    Adventures In Prayer by Charles Henry Brent

    This book is in good condition. There is some wear to the cover on the front, back and spine. The edges have wear also but in particular on the spine. There is some bumping to the corners. The gilt lettering on the spine is fading.There is a dedication from one priest to another on the front end page. The pages are tanned and yellowed. The binding is tight and solid. "The spirit of Bishop Brent's Prayers, both published and private, can best be interpreted by three statements of his own: "An artistic prayer, a prayer carefully prepared, so far from being less is more spiritual by virtue of its literary finish." Again he records: "My father, were it not for prayer which opens wide the door to Thy heart, where would I be? Blessed be Thy goodness in making it easy for Thy children to approach Thee. Nothing human is too small for Thee to care for. Thy understanding caress suits every sorrow; Thy wise counsel illumines every problem; Thy limitless pity lightens every burden. Hence it is with confidence I bring to Thee my prattle." Later he finely declares: "No man is safe, unless he swings his life between a risk and an opportunity." The first statement justifies his conscious will to pray beautifully;the second permits him free and ingenuous phrasing; the last indicates his lifelong passion for adventure into the Divine." - Introduction by S.S. Drury, Adventures In Prayer

There is no bumping or fraying on the cover boards. The pages are clear of any markings. The pages are white, clear of any markings and crisp. "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

"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

    Peoples Mass Book

    This book is in very good condition. There is some wear on the front, back, edges, and spine of the cover boards. There is some fraying on the cover boards. The pages are white, crisp, and clear of any markings. "This section of the book gives the user all the material which he needs to participate fully in the celebration of the Eucharistic Liturgy. The proper chants are printed in full so that they can be chanted or recited. The community should listen to the official proclamation of the message by the celebrant or reader and the prayers of the priest. A helpful but short commentary on the theme is often arbitrary since many celebrations just do not have a central idea. Whereas some of the readings were deliberately combined to develop a theme, other arrangements of Epistles and Gospels have been so shuffled through the centuries that there is little natural relationship between them. The commentary given here is a possible way of interpreting the readings around one point of meditation and instruction...." - Introduction To The Proper Section from Peoples Mass Book

"Most of the objections urged by the Dissenters against the Church of England, to justify their separation from it, being levelled against its form and manner of divine worship, prescribed in the Book of Common Prayer , &c., are, in the following Discourse, answered, as fully as its brevity would permit. So that, though the principal design of this book be to instruct such as are friends to our Church and Liturgy; yet it is not impossible but that, by the blessing of God, it may in some measure contribute to the undeceiving some that are enemies to both, (such I mean as are disaffected to the former, upon no other account, than a prejudice to the latter;) especially could we, by first convincing them of the Liturgies in general, prevail with them to take an impartial view of what is here offered in behalf of our own. To this end therefore, and to make the following sheets of as genera luse as I can, I shall, by way of Introduction, endeavor to prove these three things; viz." - A Rational Illustration Of The Book Of Common Prayer Of The Church Of England

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
