The Liturgy of the Hours draws the reader into a world of prayer that possesses great and surpassing beauty. We discover the joy of praying in a rich and meaningful way. We also delight to know that in saying the Liturgy of the Hours, we join in the same prayer that is being said around the world.
This book offers guidance to those who may be saying the Liturgy of the Hours in private, as an individual form of prayer. It also offers guidance to groups who may be wishing to introduce the Liturgy of the Hours as a practice within their parish, showing how the many different parts of an Hour can be spoken by various members of a group.
