Saint Augustine's Prayer Book (Revised in 1967)
Saint Augustine's Prayer Book was originally published in 1947. Revised in 1967 by Fr. Loren Gavitt, this devotional includes brief forms of the Daily Office, preparations for the Eucharist and for Penance. It includes Visits to the Blessed Sacrament, Benediction, Stations of the Cross and prayers for many occasions, including special sections for for the dying and the dead. Notable are Devotions to the Holy Trinity, the Holy Ghost, the Sacred Heart, the Blessed Virgin Mary, St. Joseph and the Holy Angels; Litanies of the Holy Name of Jesus, the Precious Blood, the Church, the Saints, for Mission and for Social Justice; and Novenas for Christmas, the Holy Ghost and the Blessed Virgin Mary. Special services include a Visit to the Christmas Crib, a Devotion to the Passion, and a form for the Holy Hour.
The devotional manual is dedicated to St. Augustine of Hippo, who is the patron saint of the Order of the Holy Cross. St. Augustine’s Prayer Book unites your devotion to the Anglican tradition in a way few other books can. It makes a perfect companion to the prayers and devotions of the Book of Common Prayer.
