Habits of Devotion: Catholic Religious Practice in Twentieth-Century America

By: James M. O'Toole, editor;

2004 / Cornell University Press / 9780801472558


In Habits of Devotion, four senior scholars take the measure of the central religious practices and devotions that by the middle of the twentieth century defined the "ordinary, week-to-week religion" of the majority of American Catholics. Their essays investigate prayer, devotion to Mary, confession, and the Eucharist as practiced by Catholics in the United States before and shortly after the Second Vatican Council.
