Overview

Everything You Need to Know But No One Ever Taught You

What do you say when someone asks, "You're a Catholic. So tell me, what do Catholics do when they pray a novena?"... Or when they "offer it up."... Or "wear a medal."... Or "go to Confession."... Or any of the dozens of other devotions that set Catholics apart from other Christians.

If you've ever been tongue-tied trying to explain Catholic practices...or if you have a few questions of your own ... or maybe you are just learning about Catholicism, you've got to read The How-To Book of Catholic Devotions.

The How-To Book of Catholic Devotions is the only book that not only provides the who, what, where, when, and why of the most time-honored traditions of the Church but also the how.

In this collection of Catholic devotions, authors Mike Aquilina and Regis J. Flaherty outline everything you need to know but nobody ever taught you about the ways Catholics pray with sign and symbol.

From the Angelus to an Examination of Conscience to First Fridays, Vigil Candles, and more, you'll learn exactly what words to say, what gestures to make, what actions to take - in short, you'll find step-by-step guidelines to all the devotional rites and rituals of the Catholic Faith.

But that's not all. The How-To Book of Catholic Devotions also furnishes a history of each devotion and a reflection on its importance in the prayer life of Catholics as well as succinct and salient quotes from saints and prominent members of the Church.

And there's still more! With its down-to-earth, practical advice, The How-To Book of Catholic Devotions incorporates cautions, drawn fromScripture and Tradition for potential temptations and distractions as well as revealing the blessings and graces associated with the devotions. If you want to learn what devotions comprise a truly Catholic life, and share those practices with others, you can't be without The How-To Book of Catholic Devotions.

    This book is a must-read for serious Catholics

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book; it taught me things I didn't learn in 12 years of Catholic school! When are you going to write one about the Mass??

    Very informative

    I'm a craddle Catholic but never really understood my faith. This book was a great place to start to get a good grasp of what we as Catholics believe and why.

    A Companion Reference to the How-to Book of the Mass

    Like Michael Dubruiel's How-to Book of the Mass, Mike Aquilina's The How-to Book of Catholic Devotions is well-organized, well-written, and informative. It's especially useful to adults new to the Catholic Church, those who have been away for a long time, those whose catechism classes left much to be desired (or have simply forgotten what they learned), and those who are simply curious about the Church; in short, it is a useful resource for everyone.

    Guess What?

    The reviewer of the Devotions book asked when there would be one on the Mass and the Publisher seeing this has published the second in this series on the Mass. Check out The How-To Book of the Mass and look for more in this series.

    more from this reviewer

    This review is more for the format of the Nook book. I purchas

    This review is more for the format of the Nook book. I purchased the ebook and tried to view it on a Nook Simple, Nook Color Tablet and via the Nook Android app. The font, by default, is very tiny and there's no way you can change it. You can change the margins and the line spacing but the text size is stuck at teenie-weenie size. I let B&N know and they said they would alert their development team. Hopefully the bug gets fixed because I want to read the book, but as is I'd need a magnifying glass to read it!
