And the Advent Book begins tomorrow! I'm so excited!

A smile can make it all feel a little better. So, I go and smile at myself in the mirror. Shallow or what? But it works... My name is Kathy and I'm Pennsylvania.

Dee I here ya, but I can help for today... Sunday we begin a new volume YAY ADVENT. All the background and instructions are at the front of that book for all four volumes...

TODAY is Nov 30 the Feast Day celebrating the Apostle Andrew- St. Peter's brother.

So special pages are used because it is a special day

Green Book - Ordinary Time weeks 18-34
(and this is week 34) This book is to be used through tomorrow... Kind of fun to give it a little attention before you begin Sunday with the
Blue or ADVENT book

Today's pages
1673 - begins the treasure map - as I see it (a collection of treasured writings and prayers).
1673 sends you to - put a ribbon in it (note the antiphon)
613 for the Invitatory Psalm 95 - the antiphon is on page 1673
Put a ribbon in it
End the Invitatory with a Glory Be.... As written
On to the readings as directed on p. 615
Read the opening at the top of that page then turn to today's readings for THE COMMON OF APOSTLES because we're celebrating St. Andrew so
Page 1673- Office of Readings includes Psalms 19, 64, 97 followed by the
1ST READING on
1678
It directs us next to PAGE 1584 -1587 when instructed to
Page 616 for the Te Deum
Page 1587 - 1590 for Morning Prayer which is pretty short ending with an Our Father and then a beautiful Prayer

TADA! If you can do it and love books as I do, it is such a treasured blessing... So here I go to follow my own directions. Hope I got it right.

Oh this is hard but so worth it

I am working my way through those instructions at the front of The ADVENT book. I guess this is called New Catholic's first Advent excitement. Smile. Hugs. Prayers for your successful experience with our Lord.



A smile can make it all feel a little better. So, I go and smile at myself in the mirror. Shallow or what? But it works... My name is Kathy and I'm Pennsylvania.

I didn't even realize that the word Vespers meant Evening Prayers. I really like the universalis site. Thank you for sharing it with me.

I absolutely love it, too. I try to pray it in Polish or in English. I used to say the Morning Laudes as soon as kids are out to school and DH to work, and before my morning coffee and breakfast.You are inspiring me to go back to this great habit! The Compline (last hour of the day) is said last thing before going to sleep, even if it is after midnight, so the next day formally already started. Vespers are usually done about 6 pm. Lectio Divina ( the hour of readings) can be said anytime during the day.
Here is the link to the online Liturgy of The Hours:
divineoffice.org/

Here is another useful link. I have also Liturgy of the Hours on my Kindle Fire, it's downloaded from the Universalis website.

I love the Liturgy of the Hours... I have been remiss is discipline and went to the Sacrament of Reconciliation two weeks ago to confess this to our precious Father Walsh. My penance was to pray either Morning or Evening every day for a week. He is so wise. I am back on track and cannot wait to begin This Sunday's Advent prayers and readings.

As a new Catholic this is all sort of hard for me to figure out and I just read that the full instructions are in the front of the Advent Book./ I have the four book set. I have been studying the instructions and background at the front of the book. How very beautiful are the words of guidance. I think I understand the prescribed timing for Morning and Evening as first light/first thing in the morning and last light/ sundown in the evening. Does that sound correct? I still haven't figured out yet when the other readings should be. Life is a process and this is one that I love!

Who else is doing the Divine Office? ...and yes, when I am not home I use The Divine Office Ap on my iPhone. LOL. Gotta love technology!

I pray the Morning Prayer of the Divine Office daily... I love praying with the psalms.

LeslieJean,

They are recorded on a podcast and written down.
You can go in at any time and do them.

They also give you all the different page numbers in the LOH
or Christian Prayer books so you can follow along as well.
But even if you don't have either book, you can see and
participate in the daily prayers.

Jesus, I trust In You!

Does anyone do any of the offices each day?

I love the divineoffice.com. It has several of the offices on podcast so you can say /pray them with others and it is all in one place, so no trying to find several different readings in different places.

My goal is to pray morning, evening, and night prayer right now and maybe someday do the others.

Jesus, I trust In You!
