Personal devotion to Our Lord Jesus Christ is an essential component of authentic Christian spirituality. In recent decades skeptical approaches to theology and Scripture have tended to diminish our awareness of the need for personal devotion to Our Savior. This leaves people with a feeling of emptiness and isolation.

Fr. Benedict has made this anthology of profound prayers, drawn from all of Christian history, available to those who experience a hunger for devotion. Beautifully illustrated with classic art, this book will be a valuable companion for personal prayer, for times of recollection, and even for those times of critical spiritual need.

Readers wishing to grow in their devotion to Christ and increase their love for Him will find the prayers in this book helpful and inspiring. Ranging from the prayers of early Church martyrs and Fathers and including those of mystics and theologians, it provides an introduction to the Church's vast patrimony of twenty centuries of devotion to Jesus Christ. Fr. Groeschel adds his own insights throughout the book.

This book, combining profound prayers with wonderful spiritual insights and inspiring art-makes a beautiful gift for all who would seek to know and love Our Lord Jesus better. Illustrated.

"How important it is for us to try to grow with Jesus and increase our knowledge and love of Him. This book is meant to do exactly that. These prayers will help you understand how Christians throughout the ages have lifted their hearts and minds to Jesus Christ."
- Fr. Benedict Groeschel, C.F.R.

great collection of prayers, but artwork scans are grainy
How I miss Fr. Benedict, and may he rest in the peace of Christ.
* This is a fine collection of mostly prayers but also some theological writings (JP2, Wm of St-Thierry, etc).
* The description says "Beautifully illustrated with classic art" but on the ebook that doesn't hold true.  The scans of the artwork were done in black-and-white mode with poor contrast settings.
* The footnote links work great,, so some time was put into this digitizing effort.  It's just a shame that the art images didn't come out better.  Still, it'll be useful to have all these prayers at hand.
