EWTN Series on Liturgy of the Hours

Don't miss it.

Although I"m afraid I'm a little late here. The first one already ran tonight. Luckily, you can access most EWTN programming on their website.

  1. Fr. Gallagher has a great voice. He's pretty informative in the first episode; 30 minutes. Check out his series on the "Discernment of Spirits."

  7. I hope I can watch this online. Thanks for the heads-up Daria!

    Btw, those of us who follow the ordo of the Ordinariate of the Chair of St Peter begin celebrating Candlemas today with I Vespers. Looking forward to EF and OF eventually following the lead and restoring! :-D

  9. I hope it's ok to post a question here: if I combine Office of Readings with Morning Prayer, are there two hymns (one near the beginning and one right after the first Our Father as The Morning Prayer portion begins? Or only one at the beginning, taken optionally from either the Office of Readings and Morning Prayer?

    1. Hi Micki, my understanding of the GILH rubric is that you either (a) include both hymns, or (b) replace the OOR hymn after the invitatory with the Lauds hymn, and thus no hymn at the beginning of Lauds. At the same time, hymns seem to be optional for private, non-choral recitation anyway, so theoretically, you could also use the OOR hymn at the beginning and skip the Lauds hymn altogether.

      TL;DR: Either seems rubrically OK.

      PS Mandatory plug here for Samuel Weber OSB's "Hymnal for the Hours." It's about $20 on Lulu, and has all the Latin LOTH's proper Gregorian hymns in English translation and set to their tones. Far superior to the random medley in the American LOTH (I can't speak for the UK's Divine Office). I myself use the same hymnal for the Ordinariate's Daily Office. It was $20 very well spent.

    2. You may do both hymns in their usual places.

  10. Thank you both! I guess I will continue to do both hymns in their usual places.

  11. Hi everyone hope you are having a fruitful Lent thus far. I have finally got the hang of or so I think, on how memorials are celebrated (I know in this Season of Lent we don't have any) however I noticed that st Athanasius falls in the 5th week of Easter so is that everything from Easter from for lauds and vespers with the concluding prayer of the saint? Thanks and God bless.

  12. 235. In the office of readings, at morning prayer, and at evening prayer:
    a. the psalms and their antiphons are taken from the current week and day, unless there are proper antiphons or proper psalms, which is indicated as the case occurs;
    b. the antiphon at the invitatory, the hymn, the short reading, the antiphons at the Canticles of Zechariah and of Mary, and the intercessions must be those of the saint if these are given in the proper; otherwise, they are taken either from the common or from the current week and day;
    c. the concluding prayer from the office of the saint is to be said;
    d. in the office of readings, the Scripture reading with its responsory is from the current cycle. The second reading is about the saint, with a proper responsory or one taken from the common; if there is no proper reading, the patristic reading for the day is used. The Te Deum is not said.
    236. At daytime prayer and night prayer, all is from the weekday and nothing is from the office of the saint.

  13. Just wanted to ask quickly, in the UK 17th is the Feast of St Patrick and I'm aware that you use week 1 Sunday psalms with antiphons from the Common of Pastors as he was a Bishop, my question mainly is, can I use the weekday psalter for Saturday week 4 with the antiphon and the reading from the common of pastors with his concluding prayer instead of the complimentary psalms? Also can I do this for St Joseph's day on the 19th? Thanks

  14. If a saint has the category of solemnity or feast, for example, St. Joseph or St. Patrick in some countries, then it is celebrated as normal with vestments of the corresponding color, the recitation of the Glory and, on solemnities, the Creed. The readings and the Liturgy of the Hours are those proper to the feast.

  15. How the Office is arranged on Feasts
    231 Feasts do not have first Vespers, unless they are feasts of the Lord occurring on Sundays. At
    the Office of Readings, Lauds and Vespers, everything is the same as on a solemnity.
    232 In the Prayer during the Day, the hymn of the day is said; the psalms with their antiphons
    are of the ferial day, unless a special reason or tradition requires that the antiphons be
    proper. This will be indicated in the appropriate place. The short reading and the concluding
    prayer are from the Proper.
    233 Compline is said as on ordinary days.

    1. Ah so it will be Sunday week 1 psalms obviously as its a Feast, and prayer during the day will be from Saturday week 4 and Monday week 1 Prayer during the day with antiphons of both S.S Patrick and Joseph respectively?

  16. I understand that only a commemoration is allowed for S. Patrick this year but S. Joseph has the whole day including a vigil. That's just for USA.

  17. St. Patrick's Day has never really been straightened out. It's a mess:

  18. Thank you one and all for your help on the subject of Saint Patrick it's much appreciated. I just wanted to ask as I'm pondering Holy Thursday, I know the rubric for Holy Thursday states: The Mass of the Lord's Supper is in lieu of Vespers, but how many of you have or will pray Vespers anyway if you are watching with Christ in Gethsemane? God bless you all.

    1. Mitchell, praying vespers while keeping vigil is an excellent idea. The Church, in its wisdom, did not want HOly Thursday mass-goers--and even more so, busy parish priests--to be liturgically overburdened during our high holy days. But certainly the psalms and antiphons and readings of Holy Thursday Vespers would make great points for meditation during the night watch. I admit I haven't thought to do that before, but maybe I"ll give it a try this year.
