Experience the richness and beauty of an ancient prayer practice, celebrated in a modern monastic community.
At the Church of the Transfiguration on Cape Cod, the Liturgy of the Hours is observed each day by the Community of Jesus, an ecumenical Christian community in the Benedictine monastic tradition. The Liturgy of the Hours is the heartbeat of everyday life; the pulse that sustains and nurtures the community. In this little book, all the richness of this ancient prayer practice is presented in a modified version for Christians everywhere. The Little Book of Hours provides four weeks of services, with three services for every day, as well as a helpful introduction that explains how you can "pray the hours" in the midst of a busy life, and many additional collects and services.
"Prayer is first and foremost about a relationship and this relationship fills our life with meaning and purpose. Prayer is not so much an exercise of piety as it is an exchange of love."
- from The Little Book of Hours
