 Our Description


Praying to God is essential to Catholics. Treasures Old and New offers a way to deepen your relationship with God. With user-friendly devotions and novenas, the book gives readers a way to participate more fully in prayer.

Treasures Old and New offers a modern approach to traditional prayers. It increases the understanding that praying is a way to thank God for your life and all His many blessings. These litanies, prayers, and novenas give readers the words to use to converse with God both internally and externally. Praying is participating and offering gratitude to God, and we are reminded that our Lord will not force a blessing upon us--receive and give thanks.

Gratitude prepares the soul for humility, and humility makes prayer come more easily. The more we rest and work and play in prayer, the more we come to live the Word of God in thanksgiving.


Rev. Philip Neri Powell O.P., holds a BA in philosophy/history, an MA in English, the M Div, a PhD in English (emphasis in poetry). After studying at Aquinas Institute in St. Louis, Missouri and Oxford University, Fr. Powell entered studies at the Angelicum. Fr. Powell taught spirituality, liturgy, classical western literature, Catholic theology, and philosophical theology at the University of Dallas for three years before moving to Rome. He will soon complete his PhL thesis and PhD dissertation.

While many of us never experienced the rosary, novenas or Eucharistic adoration as children, we are finding them invaluable practices as we grow into faith-filled adults. That today's young faithful are rediscovering and embracing these traditions -- in the context of their modern lives -- completes, in many ways, the promises of ressourcement and aggiornamento that were the hallmarks of the council.

Fr. Phillip Neri Powell's new book, Treasures Old and New: Traditional Prayers for Today's Catholics, sits comfortably within this movement. Consisting of novenas, litanies, a new rosary, a selection of penitential prayers, and short morning and evening prayers, Fr. Powell has produced a prayer boo Full Review...
