Blessed be God, Forever
This newly reprinted 2010 Blessed be God is an exact replica of the 1960 edition. It contains 748 pages of essential Catholic prayers and more in an exquisite pocket- or purse-size package. It is the most comprehensive collection of traditional Catholic prayers you will ever find.
This little book includes regular and special prayers; popular devotions; favorite novenas; meditations and readings for the Holy Bible and The Imitation of Christ; and epistles and gospels for Sundays and Holy Days. There is a lovely collection of prayers and meditations for making a Holy Hour.
Catholics who attend the Tridentine Rite, Traditional Latin Mass will appreciate the Mass, taken from the traditional 1962 Missale Romanum, presented in double columns in both English and Latin. The Table of Moveable Feasts has been updated through 2041 and St. Joseph's name has been included in the Roman Canon.
Beautifully detailed vintage lithographs illustrate the inner pages of this leatherbound edition. The brand new reprint also features gilded page edges and a ribbon page marker sewn into the binding.
The beauty of the exterior of this powerful prayerbook can not come close to the beauty found on the pages within. This complete collection of timeless prayers and devotions is something every Catholic should hold near. It will bring joy, consolation, and hope to its readers for many, many years. Blessed be God, forever!
