In Oremus—Latin for “let us pray”, prayers from the Mass and other beloved Catholic prayers, in both English and Latin, are accompanied by master copies of some of the Church's most beautiful artwork.
Young Catholics will learn to pray in the language which Pope Saint John Paul II said elicits “a profound sense of the Eucharistic Mystery” while exploring, reflecting on, and being inspired by studies of masterpieces of Christian art, from Fra Angelico to Bouguereau. This stunning compendium is an invaluable resource for young Catholics to use both at Mass and at home.

Oremus is a beautiful book geared toward children to help them learn the Latin prayers most commonly seen and used at home and at Mass. the illustrations are stunning. The Latin prayers are accompanied by the English prayers as can be seen in a few of the photos in the post. As an adult who wants to learn more of the prayers in Latin, I found this book to be outstanding and have no doubt children will learn so much from this book. The illustrations invite contemplation I voluntarily received a copy from TAN Books. All views are my honest opinion.
Beautiful book but too expensive for what it is.
Contains all the prayers one would need to follow along during the TLM as well as some Marian ones, with Latin on one side and the English translation on the other. The accompanying pictures are a beautiful representation of real religious paintings.
My 3 grandkids are studying Latin. They and their mother loved the book and pictures!
But this is perfect. The cover, the size, the colors and pictures are all lovely. I bought it mainly to bring back all the Latin that was hidden inside me for so long. And it worked. Like getting on a bike after years of not having having one. I can see how perfect it would be in the hands of a young one¶not having a missal of their own. And a great thought to put the Latin and English side by side for some of the prayers.
Beautiful book. Excellent compilation of prayers in Latin and English. Beautiful illustrations.
Was hoping there would be more prayers. Its pretty basic, but the pictures are nice and pleasant
I love the side-by-side Latin and English translations of popular prayers and important parts of the Mass. The illustrations are beautiful also! My kids enjoy bringing this book to Mass and using it during prayer time. This book is smaller than I expected, dimensions-wise. I was expecting a larger picture book but its about the size of one of those kids Golden Books.. maybe just a tad larger? Either way, still a great resource to have and I do like that it fits in my diaper bag easily!
