Here you will find our selection of books and guides related to the Liturgy of the Hours, or Divine Office.
The Liturgy of the Hours (also known as the Divine Office) is the richest single prayer resource of the Church and it is often called “The Prayer of the Church.” It provides prayers, psalms and meditation for every hour of every day. This form of prayer has existed from the earliest times, to fulfill the Lord’s command to pray without ceasing.
“The purpose of the Divine Office is to sanctify the day and all human activity. The Office is… the prayer not only of the clergy but of the whole People of God.” – Apostolic Constitution, Canticum Laudis.
