Too modern Review by Annie
I received a free review copy of this book in the mail. I was looking for a new prayer book for my first communicant, but unfortunately, this is not it. It is very important to our family to give our children a beautiful and timeless experience of the faith - one that lifts up their heart and soul. I felt this prayer book, while undoubtedly well-intended, was seeped too much in the spirit of the modern time and age. Our children respond well to that which has come before - the virgin martyrs, the priests and religious who gave all they had for our Lord. The new things, always changing, hold no appeal. Our society is in search of something real and unchanging. Our prayer books should meet that search. (Posted on 9/17/2015)
