 Our Description

 

Days before his death at 43, the famed British convert completed work on his last book. It is not a novel, but a prayer book for those suffering anxiety due to the death or wounding of a loved one in war. McCaffrey Publishing has brought it back into print for the new century, which promises, alas, to be at least as tragic as the 20th.

"Appropriate Psalms, collects and Scripture readings for each day of the week [and] many well-worded prayers of Msgr. Benson's own making."
-America Magazine

"The prayers are arranged for each day of the week...and all Catholics can adapt [them] to their own use, providing help to others and peace to their own souls."
-Catholic World

Benson describes his book of prayer in a Preface -- in fact, the last words he ever wrote -- and makes suggestions for its best use.
