The Divine Office, commonly known as the Liturgy of the Hours, marks the hours of each day, sanctifying them with prayers. The Liturgy of the Hours is available to you in its entirety in this lovely, four-volume, leather-bound set.
"The hymns and litanies of the Liturgy of the Hours integrate the prayer of the psalms into the age of the Church, expressing the symbolism of the time of day, the liturgical season, or the feast being celebrated. Moreover, the reading from the Word of God at each Hour (with the subsequent responses or troparia) and readings from the Fathers and spiritual masters at certain Hours, reveal more deeply the meaning of the mystery being celebrated, assist in understanding the psalms, and prepare for silent prayer." (CCC 1177)
This four-volume set contains everything you need for the liturgical year. Each volume addresses a portion of the year: Advent and Christmas, Lent and Easter, Ordinary Time Weeks 1-17, and Ordinary Time Weeks 18-34. The Saint Joseph Guide for the Liturgy of the Hours directs you to the correct prayers and pages. (You will receive the guide for the current year.) Insert cards provide information and prayers and a supplement notes new feasts and memorials.
The hardback books are printed in two colors and bound in black leather. Gold-stamped spines match the gilt-edged pages and ribbon markers help to keep you organized.
