Excellent little prayer book. I got this initially so that I could pray the Chaplet of Saint Michael without having to read the prayers on my phone, but the book is absolutely full of wonderful prayers and devotions that I had never even heard of. The Golden Arrow and the Aspiration to the Holy Face in particular are becoming a part of my daily prayer life. As I mentioned I often used to pray using my phone, but that can be intensely distracting. Prayers and Heavenly Promises is the perfect antidote to that distraction. A must own.
My last copy of Prayers and Heavenly Promises has reached a veritable 20 yrs. of service so it was time to replace it w/ this "updated" copy. I love the new design & color of both the back & front covers & the fact that all of the familiar & cherished prayers & promises have been retained - unchanged. The binding of this book is visibly more sturdy than my old copy so I know it will hold up well w/ frequent use which is exactly what I plan to do, e.g. before Mass, during Adoration & in quiet moments at home & while traveling. This is truly one prayer book that I seldom leave home without!
