Are there any prayer books published by non-Byzantine Eastern Catholic Churches, such as the Agpeya?

God bless,

Joe

Greetings, Joe!

The Agpeya certainly is available, on Amazon, of course, but also elsewhere. Then there's the Melkite "Publicans Prayer Book" which you can get here: https://melkite.org/products-page/prayer-books/publicans-prayer-book. If I had a spare $50 I'd snap up a copy pdq.

I'm pretty sure the Ukrainian Catholics have a prayer book but I'm not familiar with it.

There's a YouTube channel called "Orthodox Review" wherein he reviews many Orthodox *and* non-Orthodox prayer books and other spiritual reading material. He's done reviews of both the Agpeya and the "Publicans Prayer Book". Well worth taking a look at, imo. Here's the link: https://www.youtube.com/@OrthodoxReview

Personally, I've been using the Orthodox Christian Prayer Book published by Newrome Press since December and really like it. And I'm a Byzantine Catholic.

Happy hunting!

In Christ,
Jeff

Hi Joe,

It depends on the particular church sui iuris you're looking for. You can get a copy of the three-volume Maronite "Prayer of the Faithful" from the Liturgy page of St. Maron Publications: http://saintmaronpublications.org/product-category/liturgy/. For us, the Liturgy of the Hours is our official prayer book. Any other little Maronite prayer books you'll find have select prayers from the Liturgy of the Hours, as well as a few Roman prayers sprinkled in.

The Book of Lamentations by St Gregory of Narek is considered to be the prayer book for the Armenians.
