All of the most important prayers are here compiled in one beautiful, convenient, deluxe volume. Following the directives of the Council of Baltimore, the Manual of Prayers for the Laity is the prayer book you can carry with you for the rest of your life, knowing that it includes the most essential prayers and devotions for a Catholic, as arranged by the same formidable bastion of tradition that produced the Baltimore Catechism and The Little Office of Baltimore to promote, facilitate, and enhance the spiritual lives of the laity by the traditional teachings and prayers of the Church.

From a thorough examination of conscience to prayers for before and after Mass, from preparation for Baptism to prayers for the dying, the Manual of Prayers for the Laity is intended to give a solid spiritual support to accompany anyone for his entire life. This work was constructed for the Mystical Body of Christ so that one might be able to open just one book every day for the rest of one's life and continue to grow in grace, wisdom, and holiness before God and men with an organized body of prayers.
