Close to the Land, Close to God

A pioneer bishop of the American West once noted: There is something almost sacramental about the life of the rural family. Back when many of our grandparents and great-grandparents still worked on farms and ranches, an association now called Catholic Rural Life published The Rural Life Prayerbook (1956) to provide them spiritual support.

This new edition offers the original illustrations of this charming collection of traditional prayers and blessings especially for those who live close to the land, not just rural farmers and ranchers, but also those in the cities and suburbs who labor lovingly in gardens and greenhouses, or in caring for animals. Add to the cart or wish list above.

Prayers for protection from fires, floods, and destructive pests
Blessings for gardens, fields, pastures, wood lots, orchards, and vineyards

And much, much more!
