Although we have a great treasury of private and devotional prayers such as the Rosary, this Liturgy is the heartbeat of the Church throughout the world fulfilling the Lord’s command to “Pray Aways”. All the world’s priests, deacons, religious and monastics pray this liturgy whether they gather in churches, chapels, homes or at work. It can be prayed in a community, with friends, together as a family or even alone. Doing so, we form not only a network of prayer throughout the world but we all pray together as a Church.
The Morning Prayer liturgy gives praise to God for His gift of a Day, always anticipating the Resurrection of the dead and all creation renewed.
The Daytime Prayer liturgy have us quickly reflect the challenges and hardships that we often must endure during the day when we often find ourselves “in the trenches”.
The Evening Prayer liturgy and vigils, have us look back at our day, remembering with thanksgiving that God was, whether we sensed His presence or not, been with us through every step.
The Night Prayer liturgy is a sort examination of our souls in preparation for sleep and anticipating our own resurrection into a new and eternal day with all the saint.
(The Office of Readings liturgy provides an extended invitation for supplemental spiritual reading and mediation to be used at any time.)
