Book of Prayers in Common 2013

Book of Prayers in Common

I am absolutely delighted to launch the first edition of my Book of Prayers in Common. If you are a regular at this Liturgy website you will have seen this being developed step by step. If you are one of the people who has helped with that preparation of this book – thank you.

You can download the Book of Prayers in Common by clicking the link:

You can also download it as an .epub file (This is for iPad and other mobile devices. I am not as happy yet with this – if you have the option, I would use the PDF above. It should work fine on most mobile devices.)

The text of the book is also online on this site as a webpage. [Update: a Kindle version is now available also, on that page].

This book is an ongoing project, and you will find further additions and editions on this site as they are prepared. It would be great to have it at least translated into Te Reo Māori. If you are interested in assisting with that, please let me know.

You can search a Biblical text and its commentary to locate specific references to Sacred Scripture made by Doctors of the Church and churchContinue Reading
