Reviews

More than simply a how-to-guide, The Everyday Catholic’s Guide to the Liturgy of the Hours, is studded with insightful gems with broad relevance to the devout life. Take this one on making time for prayer: The opportunity to sanctify time is something we should welcome. Ultimately, The Everyday Catholic’s Guide to the Liturgy of the Hours, like its subject matter, has something for everyone. That includes those who are not novices to this form of prayer, but perhaps are seeking a richer understanding of why they do what they do in the Liturgy of the Hours. Even those readers who do not immediately rush out to buy a breviary or log onto to divineoffice.org will find their prayer lives instantly enriched by reflections on the devout life that are universally applicable.
