Anyone seeking a more complete prayer life eventually comes up against the Divine Office, a formidable obstacle for the uninitiated. Here is a clear, simple, and complete introduction that will guide anyone wishing to take up morning, evening, and night prayer from the Divine Office.

The basic principle of the Office is explained, and the method of putting the principle into practice is detailed. With the Office providing both the words and the discipline, a consistent prayer life based on the Divine Office can be built. Pocket-sized.


A marvelous text for college students and anyone desiring to learn more so they may better tap the riches of the Psalms and the Divine Office-superbly ordered!
