I have recently received some books from TAN.
First, let me mention a couple of “manuals”.
They are available on Kindle and bound in leather. They are similarly bound. They are a the size of a small paperback, flexible. They can easily fit in a purse or coat pocket. The binding feels strong and tight.
There is a single ribbon in each one. The Marian volume is dark blue with silver edged pages and the Eucharistic volume is dark red with gold. They are comfortable to the hand.
They each have an imprimatur. There is a dedication page, which means that it would make a splendid and lasting gift.
The volumes were prepared by different religious families.
Each has an introductory section.
When you get these books, I hope you will use this part often.
These are lovely little books which would make great gifts.
Those of you who are now engaged in Eucharistic adoration, or who would like to begin a pious daily devotion – and we really need more people doing that – will find these useful starting points for prayer warfare and petition.
I could envisage a group forming at a parish, all having these manuals, and then praying before or after Masses or at other times of the day. Coordinated prayer and maybe even discussion of the many quotes from the writings of saints, prayers and documents within over coffee somewhere afterwards. We need to form these small devout “base communities” to sustain especially the clergy who will strive to be faithful in the coming storm.
