This is a free sample of the Catholic All January Booklet featuring the prayers for Dec 31-January 5.

Your purchases in the Catholic All Year shop support the production of the Catholic All Year Liturgical Living Video Series, so thank you!
The description of the complete booklet follows. This sample includes only the Vigil of January 1st through the Feast of St. John Neumann.
In this booklet, you’ll find all the Bible passages, prayers, songs, and devotions that our family uses throughout the month of January to enhance our family prayer life and our liturgical living in the home.
I created this booklet to keep from having to wade through all the different versions of prayers available online, and because I really prefer paper over screens when I’m praying. For all the history, tradition, and backstories surrounding these prayers, blessings, and devotions and the feast days to which they are attached, please consult the Catholic All Year Compendium.
The booklet starts with the lovely indulged prayers for December 31st and New Year’s Day, which for Catholics, is also a beautiful solemnity, honoring Our Lady as the Mother of God.
The entire month of January is dedicated to the Most Holy Name of Jesus.

You get a 44 page pdf file, that can be printed as individual pages, but I recommend opening the pdf in Adobe (there is a free version available for download here) and printing it as a booklet. For best results print on high quality paper (like 24 weight). Lighter weight paper will work, but there will be more show through from the back.
