About the Revision
The USCCB undertook the revision of Catholic Household Blessings and Prayers for several reasons. The liturgical calendar was outdated. Booksellers had been requesting a more substantial binding, suitable for gift-giving. We wanted to include some of the newer prayers by Pope John Paul II and Pope Benedict XVI as well as some prayers published by the USCCB. In addition, we added new prayers for stewardship, vocations, retirement, and the like. An entirely new thematic section of Scripture excerpts was added as well. The revision includes a Scripture index and a first line index to make it easier to use. As such, the revised text is substantially longer than the current edition. It will be bound in bonded leather with gold stamping, and colored end papers, and includes a presentation page. The Scripture excerpts used are taken from the Lectionary for Mass or the Liturgy of the Hours.
