Book Review

I cannot recommend this little book highly enough.

Filled with beautiful poetic psalms, in Latin and English, this book is perfect for beginners who wish to deepen their prayer life and punctuate their day with the praise of Almighty God and implore the powerful intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

I picked it up on night and have struggled to put it down. A real page turner!

It's pocket sized, available on Amazon, so it means that you can read it on the bus or on the Tube. Spiritually, its rewarding and I have come to the belief that those who read it are granted graces through the hands of Our Blessed Lady, especially the grace of interior peace amid trial and anxiety.

Oddly, I picked it up at night and said Compline. The next morning I woke up at 6am, which is very, very unusual for me, what with not being much of a morning person. It's easy to navigate and at the back of the book are hymns and psalm tones with notations. A must read. If you already pray the Divine Office or this Little Office then I take my hat off to you. As I said in a previous post, it had been looking at me and making me feel guilty for quite a while but once you start you get a little hooked. Essential reading. A Magnificat read. Antiphontastic!

This is the second time I've heard of the Office to Mary. I'm intrigued, and I like to hear that it got you up early. I am a regular of the Divine Office, but that would not slow me from trying the Marian version. I like your Catholic verve and the tone of these blogs. My informational bent is different, but you might appreciate much of the content on my blog: http://wrestlinggypsies.blogspot.comPeace to you, Bradford

I share your admiration, Laurence, of this fine publication of the Baronius Press.
