This book was a very interesting read especially in this day and age. For weather we like it or not the work is at war, a war with terrorists, a culture war, even currently a war about bathroom use. Originally composed in 1943 as The Armour of God this book is a collection of prayers, thoughts, reflections and quotes from the bible, saints and church history. In a time of ISIS and a time of gang attacks and terror attacks in Europe we need to be a people of prayer more than ever before. We can ...more

Wow!! This is quite a prayer book! Tiny at around 4.5x3 inches. Perfect to carry to Mass in my purse to pray before the service.

The first half of the book is commentary by the incredible Fulton Sheen. The rest of the book contains a wide variety of prayers and psalms for every occasion and hour of the day.

It was written in the 40s during WW2 for those in the military. But it is just as relevant today for any prayer warrior.

If you know me, you know I have collected Catholic prayer books for de

“The evil in the world must not make me doubt the existence of God. There could be no evil if there were no God. Before there can be a hole in a uniform, there must be a uniform; before there is death, there must be life; before there is error, there must be truth; before there is a crime, there must be liberty and law; before there is a war, there must be peace; before there is a devil, there must be a God, rebellion against whom made the devil.” 11 likes
“You cannot always depend on prayers to be answered the way you want them answered but you can always depend on God. God, the loving Father often denies us those things which in the end would prove harmful to us. Every boy wants a revolver at age four, and no father yet has ever granted that request. Why should we think God is less wise? Someday we will thank God not only for what He gave us, but also for that which He refused.” 8 likes
