Description

The priests and seminarians of Our Lady of Guadalupe Seminary realized early on that a book of daily prayers was needed for their use and edification. Thus was born the Vade Mecum, a Latin phrase which means “go with me.”

The term traditionally refers to a handbook or quick reference with instructions or information necessary for an individual.

In the context of seminary life, the Vade Mecum became a short prayerbook that would be small, portable and yet contain the basic and necessary prayers seminarians would offer each day.

This edition is based on that of the seminary, but with the laity in mind, providing a small treasury of daily prayers to aid your spiritual life.

We hope this Vade Mecum is spiritually profitable for you. Please pray for the  priests and seminarians of the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter.
