Prayers for Boys and Young Men

  • Some recent discussion regarding the vexations and temptation that young men are facing in the present age have reminded me of a rare book, Lord God: A Book of Prayers for Boys and Young Men authored by Dom Hubert Van Zeller (London: Burns Oates & Washbourne, Ltd., 1936).

    This prayerbook is unlike any other I have encountered. The devotions for Confession alone I think would help some of the young men who have made queries of a moral nature.

    Attached are these devotions, written in with a simplicity and earnestness that is as edifying as it is charming. Even the us elders may benefit from such devout compositions.
    Please ignore all that I have written regarding sedevacantism.

  • "Boys will be boys." And the aforementioned prayerbook does indeed consider every aspect of a boy's life, in which sports and play are paramount.

    Attached are the pertinent devotions.

  • "Boys will be boys." And paternal chastisement is quite a part of a boy's life (or at least it should be).

    Attached are the pertinent prayers for such an occasion. Other prayers are also attached.
