Christ is Risen!

I was wondering if any here can tell me about the Eparchy of Parma prayer book for the faithful called Let Us Lift Up Our Hearts.

I would like an Eastern Catholic prayer book that has morning and evening prayers and canons.

Thank you for your help.

In Christ,

Brad

Brad,

I don't want to be awkward - but your profile says you are an Orthodox Catechumen - surely this is a question for your priest ?

Does he know you are wanting a specifically Eastern Catholic prayer book ?

Honestly,

I am interested in the Unia. I have read the Council of Florence and Union of Brest. Just wondering what it contains.

The classical Orthodox and Greek Catholic lay prayer books are more alike than different. They all contain more or less the same morning and evening prayers, devotional prayers for different needs, canons, and akathists.

Two good ones to compare would be the famous Jordanville Prayer Book and the Prayerbook published by the Melkite eparchy. The former has excerpts from Vespers, Matins, and Divine Liturgy. The latter lacks these, but gives the Canon of St. Andrew of Crete and Troparia for every day in the year.

One is Tudor English, the other contemporary.

In other words, they are pretty much the same.
