Traditional Catholic Prayer Resource

  • Good afternoon: 

    I have been trying to heed His Excellency Bishop Williamson's advice to pray three Rosaries a day. Sometimes I struggle. Sometimes my mind wanders off. Sometimes I neglect intentions. 

    Every time I fall short I try to renew the commitment and dedication to this devotion. 

    I want my prayers to be more grateful, adorational, meditative, and intentional. 

    I have accumulated so many prayer intentions and petitions for others, for friends, family, for souls in purgatory, and for myself, but I am completely aimless in how I direct my mind during prayer. 

    Sadly, I was so poorly formed in the Novus Ordo that I only recently memorized the Rosary. I am still not sure that I am reciting the mysteries the correct way or meditating on them the way that I should. For instance, I have not memorized the fruits of the Mysteries of the Rosary yet. 

    However, if I do any research I am bound to find all kinds of post-Vatican II nonsense. So (1 Thess 5:21) I am turning to CathInfo. Hopefully, someone here can direct me to some sound Church teaching on prayer. 

    My grandfather used to say a prayer for the dead after grace each time we sat down to eat. Now I can't find that prayer. That is one tradition that I wish I would have paid more attention to before he passed away. God willing I will be able to bring my family back to the true Catholic faith. 

    Pray for me and my family. (My wife has not yet come around to tradition and so we need your prayers). Know that I will be praying for all of you. 

    God bless, 
    Mike Collier

  • If you want to teach yourself to pray traditionally,devoutly, efficatiously etc  I highly recommend you purchase a copy of
    My Prayer Book 1904 by Father F.X. Lasance . It was reprinted right up the the 1950's but the ones before 1945 were never "updated".
    It covers everything you will need to form your prayer life, including Sanctifying the Day and Month

    They can be purchased on Ebay from $10.00 to $40.00.  Enter Father Lasance then click "Follow this search" and ebay will email you every time one gets listed.  There are several available right now.

    Any of Father Laasance's prayer books are worth their weight in gold.

    Excellent recommendation.

    Add: various digital formats available for FREE download @ archive.org

    Example:
    =]"My Prayer Book"

    Sry, it won't link right to the book, but you can search it from there.

  • Thank you all. I will look for a copy of Fr. Lasance's book. Generally speaking, it seems just like with good tools (not including power tools per se) if you want to get quality you need to go back to before the 1940's. "They don't make things like they used to". 

    Thank you for taking the time for pointing me in the right direction. 

    God Bless!

    The closer to the present, the more likely it isn't Catholic. 
    The further back you go, to more likely it doesn't apply because it was the question wasn't decided till after that which one is reading.

    Example: certain priests like following  John of S. Thomas in opinions that were later discarded, or as another example, the Angelic doctors views on when the soul is infused.

    Things that were speculative in the past, tend not to stay that way. Makes sense if you think about it. That's another distinction between theologians and the teaching Church, that between thought and conclusion.

    .
    Presumably it was simply "May the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace." 

    It's common to say that prayer after meals.  I know we do, and we know others who do.  It is a shortened version of this:

    "Eternal rest, grant unto them O Lord, and Let perpetual Light Shine upon them.  May they rest in peace.  May their souls, and all the souls of the faithful departed, through the Mercy of God, rest in peace" (To be prayed when passing a cemetery, or to be prayed for a particular person after they die [replace "they" with the name of the person who died').

    A great place for finding traditional Catholic prayers without having to sift through Novus Ordo junk is http://catholicharboroffaithandmorals.com/

    The site itself isn't really well organized.  But if you're looking for a prayer, you can either look on the site itself, or just google what you're looking for and add "catholic harbor of faith and morals" to the search.
