Council for Marriage & The Family of The Irish Episcopal Conference
It is often pointed out that in the traditional rural life of Ireland that died in the 1960s, the day opens with a prayer to start the fire, closed with the rosary or other prayers, and was sustained through the day by more prayers.
It was an ideal not always achieved in city life. There prayer had to take other forms. In this sturdy little book, ideal for presentation to a married couple or at confirmation, are collected not only familiar traditional prayers, but prayers suitable for other stages of life, and its fortunes and misfortunes.
