Airtime for the Liturgy of the Hours

I just noticed an article about the Liturgy of the Hours in the latest print edition of the National Catholic Register.  I hope that link will open for non-suscribers. Let me know.  

Next,  I found something even better: this podcast of the latest Register Radio program, in which the author of the article, Celeste Behe, talks with Register director Dan Burke all about our favorite scriptural prayer.

Both Dan and Celeste make many good points about the impact of liturgical prayer in their lives, and it's significance in our troubled times.  They bring up several instances of Catholic workplaces where the staff pray one or more of the hours together each day, and the positive effect that this has had on interpersonal relations.

They also plug my book several times during the discussion, and I am grateful for that.

This part of the podcast starts at around 14:20, in case you don't have time to listen to the earlier guest during the first half of the podcast.

As always, please feel free to make any comment or ask any question related to the Liturgy of the Hours in the comment section below.
