Liturgy of the Hours

The early Christians continued the Jewish practice of reciting prayers at certain hours of the day and night, culminating in the Liturgy of the Hours (also called the Divine Office or Breviary) that we have today, the single richest prayer resource of the Church. With prayers, psalms, and readings for each of the Hours, changing daily and seasonally, it's a beautiful way for lay people to join the liturgical prayer of the Catholic Church.
