The Blessed Sacrament Prayerbook
The Blessed Sacrament Prayerbook is split into two parts, the first containing prayers needed throughout one’s day, including morning and evening prayers, the Ordinary of the Mass, the Propers for many common feasts and masses, and a current chart of movable feasts. The second part of the book contains many novenas and prayers to a variety of different saints as well as some indulgenced prayers, and a special emphasis on all of the prayers necessary and recommended for devotional visits to Our Lord present in the Blessed Sacrament. This book is beautifully bound in a flexible leather cover with elegantly embossed with 24K gold lettering and image. It also features gilt edges and rounded corners with a satin ribbon page marker.
The Blessed Sacrament Prayerbook employs florid and traditional language with hierarchical pronouns. The rich language of prayer that one sees in Extraordinary Form hand missals is mirrored in this book. The extensive collection of Morning Prayers is unparalleled. Here is one of them, representative of the content in the rest of the book:
“I adore Thee, O my God – one God in three Persons; I annihilate myself before Thy majesty. Thou alone art being, life, truth, beauty, and goodness. I glorify Thee, I praise Thee, I thank Thee, and I love Thee, all incapable and unworthy as I am, in union with Thy dear Son, Jesus Christ, our Saviour and our Father, in the mercifulness of His Heart and through His infinite merits. I wish to serve Thee, to please Thee, to obey Thee, and to love Thee always, in union with Mary immaculate, Mother of God and our mother, loving also and serving my neighbor for Thy sake. Therefore, give me Thy Holy Spirit to enlighten, correct, and guide me in the way of Thy commandments, and in all perfection, until we come to the happiness of heaven, where we shall glorify Thee for ever. Amen.”
