You don't live in a cloister or a monastery, but you take your prayer life seriously and want to explore ways to pray regularly and better. The Liturgy of the Hours is one of those ways—but for those of us who find it a little intimidating, Daria Sockey provides a solid overview to this ancient prayer practice. Sockey explores the spiritual riches of the seasons, the saints, and special feast days, which add depth and variety to prayer. She also addresses the practice of praying the Scriptures, especially the psalms, and helps the reader to appreciate the universal beauty of these ancient prayers. Stock #: B36528

Informative, but an easy read!

I am only half-way through the book, but I am enjoying it and learning so much. I would definitely recommend this book for anyone thinking about taking up the practice of the Liturgy of the Hours as a devotion. The author goes into great detail and gives practical advice on which parts are necessary for those who may feel overwhelmed.
