I bought this book around 7 months ago...well two actually, one for me and one for my visiting Mother-In-Law (who is wonderful by the way), she wanted to move from the Shorter version to this one. At first glance and to eyes which have never read or used such a book before (have only been a Catholic for one year), it does seem a little daunting. "How on earth am I going to be able to foloww/use this correctly?", I thought to myself.
Well, with practise, together with some much needed guidance and encouragement (I make the most of living in a town where we have a Convent for retired Sisters, it's there that Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament is held twice a week), I was very soon on my way to using this wonderful book properly. I have not looked back since.
For me, Morning & Evening Prayers have been and continue to be enlightening and spiritually uplifting. I encourage you to buy this book and use it. If you need help getting started, please don't hesitate to ask a priest or nun - they would be delighted to help as prayers like these are being said less and less by us lay-people. There's also help on the internet to get you started by highlighting the Cycle of Prayer and the Seasons from where you can pick up in the book and use the marker ribbons so you don't lose your place.
To sum up, well, I've since bought another one (for my Wife) and will soon be helping to purchase another from Amazon for an old lady in our Parish. You will get used to shifting from one side of the book to another when used during particular seasons. Seasonal Hymns are contained also as well as prayers for use on Saint Days, plus much more besides.
I hope this was helpful.
God bless you.
