A Layman's Guide to Liturgy Of The Hours: How the Prayers Of The Church Can Change Your Life
St. Paul exhorts us to “pray without ceasing” — a beautiful goal that sounds daunting, even impossible. But wait! These pages break open an authoritative, time-tested method that countless laymen still use today to pray with constancy and thereby soar to the heights of holiness.
It’s called the Liturgy of the Hours.
Also known as the Divine Office or the breviary, the Liturgy of the Hours is an important vehicle for advancing in the spiritual life — a step that any serious Catholic, with the help of Fr. Timothy Gallagher, can take today.
Relying on insights from popes and saints, as well as on his five decades’ experience praying the Liturgy of the Hours, Fr. Gallagher opens your eyes to this spiritual treasury and shows you how, by means of its sanctifying rhythm, it will help you progress on your spiritual journey. Soon, you will be among the multitude of Catholics who pray the Hours daily and are richly blessed by the flow of graces these prayers yield.
From the wise Fr. Gallagher, you’ll learn:
• The basic elements of the Liturgy of the Hours
• How to incorporate them into your day, no matter how busy it may be
• How the Hours will revitalize your daily prayers and prevent them from becoming routine
• How they will extend the graces you obtain at Mass into your entire day
• How praying the Hours with your family will link you more intimately to each other—and to the universal Church
This regular-size edition of the official one-volume version of the internationally acclaimed LITURGY OF THE HOURS contains the complete texts of Morning and Evening Prayer for the entire year. With its readable 10-pt. type, ribbon markers for easy location of texts, and beautiful two-color printing, this handsome and handy volume simplifies praying the official Prayer of the Church for today's busy Catholic.
