Product Details

The St. Gregory's Prayer Book is a beautifully produced leatherette prayer book compiled by the Ordinariates established by Pope Benedict XVI and drawing on the riches of the Anglican liturgical heritage and the exquisite Cranmerian language of the Book of Common Prayer to further enrich the panoply of Catholic liturgy and devotion.

The text includes ancient English collects, introits and hymns available together for the first time for the whole Church as approved examples of Catholic liturgy. In addition to the Liturgical texts, classic translations of traditional prayers and devotions for use in the Church and in the home have been lovingly compiled and edited in St. Gregory's Prayer Book.

This lovely book of prayers is user friendly and accessible to Catholic faithful with a love of beautiful language and in search for supplementary resources for their prayer life that are both new and at the same time respectful of Church tradition. With gold blocking on cover and spine, and a silk ribbon marker.

Excellent resource for English-speaking Catholics
The lovely book does not replace the Divine Office and the Mass but is meant to flow from them and into them, in the tradition of "primers" and similar texts.  (For the office, search amazon "Ordo 2019 for the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of the Southern Cross", and you'll get a book by "Nigel McBain". That Ordo includes the full, usable text of the Office, which you can supplement it with the US/Canada Ordinariate Ordo from the latter's web site, for calendar purposes.) The SGPB expresses what Pope Benedict XVI called "the Anglican Patrimony," with prayers from throughout the history of English (and English-speaking) Catholic and Anglican Christianity.
I am excited about this book being part of our normal prayer at home, especially those fit for liturgical seasons and particular needs.
This could be a go-to prayer book for any English-speaking Catholic, even those without a relationship to the Anglican patrimony. It will be one of my standard gifts for confirmations, etc.
