Product Description

For those who want to grow spiritually, Benedictine Daily Prayer provides an everyday edition of the Divine Office. People who desire to pray with the church can do so in a simple manner by following this Benedictine daily prayer model. Based on solid and traditional prayer patterns of more than fifteen hundred years of liturgical prayer within the Benedictine monastic tradition, Benedictine Daily Prayer helps readers celebrate and appreciate God's presence that is found everywhere, especially within the Divine Office. It offers a richer diet of classic office hymnody, psalmody, and Scripture than shorter resources are able to provide.

Benedictine Daily Prayer is designed for Benedictine Oblates, Benedictine monastics, and men and women everywhere. It's small enough to fit in a briefcase for travel. Scripture readings are from the NRSV.

I'm an oblate. Its my constant companion


By:
Review: As an oblate of St. Meinrad Archabbey, I take very seriously my promise to do the daily hours. This breviary is my constant companion; an indespensible part of my spiritual life. Best Uses: My daily hours; Describe Yourself: Bookworm

Very comprehensive publication


By:
Review: I use this product for daily prayer, and find fairly easy to navigate. It took about one week to get to know it well as to how this brieviary is arranged and to feel at ease using it. Very comprehesive, all around well arranged. Best Uses: Reference; Describe Yourself: Casual Reader; Pros: Easy To Read

Wonderful Book of Hours


By:
Review: I am so glad this has been published. As a female Benedictine Oblate I appreciate the usage of the NRSV inclusive text. The regular Liturgy of the Hours is a bit old fashioned and dry. The daily readings are excellent and the daily prayers have variations based on a 4 week cycle. This is truly a Benedictine prayer book worth using daily for years to come. It is also a nice size and it feels good in your hand. Best Uses: Gift, Older Readers; Describe Yourself: Bookworm; Pros: Deserves Multiple Readings, Well Written

Great For Travellers


By:
Review: This is a great addition to any collection of daily prayers. I use the 4 volume Order of Office, daily, but find the "Benedictine Daily Prayer Book" to be a great travelling companion. Because of its compactness, it takes a bit of effort to familiarize oneself with its "layout". The time is well worth it! The times for the hours are from the Benedictine Rule, and took me a few readings to remember them. It is a beautiful book, feels nice in the hands, and is compact. All in all, a great resource. Best Uses: DAILY READING; Cons: Uses Older "Terms"; Describe Yourself: Bookworm; Pros: A Great Companion

It couldn't be any better. I LOVE it.


By:
Review: For prayer and contemplation. Best Uses: Special Needs; Describe Yourself: Casual Reader; Pros: Deserves Multiple Readings, Easy To Read, Informative, Page-Turner, Well Written
