The Ave Treasury of Catholic Prayers is an indispensable keepsake of classic and contemporary prayers that every Catholic should know.
This timeless resource includes a variety of devotions, psalms, and litanies that showcase the diversity of voices and traditions that have been part of the Catholic Church for more than two thousand years.
The hardcover, full-color volume contains all of your favorite prayers and some that will become familiar over time, including:
- essential prayers, such as the Our Father, Hail Mary, creeds, and Confiteor;
- prayers for talking with God throughout the day;
- prayers for the Sacraments of Reconciliation and Holy Communion;
- devotions and consecrations to Jesus, Mary, and Joseph; and
- prayers from saints for each of the five main forms of prayer listed in the Catechism of the Catholic Church—prayers of blessing, petition, intercession, thanksgiving, and praise.
Elegant, vintage lithographs and engravings taken from traditional prayer books, psalters, and Bibles and presented in a contemporary design add to the beauty of the book.
An index makes it easy to find prayers based on the saint or topic of devotion.
“We know we need to draw near to God through prayer, but we don’t always have the words to do so. This companion book is perfect to keep with you at all times so that a prayer is never far from your lips.”
Erica Tighe Campbell
Founder of Be A Heart
“An especially valuable trove of spiritual treasures drawn from both scripture and tradition. Believers will find a faithful, reliable, and time-tested pathway to deeper communion with God.”
Fr. John Burns
Author of Lift Up Your Heart
“This is a comprehensive collection of prayers that includes traditional and diverse voices. It is an excellent resource for the youth and young adults I minister to and anyone wishing to enhance their prayer lives. I especially love that I could find prayers from Sr. Thea Bowman here!”
Catholic speaker and youth and young adult minister
“Just as St. Paul called the early disciples to ‘rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer’ (Rm 12:12), we are called now to steep ourselves in hope, patience, and prayer as we walk with the Lord. This wonderful collection of prayers—many familiar to us, others new—will draw us ever closer to the God who made and saved us. Let’s join in prayer as together we build the kingdom among us.”
Fr. William Lies, CSC
Congregation of Holy Cross, United States Province of Priests and Brothers
“Human life has different seasons and each season calls for a specific prayer. This book is a treasure trove that contains valuable prayers for each season of life. Every family needs a copy of this book that is rooted in our rich Catholic spiritual tradition.”

Thank you Ave Maria Press and Netgally for this copy of digital prayer book.
When I saw the approval mail for it, my heart was full and I skimmed through the book and realised that this has some of the most beautiful prayers and I'm so happy that I have an easy access to them.
Thank you dear Fathers for this beautiful gift to all Catholics!
Sometimes, when I am waiting in a church, one of my favorite things to do is to pull out a prayer book and drink in the words contained within it. I find this can be a great source of comfort, particularly during times of distress.
Perhaps you, too, are looking for a trusty prayer companion to accompany you on the spiritual journey. I would like to recommend that you start with The Ave Treasury of Catholic Prayers by Ave Maria Press.
This handy guide contains both familiar prayers and those that might be new--even to long-time Catholics. It is so comprehensive that if you turn to it during a season of specific need, chances are you will find the words of supplication you need.
Whether you are in a mood for the Litany of Saints or an Act of Spiritual Communion, The Ave Treasury of Catholic Prayers fits the bill. Read it and be reminded of the love of God in a whole new, compelling way!
I received a free copy of, The Ave Treasury of Catholic Prayers, by Ave Maria Press, from the publisher and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. As a life long Catholic, I can honestly say I have never heard of some these prayers before, but I will be saying them now. I loved this book of prayers.
