Books For Prayer & Meditation & Novenas

DIVINE OFFICE/OFFICIUM DIVINUM

What does it gain a man to have his whole life perfectly organized but to lose his soul?

It's so easy to lose sight of God in our busy world. But the Church gave us the answer from the very beginning when she structured her official prayer around a framework of the psalms prayed eight times a day so that within one week, all 150 psalms are said.

Here you have the most critical hours of the Divine Office for the layman in the world. Prime is the perfect Morning Prayer, Compline the perfect night prayer, and Sext is for the middle of the day.

This is better than private prayer; it's the prayer of the entire Mystical Body because you pray with one heart with the millions of other clerics, religious and laymen around the world who have prayed and are praying these exact same prayers, AND because you adopt the intentions of the psalmist as you pray.

When understood correctly (this edition has a short explanation preceding each psalm), these are the intentions for which Holy Mother Church wants us to pray for ourselves, for the Church and for all the members of the Mystical Body of Christ.

Our Lord, our Lady, and the Saints prayed these psalms.

Patience - Thoughts on the Endurance of Suffering and Sorrows

Conformity to the Will of God - from the writings of St. Alphonsus Liguori

God Directs All Things for Our Best Nothing happens in this world but by the direction or permission of God. "Nothing," says St. Augustine, "occurs by chance in the whole course of our life. God overrules all." Let these words penetrate into the depths of our souls; then we shall never regard what comes to us from God's hands as hurtful. "God is so good," writes St. Dionysius, "that He, who alone needs nothing for Himself, is constantly producing good for others. He is so glorious and magnificent that through the unattainable and inexpressible fullness of His love He conducts all things to their perfection."
Yes, God wills only our good, our salvation. It is His will not merely that no one should perish, but that all should save and sanctify themselves.

My Daily Bread is a summary of spiritual doctrine so simplified and arranged that everyone can come to a knowledge and practice of the principles of the spiritual life. It is divided into three books which treat respectively of the three ways of the Spiritual Life. (1) Purification -- we must reform that which has been deformed in us by sin. (2) Imitation -- we must conform to Christ that which has been reformed. (3) Union -- we must transform through Christ that which has been condemned. This book must be read, not only with the head, but with the heart. We must think and pray. This daily exercise will transform belief into realization, theory into practice. This work is authored by Rev. Anthony J. Paone, S.J. It is an invaluable guide to spiritual growth.
My Imitation of Christ by Thomas a Kempis needs no introduction. For five centuries it has been the most popular spiritual book second only to the Sacred Scriptures. It presents the fundamental principles of the spiritual life. The Christian soul is invited to follow Christ Who is the Way, the Truth and the Life. As one studies the content of this marvelous work one become convinced that without the Way there is no going, without the Truth there is no knowing, without the Life there is no real living.

My Way of Life by Walter Farrell, O.P., S.T.M., and Martin J. Healy, S.T.D. is a pocket edition of the Summa of St. Thomas Aquinas. Here the Summa is presented in a simplified form. This vast summary of Thomistic teaching which deals with every worthwhile truth from a to z, from the attributes of God to the zeal of man has been distilled into this little volume. It is, in truth, a miniature and simple Summa for every man. 650 pages.

My Daily Psalm Book arranged for every day of the week. The psalms are prayers in which God Himself teaches us how to pray; for they were written under the direct inspiration of the Holy Ghost. Herein we have the answer to the question: "What prayers shall I say?" The psalms are the vital presentation of God's inspirations and man's aspirations; they are the ideal manifestation of man's hunger and thirst after God and of God's loving response to man. Of great age, they are ever new and appropriate. They are as satisfying and stimulating to us of the 21st century as they were to men before the birth of Christ and down through the Apostolic and Middle Ages. 365 pages.

My Meditations on Saint Paul by Rev. James Sullivan, MS. The message of the Acts is a particularly relevant one at this time when there is renewed interest in the nature of the Church and the theology of the Apostolate. It is interesting to observe how well the author has woven the Epistles of St. Paul into this message. So many books have been published since Vatican II but, as has been observed, while they were written to inform the theologians they have not moved the Faithful in the Pew. This book is written for everyman in language he will readily understand. It is primarily a prayer book. It is not enough to read the Scriptures. we must meditation upon them. Read. Reflect. Pray. 560 pages.

My Daily Life by Anthony J. Paone, SJ Do not expect to read this book as you might read most other books. It is designed to give more than mere information. It offers the reader a broader understanding and deeper appreciation of human nature as it operates within him and in those with whom he must deal. It is calculated to enlarge the reader's view of human behavior and strengthen his ability to deal more realistically with others. This book tries to help the reader get the most out of daily life. It is a guide to greater peace of mind and increased spiritual vitality. Its ultimate goal is a "more satisfying self-possession and a more enlightened self-management throughout this earthly life." To absorb its message into your very being will require time, reflection, application, and persevering practice. We would recommend the advice of Francis Bacon: "Read not to contradict and confute... but to weigh and consider. Read. Reflect. Pray. 315 pages.

My Meditation on The Gospel by Rev. James E. Sullivan, MS. "My Meditation on the Gospel" offers short but fruitful reflections on the life and teachings of Christ. "Let us meditate on the Gospels" urges Blessed Pope John XXIII. "Amidst the confusion of so many human words, the Gospel is the only voice that enlightens, draws, comforts, quenches thirst."
This book must be read not only with the head but with the heart. We must think and pray. to understand the Gospel fully, we must live the Gospel. to learn Christ, we must live Christ. (Rt. Rev. Msgr.) Joseph B. Frey.Read. Reflect. Pray. 627 pages.
