Liturgy of the Hours

“Be assiduous in prayer at the hours and times appointed.” (The Rule II, 10)

The Liturgy of the Hours

How does one stay connected to God throughout the ups and downs of day to day life?  The Roman Catholic Church provides us with a gift called the Liturgy of the Hours, a prayer structure that calls us to pray and sanctify the moments of the day to Christ.

Roman Catholic clergy and most consecrated religious are required to pray the Liturgy of the Hours every day.  Accordingly, Augustinian Friars pray the Liturgy of the Hours with their communities several times a day.  While there is no explicit requirement for the laity to pray the Liturgy of the Hours, the Church does recommend it.  

The series of posts below explain why and how Augustinian Spirituality invites all members of the Body of Christ to pray the Liturgy of the Hours.
