CCC #1174 The Liturgy of the Hours is truly the voice of the Bride herself addressed to her Bridegroom

Posted on December 16, 2008. Filed under: Uncategorized |


The mystery of Christ, his Incarnation and Passover,
which we celebrate in the Eucharist especially at the Sunday
assembly, permeates and transfigures the time of each day,
through the celebration of the Liturgy of the Hours,
“the divine office.”

This celebration, faithful to the apostolic exhortations to
“pray constantly,” is “so devised that the whole course
of the day and night is made holy
by the praise of God.”

In this “public prayer of the Church,” the faithful
(clergy, religious, and lay people)
exercise the royal priesthood of the baptized.

… the Liturgy of the Hours
is truly the voice of the Bride herself addressed to her Bridegroom. It is the
very prayer which Christ himself together with his Body addresses
to the Father.”
