Please notice this review refers to the recent (8/07) republication of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishop's excellent family prayer book, now leather bound and excellent for gifts and for daily multiple use in the home. The family that prays together stays together.

Now with a sturdier binding and completely revised to include new prayers by the new popes, and to update the Liturgical calendar and cycle of feast days, and with expanded scriptural readings drawn from the liturgical cycles, this book of prayers deserves a central point in every home. It even contains a useful version of the Liturgy of the Hours in which all may gracefully partake.

An excellent wedding gift, birth gift, new home gift, gift for anyone and for any family occasion, even for an old hermit like myself.

The first section contains Basic and essential prayers, as well as prayers for before attending the Eucharistic celebration, Acts of the Theological Virtues (Faith Hope and Charity), Marian prayers, prayers for the sacrament of Reconciliation, plus pious invocations. The second section generously provdes daily prayers, including a great Liturgy of the Hours, prayers upon waking, prayers for meals, prayers at work, at service, at study and for almsgiving. Here we find prayers at noon, upon returning home and for bedtime.

In the third section of this well-laden spiritual banquet we discover prayers of the seasons and day, including Sunday prayers, Advent, Christmas, Lenten and Easter prayers, plus other Feast days and US national holidays.

21 of 22 people found the following review helpful By Carol Blank TOP 1000 REVIEWER on September 16, 2007
This newly revised Catholic prayer book from the U.S. Catholic Bishops is heavily weighted toward Scripture, with passages chosen specifically for almost every topic. Supplementary sources include the lectionary, works of several Catholic organizations, such as the Partnership on Disabilities, and official prayer books of other Christian denominations. Its leather binding, high quality paper, and easy to follow layout ensure that it will be a welcome addition to Catholic homes. In the introduction, Bishop Donald W. Trautman, chairman of the U.S. Bishops' Committee on Divine Worship, writes that this resource can help us all fulfill the Gospel exhortation to "pray always (Lk 18:1). He urges families to "make it a part of family dinners and holiday celebrations, of bedtime routines and special occasions."

Major topics are devoted to basic prayers, the kind most often committed to memory; daily prayers such as the morning offering and grace before and after meals; days and seasons of the Church year; Catholic living; litanies; and Stations of the Cross. A calendar of saints is also provided, as are two indexes, one of scriptural citations and the other of first lines and common titles.

In Part IV, Family Prayers from Birth to Death, the bishops remind that "Whether in times of joy or times of grief, God is always with us." The subtopic on prayers and blessings for family members is centered on family members, the household, birth and adoption, childhood, marriage, sickness or infirmity, and death and grief.

Part VI, Prayers for the Church and the World, address such topics as Christian unity, the culture of life, evangelization and missions, and social justice. Part VIII, God's Word in Times of Need is made up entirely of scripture passages grouped around issues such as anger; forgiveness; love; quiet; and trouble, crisis, and conflict.

This book contains all the essential prayers for Catholics (and non-catholics alike). The print is easily read, and the book is well organized. It is leather bound and substantial. It should last a very long time.

I carry this book to every event I attend, from meetings to birthday parties. There are blessings, prayers & readings for every occasion. It has already added spiritual value to every event. It is also extremely easy to read and has instructions for ministering these blessings and prayers if you are interested. This book is a real treasure to me.

I find this book to be very helpful in finding Prayers for different occasions in the life of an average person. It contains Blessings and Prayers for almost any encounter in life. It is a book that makes a nice gift for newlyweds, someone moving in to a new home, or anyone else. I purchased one for myself and one for a gift. It has a lot of Prayers that we have heard before, and some we may not have heard, but will find very beautiful. I keep mine on the coffee table along with my Bible and have had people pick it up and ask where I got it. A good Evangelizing tool.

This book is a great resource that will help you enrich your prayer life. It contains blessings for every single imaginable situation in life, be it prayers for the unborn, born, everything in-between (prayers for the sick,children, dead)and even prayers for the household and objects like your car. I especially liked the blessing ritual for already blessed holy objects.

It also contains the Liturgy of the Hours (in a condensed format of course)for Morning, Evening and Night prayer, Seasonal prayers, traditional Catholic devotions like the Stations of the Cross, litanies and I could go on and on....

Just like it states in the book. This is not a book that is to remain unused, no, it to be used as a family on a daily basis. I would give this book 10 stars if I could and highly recommend it.
