 Our Description


Foreword by Archbishop Raymond Burke


This volume contains the Office of Compline for every day of the year, in Latin and English, according to the novus ordo of the Roman Catholic Church, with Gregorian Chant settings. On the facing pages for the Latin, the official English text is also arranged for chanting, using simple English tones. New translations have been made for the official hymns of the Office, and all the hymns are given with the Gregorian melodies proper for each season and feast of the liturgical year.

This book will find a welcome in parishes, cathedrals, religious communities and seminaries, as well as families, all who wish to pray together at the end of the day.

Complete instructions are given for praying Compline. The Foreword by Archbishop Raymond Burke explains the rich spiritual tradition of prayer at the close of day, and provides an inspiring meditation on the texts and meaning of the Office of Compline.

The scriptures give only one command concerning the frequency of prayer: pray without ceasing (Lk 18:1; 1 Thess 5:17). This volume will prove to be a welcome companion to all who are seeking to make a full response to the Gospel, and persevere in unceasing prayer.

This item received 5 stars overall. The best possible introduction to the Liturgy of the Hours

The Liturgy of the Hours is unique among the devotions of the Church because it is liturgy, it unites the Church in prayer before God.  However the Liturgy of the Hours is also difficult to learn individually.  Compline is usually recommended as the easiest hour to begin praying, because it is shorter and repeats on a weekly cycle instead of a four week cycle.  This book is the best introduction to praying Compline and to the general structure of the Hours that I have ever found.
The Office of Compline is a sturdy hardcover volume, which looks like it will hold up well under many years of daily use.  The binding is strong with an attached ribbon marker, and the paper used is substantial.  The text is two tone, red and black, for instructions and praye Full Review...
