I am Protestant (rather than Catholic) however, I found so many of these prayers powerful and transformative for my own life. Many of the prayers were very beautiful and I shared quite a few of them on my Facebook page to encourage others. I found it very interesting as well to go through the different eras (from the early matyrs right up to the 20th century) and it showed me more about early church history.
