers written by saints, and classic devotions such as the Stations of the Cross and the Rosary are also part of this book, along with all four Eucharistic Prayers and prayers to prepare for the Sacraments of Reconciliation and Anointing.
