Directory of Devotional Prayer
by the Congregation of the Holy Cross
For the first time in over sixty years, the Congregation of Holy Cross has produced a new prayer book designed to serve the spiritual needs of both the priests and brothers of the Congregation and the thousands of Catholics who are the recipients of the education and ministry of Holy Cross parishes and schools.
The Congregation of Holy Cross presents its new Directory of Devotional Prayer, a handsomely produced pocket-size treasury of everyday prayers, popular devotions, and reflections. Printed in two colors and durably bound, this elegantly designed prayer book showcases the spiritual heritage of Holy Cross: Eucharistic devotion, daily meditation, the examination of conscience, the Way of the Cross, the rosary, litanies, and devotion to the principal, patrons of the Congregation – Saint Joseph, Our Lady of Sorrows, and the Sacred Heart of Jesus. The Directory also celebrates the fundamental and distinctive elements of the Holy Cross charism: conformity to Christ, trust in Divine Providence, and hope in the Cross.
“I am pleased that this important book will be available to members of the general public. I hope that they, along with our Holy Cross religious, will discover prayers that may assist them in the development of their own spiritual lives.” – Richard W. Warner, C.S.C., Superior General, Congregation of Holy Cross
