First of all, this is a solid and durable looking little leather-bound volume. It's meant to be carried about in a coat pocket and actually used — just just to look pretty on a shelf. I'm going to keep it in my car for when I can make it to adoration down the block from the office, and I plan to bring it with me when I go to confession — the examination of conscience and related prayers are excellent.

This book contains a comprehensive collection of Catholic prayers and devotions, including:
• the Holy Hour
• Prayer before the Blessed Sacrament
• Forty Hours' Devotion
• Devotion to the Sacred Heart
• the Stations of the Cross
• Copious Marian Prayers and devotions
• other Saint devotions
• Prayers for the Living
• Prayers for the Souls in Purgatory
• Virtues, Works of Mercy, Beatitudes, other similar Catholic mediations
• "prayers to be said every day" including morning and evening sets
• How to say the Rosary (missing Luminous Mysteries, of course)

Being a reprint of a 1960 edition, there are some things that are less relevant to Catholics today. The readings and mass prayers are for the older rite, so will not be useful at a Novus Ordo parish. The Calendar of Saints' Feasts is slightly different. And some of the prayers are different than what you may hear other people say. The confiteor is different, but also the last part of the Salve Regina, which is often said communally upon conclusion of a Rosary. The book appears to be missing the familiar Prayer to St. Michael entirely, which surprises me.

Also, this volume is actually printed by "Preserving Christian Publications" (pcpbooks dot net); Angelus Press appears to be a distributer of theirs.

There is one ribbon, which is nice to have.

Blessed Be God is without question the BEST prayer book I have ever owned. It is both a missal (with 1962 Tridentine Latin Mass + readings for Sundays and principal feast days) and an all purpose devotionals/prayer book. It has all the best litanies, morning prayers, evening prayers, prayers for the living and deceased, prayers for the souls in purgatory, prayers for each day of the week, monthly prayers, prayers for both before and after Mass & communion, prayers for confession, "old school" examination of conscience (with a thorough breakdown of the ten commandments, precepts of the Church, 7 deadly sins, etc.), 40 hours devotion, Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament, Ceremony of Matrimony, Tables of feasts and fasts, Table of movable feasts, Devotions to the Holy Face, the Five Wounds, the Precious Blood, Devotions for holy days and special feasts, and lots more. I can not possibly recommend this enough, especially if you are looking for a traditional leather prayerbook and missal that fits in your pocket.

I love this prayer book and use it often. It's similar to the wedding prayer book that my Grandmother had when she walked down the aisle in the early 50's that she gave to me. I love her prayer book but it's old and needs special care. So I don't like to handle it too much. This prayer book I can use every day without having to worry about it falling apart. I love the inclusion of the Latin Mass translated to English and the many prayers listed for days of the week, months of the year, Sunday Vespers, Church seasons, Forty Hours, Novenas, and more. I highly recommend this book. I was even able to take it to my local Christian story and have my name put on the cover.

This little book is great! It has all the readings for the EF Mass and also many many many prayers I had nerver heard of. I own the 1962 missal from Baronius press, but this little book fits right in my purse and it's just perfect. It's a little stiff at first but once it's broke in it opens up just fine.

This book is full of many different devotions and prayers for almost every occasion. With this book I can easily incorporate prayers into my day, from waking up to going to sleep. It was well worth the money.

I love this book so much that I have bought extra copies and have given them to family and friends. I even donated one to the Adoration Chapel Library.
It has every prayer you will ever need. It has prayers for all seasons, days and weeks. It has Mass prayers, many devotions, novena's, prayers for the dead and living etc. It also has lessons on how and why to pray. It has extensive useful lessons on what God expects of us.
It is a must have prayer book! Pass it down to many generations.

If you need a good comprehensive Roman Catholic prayer book, Blessed Be God is one of the two traditional prayer books that I would recommend, the being My Prayer Book by Father Lasance.

This edition of Blessed Be God is a sturdy pocket-size edition. The list of prayers is excellent. There is a section with Bible verses by topic that can be used for contemplation. There are even excerpts from the Imitation of Christ for reflection. The traditional Latin Mass with scripture readings for Sundays and Holy Days with applicable prayers makes this a great book for travel. I especially liked the inclusion of Sunday Vespers.

If one is interested in an Eastern Catholic prayer book, I recommend the Publican's Prayer Book published by Sophia Press which is run by the Melkite Eparchy of Newton.
