A special Simple Prayer Book for our troops

The Catholic Truth Society have produced a special version of their Simple Prayer Book for the armed forces.

In case you are not from Britain, the "Simple Prayer Book" is one of the classic publications of the CTS which has sold squillions of copies over the years. I often recommend it when someone comes to confession after being away from the Church for a long time as it contains basic Catholic prayers, prayers for Confession and Holy Communion, a summary of the faith and many other useful things. A standing instruction for the pamphlet rack in my Church is that there must always be copies of the Simple Prayer Book available.

The Knights of St Columba have funded the production of 30,000 copies of this specially adapted version for the forces. On 15 September, at the Roman Catholic Garrison Cathedral of St Michael and St George in Aldershot, Bishop Moth (Bishop of the Forces) will bless a copy and symbolically hand it to a serving member of the forces.
