 Our Description

This little prayer book is packed with prayers for all occasions, everyday, Benediction, Mass, Saints, the Blessed Mother and many more.


Jacquelyn Lindsey


"Prayer is portable.  It should not be confined to any particular place or moment. It should flow as a continuous stream of love and communication with God.  St. Paul advised us to 'pray without ceasing' (1 Thess 5:17).

The opportunities for prayer are endless.  How many quick prayers can be whispered as we wait in line at a traffic signal or the grocery store?  As St. John Chrysostom noted:  'It is possible to offer fervent prayer even while waling in public or strolling alone, or seated in your shop,...while buying or selling,...even while cooking.'

When we visit the sick at home or in the hospital, a shared prayer can enrich the visit and offer peace and strength in far greater measure than simply delivering flowers or magazines.  When temptations or troubles disturb us or loved ones throughout the day, a quick prayer can bring relief.

I hope this little prayer book will find itself in your pocket, purse, briefcase, or backpack as you go about your daily routine.  This is a book to be used often, a book to be prayed, not read.  Carry it with you so you can delve into the richness of our Catholic Faith's most beautiful prayers whenever a free moment allows."

St. John Chrysostom

Feast Day:
Roman Rite Calendar - 09/13

Patron Of: Against Epilepsy, Constantinople, Istanbul, Speakers, Lecturers, Orators, Preachers

Also known as
    Greatest of the Greek Fathers
    Giovanni Crisostomo

    John's father died when he was young, and he was raised by a very pius mother. Well educated; studied rhetoric under Libanius, one of the most famous orators of his day. Monk. Preacher and priest for a dozen years in Syria. While there he developed a stomach ailment that troubled him the rest of his life.

    It was for his sermons that John earned the title "Chrysostom" (golden mouthed). They were always on point, they explained the Scriptures with clarity, and they sometimes went on for hours. Made a reluctant bishop of Constantinople in 398, a move that involved him in imperial politics. Criticized the rich for not sharing their wealth, fought to reform the clergy, prevented the sale of ecclesiastical offices, called for fidelity in marriage, encouraged practices of justice and charity.

    Archbishop and Patriarch of Constantinople. Revised the Greek Liturgy. Greek Father of the Church. Proclaimed Doctor of the Church in 451.

    John's sermons caused nobles and bishops to work to remove him from his diocese; twice exiled from his diocese. Banished to Pythius, and died on the way.

    c.347 at Antioch, Asia Minor
