This Canon is a very needed one and the only reason I chose this prayer book after loyally attending to the Jordanville prayer book. This new 2015 edition (I had used the older edition and it is less heavy) though is a bit heavier in my hands. So I prefer the size of the Jordanville prayer book. Alas. Maybe all this is not what is important--all these are very small considerations--and what matters is to pray. God help us do that!
