My Treasury of Chaplets by Patricia S. Quintiliani

Patricia S. Quintiliani, 0911218319, $10.95

Naturally when one asks what books a Catholic should keep at home, the Bible and the Catechism come immediately to mind. My Treasury of Chaplets should definitely be listed in the top ten.

Here is this small, thick book will you find compiled just about every Catholic bead prayer recorded; lukewarm Catholics and those interested in the Faith may be surprised to discover that our wealthy tradition of prayer transcends beyond the Rosary; Quintiliani has collected here rosaries and chaplets representing many Catholic devotions, from the Divine Mercy to the Little Flower rosary to devotions for the Holy Wounds, Holy Face, and Precious Blood of Jesus.

Of course, there is a section devoted to the Holy Rosary, and in addition to information on the traditional Dominican five-decade devotion one will also find prayers for the Pro-Life Rosary, the World Mission rosary, and other devotions which may be prayed using traditional rosary beads.

If you want to enrich your life with prayer, let My Treasury of Chaplet be your guide.
