Traditional prayer and devotional books.
« on: January 09, 2019, 08:52:57 PM »
There are several prayer books and daily devotional books out there including breviaries, diurnals etc.

I have looked at several prayer books like Blessed Sacrament, My prayer book by Fr. Lasance and Blessed be God. The Blessed sacrament seems most complete and at the same time compact and small. There is also Divine Intimacy and daily meditations by Cardinal Bacci.
What do you personally use and what would you recommend?
I would like to buy a prayer book that would serve me for a long time.

I really like the My Prayer Book from Fr. Lasance; it's what we use for our family prayers. I've not seen the Blessed Sacrament book.

My suggestion would be to look for whatever is made with the most quality if you are buying new.

Also, whatever will assist you the most. No point in buying something you won't use or that frustrates you.

I prefer the Blessed be God text.
