THE LITTLE ORATORY
A Beginner's Guide to
Praying in the Home


To help you and your family live the liturgical life of the Church more fully in your own home, David Clayton and Leila Marie Lawler reclaim here an almost lost tradition that families used for centuries to build a beautiful bridge between home and church: the little oratory.

Consisting of a modest table and icons, the little oratory is a visible sign of spiritual awareness and devotion. It extends the Eucharistic worship of the Mass into the heart of your home, spiritually nourishing your family and preparing them to transform the world through prayer and charity.

By following the wise and practical advice in this book, you'll discover the peace and love that flows from a home that is focused on Christ. Includes numerous illustrations and seven full-colored icons to help you begin to build your own little oratory.

Paperback, 190 pages, 8" x 9"

By following the wise advice in this book, you'll discover the peace and love that flows from a home that is focused on Christ. You'll also learn:
  • How to use sacred art to strengthen your prayer life.

  • How to extend Catholic beliefs and devotions into every room of the house.

  • Why the Liturgy of the Hours is important and how it can make your family holy.

  • How to pray the Rosary with children and keep the rowdiest of them calm and reverent.
