The prayers for the church seasons include brief reflections on the seasons, and in the section on the teachings of Jesus, the passage from Scripture (or a paraphrase) is provided. The final section of the book is a collection of favorite prayers, both traditional (such as the Way of the Cross) and contemporary (such as Mother Teresa's prayer).
