William G. Storeys new compilation of the hours of Catholic daily prayer refreshes and renews the popular devotional practice that has given spiritual sustenance to millions of Christians throughout the centuries. The Liturgy of the Hours is presented in language that is both dignified and contemporary, crafted in accordance with Vatican IIs liturgical emphasis and promotion of scriptural prayer. Part 1 of the volume is a "Book of Hours" that provides a guide for prayer in five "hours" throughout the day, to be prayed over the course of a week. It also offers a flexible alternative version of the hours that can be said on any day of the week. Part 2 includes a collection of prayers expressing devotion to the Eucharist, Jesus, Mary, and the Holy Spirit. Throughout the book, readers experience the heart and soul of Catholic Christianity.
