Prayers and Heavenly Promises
Publication Date: August 1, 1993
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!
This prayer book is 130 pages and easy to carry in a shirt pocket. Joann Carroll Cruz collected prayers and notes their benefits, namely indulgences. What is included are the great prayers of our Faith with notes regarding the origin and heavenly promises. While here on earth, it is a great prayer book to guide us to a great eternal reward.
