I'm very particular about what I look for. Though this book is modern English, I'm very old school. Also, this book is not very organized as far as morning, evening, and vespers prayers are concerned. Plus the fact, it contains prayers from various Saints that can be overwhelming as to which one to use on a regular basis.
Love the Catholic Prayer Book

My older children are just getting ready to be confirmed into the Church. This helps then with the prayers that are not the norm.

I am ordering two this time. I always wind up giving them away, not always to Catholics! They are a great Evangelization tool. :) I'm sure I shall be ordering more! Great little book.

This prayer book is great. It has the new revised prayers. The only prayers missing that I would have liked are the novenas and special seasonal prayers. Describe Yourself: Casual Reader

It's small enough to carry in your purse or pocket,so I can even pray at work. It has prayers by and to so many different Saints. It has so much information about the sacraments,the ten commandments, and about our beliefs as Catholics.The only thing I would add is a list of Holy Days OF obligation. I cannot express how much comfort this prayer book has given me. I use different prayers for different days. There are so many varieties. It truly would make a welcome gift for friends and family, one that will show them how much you care. Best Uses: Gift, Learning about Saints, Older Readers, Reference, Special Needs, Teaching prayers to child, Travel Reading; Describe Yourself: Bookworm; Pros: Deserves Multiple Readings, Easy To Read, Great teaching aid, Informative, Must carry with you alway, Short and long prayers, Well Written
Wonderful Purchase Choice

This is a thourough pocket prayer book. The amount of content is surprising for its compact size. It contains a wonderful selection of prayers (for example but not limited to: daily, blessed trinity, saints, angels, mass), Psalms, and basics of the Catholic faith. It's the perfect size to take along everywhere. This one prayer book has replaced my stack of prayer cards and pamphlets held together with a rubber band!
