This chapter discusses and attempts to identify the most popular prayer books. Next, it analyzes those individual prayers that appear to be most distinctive of the piety of the community. The latter part of the chapter then examines the changes in both prayer books and in favourite prayers, in order to try to understand the devotional imperatives of the mass of English Catholics when they pray.
