First published by Benziger Brothers, Inc. in 1910, receiving the Popes' blessing in 1927, this is a reproduction of the 1952 edition of the classic famous prayer book. It contains the text of the Ordinary of the Mass in Latin and English, Mass Devotions, Confessions Devotions, Daily Prayers, Litanies, Stations of the Cross, Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament, Mysteries of the Rosary and so much more.
The unparalleled beauty of this extraordinary guide for men, young or old, is in the counsel offered to furnish a Catholic man setting out into a hostile world with a correct view of the social and religious conditions of modern life and the great need to preserve faith and innocence. This can only be done by putting on the armor of the virtues which are explained by a master of spiritual direction.
This is a spiritual classic "intended to be a support and encouragement to the young man in all the circumstances of his life, and, in particular, to stand by his side at the parting of the ways, when he has to choose a definite state of life--to give him needful suggestions and counsels at this important period of his career in regard to his vocation. By the grace of God, may this little volume be to our young men truly a lighthouse amid the darkness of unbelief and heresy, a bulwark against the ever increasing flood of immorality, an anchor of salvation when the soul is threatened with shipwreck, and a star of hope in the gloom of life."...Fr. F.X. Lasance...
