Sometimes, when I am waiting in a church, one of my favorite things to do is to pull out a prayer book and drink in the words contained within it. I find this can be a great source of comfort, particularly during times of distress.
Perhaps you, too, are looking for a trusty prayer companion to accompany you on the spiritual journey. I would like to recommend that you start with The Ave Treasury of Catholic Prayers by Ave Maria Press.
This handy guide contains both familiar prayers and those that might be new--even to long-time Catholics. It is so comprehensive that if you turn to it during a season of specific need, chances are you will find the words of supplication you need.
Whether you are in a mood for the Litany of Saints or an Act of Spiritual Communion, The Ave Treasury of Catholic Prayers fits the bill. Read it and be reminded of the love of God in a whole new, compelling way!
