Novenas are under­going a surge of renewed popularity as Catholics reclaim their devotional heritage. Compiled and edited by best-selling prayer-book author William G. Storey,Novenas is the first novena prayer book of its kind. In it, Storey has collected and edited 40 novenas, as well as shorter prayers, in updated form and in modern English. They include novenas of intercession for special needs, novenas to saints, and novenas to Mary, to God the Father, to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. Of particular note are newly deigned novenas to modern holy people—Pope John XXIII, Mother Teresa, Archbishop Oscar Romero, and others.
