A perfect daily companion for all Catholics. It contains prayers, readings, and devotions for the Liturgical Year, including one week of condensed Morning and Evening Prayer from the Liturgy of the Hours (abridged). Ideal for communal or private use.
I thought that it would be for each day of the year not for the 7 day week. But, still I find it helpful. Best Uses: Reference; Cons: Not What I Expected; Describe Yourself: Everyday Reader; Pros: Informative
A Wonderful Daily Companion
A Benedictine Oblate (Minneapolis, MN, May 11, 2010)
I bought this book years ago and still use it.
Contains one week of daily prayers excerpted from the psalter of the Liturgy of the Hours for Morning and Evening. Each day begins with a 1 page reflection as a focus to the day. The second section contains readings, prayers and devotions for the seasons of the year, as well as Eucharistic devotion and in honor of Mary. Last is a rich selection of readings from the saints and other spiritual writers.
I often carry it with me for those spare moments of meditation or quiet time while waiting for appointments, etc.
Small book, rich in content. Best Uses: Gift, Older Readers, Travel Reading; Describe Yourself: Bookworm; Pros: Deserves Multiple Readings, Easy To Read, Well Written
