I must have asked myself this question a dozen times in the course of my "pilgrimage" to Haiti and Jamaica to gather interviews for this book. Much of the time my question was an exclamation of shock.No matter that I had sen many photos of starving children and sick and homeless individuals. Nothing could have prepared me for the sights and sounds and smells of the poverty. I was now seeing firsthand, for the oppressiveness and depth of it...." - Preface from All You Really Need To Know About Prayer You Can Learn From The Poor

"Since the promulgation of the Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy of the Second Vatican Council, all of us have experienced the first steps toward a renewal of the liturgy of the Church. We see clearly now that this liturgical renewal cannot be a matter of texts and rubrics only; the heart of this renewal is prayer. And the key to renewing the prayer of the Sunday assembly is rekindling a love for and practice of prayer in the hearts of those who make up the Church. Prayer must happen in the 'little churches' - the households, the families - if the Sunday assembly is to become a community of prayer. The Council taught that the liturgy 'is the primary and indispensable source from which the faithful are to derive the true Christian spirit' (Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy, 14) How can that spirit come to fill and give shape to our lives unless it is there in the prayers of individuals and families?..." - Foreword from Catholic Household Blessings And Prayers

"I can still see the small forest of healthy green pines along the Black River in Northern Ireland. The profound emotion that these trees stirred in me is strongly wedded to my memory. All week long, as I walked in the forest, touched the branches, leaned against the trunks of trees, and lay on the soft ground of pine needles, I felt a deep wave of intense emotion while a great peace settled in my soul. I stood silently amid the trees, taking in deep breaths of an air that seemed both earthly and eternal. I hummed. I sang. Each time I walked into that sacred place, I felt as though I never wanted to leave. Something in that dark, earthy, moist, forest felt like "home" to me. Something in that quiet realm spoke to me of an energy dwelling in the land long before I was there, an energy thick with life and vitality...." - Foreword from A Contemporary Celtic Prayer Book

The Book of Common Prayer

By Century Hutchinson

This book is in very good condition. There is little to no wear on the cover boards. The previous owners name is written on the inside of the front cover board and his seal is affixed on the contents page. "It hath been the wisdom of the Church of England, ever since the first compiling of her Publick Liturgy, to keep the mean between the two extremes, of too much stiffness in refusing, and of too much easiness in admitting any variation from it. For, as on one side common experience sheweth, that where a change hath been made of things advisedly established (no evident necessity so requiring) sundry inconveniences have thereupon ensued; and those many times more and greater than the evils, that were intended to be remedied by such change: So on the other side, the particular Forms of Divine worship, and the Rites and Ceremonies appointed to be used therein, being things in their own nature indifferent, and alterable, and so acknowledged; it is but reasonable, that upon weighty and important considerations, according to the various exigency of times and occasions, such changes and alterations should be made therein, as to those that are in place of Authority should from time to time seem either necessary or expedient. Accordingly we find, that in the Reigns of several Princes of blessed memory since the Reformation, the Church, upon just and weighty considerations her thereunto moving, hath yielded to make such alterations in some particulars, as in their responsive times were thought convenient: Yet so, as that the main Body and Essentials of it (as well in the chiefest materials, as in the frame and order thereof) have still continued the same unto this day, and do yet stand firm and unshaken, notwithstanding all the vain attempts and impetuous assaults made against it, by such men as are given to change, and have always discovered a greater regard to their own private fancies and interests, than to that duty they owe to the publick...." - The Preface from The Book of Common Prayer

"Since the approval of the current edition of The Book of Common Prayer in 1979, there has been an expressed need to have a concordance to the Prayer Book. the question posed by this desire was, "Just how can such a concordance be produced accurately and economically?" Over the last nine years, there have been many discussions and proposals of methods to accomplish this massive attack. However, each plan was found to be unworkable for various reasons, and the subject would rest until a new idea was presented...." - Preface from The Prayer Book Concordance

"A word of explanation about why this book has been produced and how it differs from the full version of Celebrating Common Prayer is probably in order. Many who use and enjoy celebrating the Office from Celebrating Common Prayer have said that, particularly when they are travelling, the book plus Bible is simply too heavy and cumbersome. So we have included a selection of short bible readings which follow the same daily and weekly pattern as the psalms; so you do not need to carry a separate Bible...." - Preface from Celebrating Common Prayer: The Pocket Version

A Manual Of Ceremonial

By Marion J. Hatchett

This book is in very good condition.There is little to no wear on the front, back and spine of the cover boards. The edges have slight wear and the corners have minor bumping. The previous owners name is written on the inside of the front cover board. The pages are relatively still white, crisp and clean of all markings. "The results of research in liturgy within the last few decades and the impact of the liturgical Movement Have caused manuals on religious ceremonial which were used in the past decades, such as, for example, A Prayer Book Manual published by the Episcopal Evangelical Fellowship on the one hand, or Ritual Notes by E.C.R. Lamburn and various "Missals" on the other hand, to seem as outdated and as lacking in liturgical nsophistication as, say, the Schofield Reference Bible for Biblical scholarship or the David C. Cook Series for Christian Education. Even the more sophisticated older works such as the pamphlets on ceremonial which have been published by the Alcuin Club or the Anglican Society now seem highly dated. The Church Army has published several helpful and sophisticated customaries for certain rites or days. (A Customary for the Holy Eucharist; A Handbook for Maundy Thursday and Good Friday; The Virgil of Easter Eve) which can be highly recommended, but aside from those little is available that has been arranged with the American Book of Common Prayer or with Services for Trial Use or Authoirized Services 1973 in view. It is an effort to fill this gap that this manual has been compiled...." - from A Manual Of Ceremonial

The pages are yellowed and tanned "This book is intended to help clergy and people to celebrate those holy men and women who are commemorated as 'Lesser Festivals and Holy Days" in the calendar of The Alternative Service Book 1980. Although 'Commons" are provided in that book for each class of saint (martyr, bishops and so on), these lack any particular reference to individuals. Thus many of those who are accustomed to a daily eucharist have found that repetition of this material, and especially the Collects, fails to provide a variety rich enough to celebrate the individuality of each saint in the calendar...." - Introduction from The Cloud Of Witnesses: A companion to the Lesser Festivals and Holy Days of the Alternative Service Book 1980

The animals loved him and lived in an idyllic, undisturbed harmony. Everything was lovely in the garden. No, not quite. God looked on his human creature and was concerned, for his life was not all unalloyed bliss. God said, "It is not good for man to be alone." And God asked Adam to choose a mate for himself from among the animals which paraded before him in procession. God would ask his human friend: "What about this one?" Adam would reply: "Not on your life! No, thank you!" And so God decided to put Adam to sleep and produced from his rib that delectable creature, Eve; and when Adam awoke he exclaimed: "Wow! This is just what the doctor ordered...." Introduction, from An African Prayer Book
