From the preface:
“The object of the author is, to re-kindle in the hearts of the faithful, that love towards this saint, which, in former times, inflamed the hearts of so many thousands throughout the whole world.” Containing morning and evening devotions, prayers at Mass, and much, much more, St. Benedict’s Manual is sure to provide direction on how one should pray. From the instruction on prayer, the manual states, “No saint has ever yet entered heaven, without having used prayer, as the weapon by which he conquered and put to fight the enemies of his soul.” As such, this book’s aim is to assist you in raising your heart to God through guided prayers and passages from which to read.
