The Notre Dame Book of Prayer is the collection of prayers and reflections for alumni, parents, and friends of the university. First published in 2010 and now updated with dozens of new prayers, this book shares the vibrant Catholic spiritual life of the University of Notre Dame.
This bestselling book is arranged around twelve stunning, full-color photos of sacred and beloved sites on campus—including the Grotto, the Basilica of the Sacred Heart, St. Joseph and St. Mary’s lakes, Touchdown Jesus, and Notre Dame Stadium. These beautiful photos were taken by Matt Cashore, the university’s award-winning senior photographer.
This book contains hundreds of traditional and contemporary prayers written by faculty, staff, alumni, and members of the founding Congregation of Holy Cross. There are prayers for every occasion and season of life, including:
- morning and evening;
- meal times;
- an engagement;
- the birth of a child;
- anxiety and depression;
- graduations; and
- liturgical seasons.
You’ll also find guidance on how to pray and inspiring testimonies on the power of prayer. Contributors include President Emeritus Fr. Edward “Monk” Malloy, CSC; former head football coach Lou Holtz; writer Brian Doyle; Fr. Ted Hesburgh, CSC; and Lisa M. Hendey, founder of CatholicMom.com.
