Books For Prayer & Meditation & Novenas


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.

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.

Jesus, Mary, Joseph Novena Manual by Fr. Stedman. 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 readilyl understand. It is primarily a prayer book. It is not enought to read the Scriptures. we must meditation upon them. 156 pages.
