I seriously love this collection of novenas. This is a must-have for any Catholic, or for anyone who appreciates the Catholic tradition. All major, and a few less well-known saints and angels are covered. Brief biographies are presented, as well as the prayers and their recitation instructions. I highly recommend it.
