Liturgy of the Hours has moved to DivineOffice.org
An announcement to all those who are searching for our daily prayer and scripture readings known as Liturgy of the Hours. For those of you who have subscribed in the last month, you may not have experienced these remarkable podcasts. And for your benefit I will take this quote from wikipedia
The Liturgy of the Hours or Divine Office is the official set of daily prayers prescribed by the Catholic Church to be recited at the canonical hours by the clergy, religious orders, and laity. The Liturgy of the Hours consists primarily of psalms supplemented by hymns and readings. Together with the Mass, it constitutes the official public prayer life of the Church.
Again, let me repeat that “Together with the Mass, it constitutes the official public prayer life of the Church” and yet this form of Liturgy is largely unavailable or inconvenient and difficult to learn on your own. This is the basis for our Divine Office ministry. We will continue to grow Catholic Classes because it offers something incredibly important for seekers and cradle catholics seeking greater faith life, but just as you could have Mass in the school cafeteria, isn’t it much nicer in the Church? For this reason, Divine Office has a new podcast series and a new home on the web. You will find our new web site at www.DivineOffice.org or you can search iTunes for Divine Office. The new web site makes praying the Divine Office even easier then before. It always features todays liturgy on the front page in proper order and it offers a brief explanation of what each feast, memorial, or solemnity day is about as well as each of the major prayers for the day, or at least the ones we have recorded so far, and we have many more coming. From the web site at www.DivineOffice.org you can subscribe to the free audio podcast directly or by clicking a link that will take you to iTunes to subscribe. You can also subscribe by searching for Divine Office on iTunes where you will always have the next 7 days available so that you only need to synch your mp3 player once every week.
Let me quote one more thing before signing off. This is from the Office of the Sacred Congregation for Divine Worship.
“From ancient times the Church has had the custom of celebrating each day the liturgy of the hours. In this way the Church fulfills the Lord’s precept to pray without ceasing, at once offering its praise to God the Father and interceding for the salvation of the world.”
