Can someone recommend a good book on praying?

It's not a terribly helpful reply when asking about personal prayer.

I'm relatively young, and have only been Catholic for a little while now. I thought that 1962, meant something special.

The 1962 edition of the Missale (book used for celebrating Mass) was the last edition of the Extraordinary Form/Tridentine Mass.

This marks a point of history that I don't know of, but from what I hear from some older Catholics, this point was pretty important and for some, sad.

It was. But going down that road in this thread risks a hijack, and I'd rather leave things open if others have recommendations for Will.

"Approach to Prayer" by Dom Hubert Van Zeller is another good book.

I would recommend Father Dubay, but the book Father Kenobi mentioned above is a really good approximation of what you'll get in Father Dubay and an easier read.

The fourth pillar of the Catechism is entirely on prayer, and it's quite beautiful and profound in my opinion.

There are many others. Practice of the Presence of God by Brother Lawrence. St. Francis de Sales has some good teaching on prayer in Introduction to the Devout Life. Works by St. Teresa of Avila and St. John of the Cross, as well as St. Francis de Sales, form the basis for much of what you will get in Father Philippe's book and in Father Dubay.

But I think "Time for God" and the Catechism are the best place to start.

Oh, yes, Fr Dubay.

"Prayer Primer" first, then "Deep Conversion, Deep Prayer"

"The Ways of Mental Prayer" by Fr. Lehodey. Absolutely orthodox.
