In this issue of Intercom, the General Intercessions given in the Presiders’ Pages are all taken from this book. That’s a sufficient sample to enable the reader to make his or her own assessment, and in my case, the assessment is a positive one.
A collection of this sort puts prayers on the lips of the faithful, but that does not in any way make the prayers less ‘of the faithful.’ Prayer, including intercessory prayer, does not have to be original in content in order to be authentic and fresh, and this book is a real boon for priests, liturgical planners and readers.
For the most part, the typical liturgical order is followed: the needs of the Church; those in public office; those who are suffering in any way; specific needs and local concerns; the dead. This gives the book a solidity and dependability. This is not a ‘flaky’ volume, but one that can be used with confidence.
Prayer of the Faithful is very well produced. It is a solid, dignified, heavy hardback. It remains open on a flat surface. Not least, it has a built-in page ribbon. A real practitioner’s book!

The Prayer of the Faithful is a fundamental part of the liturgy and prompts reflection in parishioners in a unique and special way throughout the Church year. It offers the congregation an opportunity to respond to the Word of God by o?ering prayers for the salvation of all and to approach God as a community of the faithful.
In this invaluable collection, Fr Leslie McNamara has been guided by the General Instruction of the Roman Missal and offers readers a wide-ranging selection of intentions for use throughout the three-year cycle (A, B, C). The wording of the prayers has been specially tailored to suit the particular celebration or Sunday in question, with intentions that respond in a thoughtful and nuanced fashion to the liturgical season, the lectionary readings and the challenges facing both the Church and society today.
This important work is offered as a resource for priests, leaders of prayer and all who inspire and engage our congregations in worship on Sundays and holy days throughout the year.
