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.
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.
It also has the full Latin Mass and the readings and gospels. Although it contains so much material the book is just the right size, small enough to fit in your pocket or handbag. I can highly recommend it. Thank you !

Nice small size for carrying in purse to Mass. I like the selection of prayers that include litanies.
