Eucharistic Adoration Prayer Book - Marie Paul Curley FSP 2nd Edition

It should be noted this is one of three similar books by the same author all from Pauline Books and Media. This edition with the black cover released in 2024, and the cover states it was written and complied by Marie Paul Curley, FSP. There is a 2019 edition with a red cover and not attribution of who authored it. I cannot help but wonder of part of the colour change was to not confuse it with TAN Books Manual for Eucharistic Adoration by The Poor Clares of Perpetual Adoration. I also mentioned a third there is also Essential Eucharistic Adoration Prayers with a similar black cover that released in 2024 which is sub set of what is contained in this volume. The description of the hard cover version states:

“Whether you are new to the practice of Eucharistic Adoration or searching for ways to go deeper, The Eucharistic Adoration Prayer Book is an invaluable guide to meeting Jesus in the Eucharist and growing in wholeness and holiness through Eucharistic prayer. This book features a rich collection of scriptural, traditional, and contemporary prayers and devotions as well as an explanation of the Mass and Eucharistic prayer, prayers for Benediction, guided holy hours, and practical tips for living a Eucharistic day.”

And the description of the eBook versions state:

““Jesus’ gift of his very self in the Eucharist is an ongoing, amazing manifestation of God’s eagerness to be not just close, but united with you. . . . The Eucharistic Adoration Prayer Book is both an introduction to adoration for those just starting this beautiful practice, and a resource and invaluable guide for those seeking to renew or deepen their adoration in a way that fosters spiritual growth, wholeness, and holiness.” (From the Preface)
In this book, you will find:
     Prayers for receiving Communion
     Prayers for Benediction
     Ten guided holy hours
     A treasury of biblical, traditional, and contemporary prayers to 
          foster Eucharistic devotion
     A collection of classic Eucharistic hymns
Also included are an explanation of the Mass and Eucharistic prayer, practical tips for living a Eucharistic day, and a rich variety of devotions.”

List of Contributors

The first edition of this book only had 7 dedicated Hours of Adoration reflections, and this volume offers 10. It also offers a plethora of other prayers, hymns and songs. 

It is a wonderful volume. The leather edition is stunning. But I love the eBook edition so I can have it on me at all times. It is a great addition to my collection of prayer books. It would be a great addition to any home, school, or church library. It is a resource I can easily recommend for your prayer life. Weather you get to adoration often or infrequently this book will be a great resource for those times and as a general prayer book for the rest of the times. I can easily recommend it.
