The Daily Office.
The Daily Office is a set rhythm of reading the Scriptures, singing, and prayer. Sometimes called the Liturgy of the Hours, the Daily Office has been around for centuries, and is a spiritual practice to help us center each day in the presence of God while engaging the whole sweep of Scripture. In fact, if you read the Daily Office readings every day, you’d read most of the Old Testament in two years, and all of the New Testament every year. To learn more about the office, check out this post.
We’ll post the readings for each day’s office this week below:
Give us grace, O Lord, to answer readily the call of our Savior Jesus Christ and proclaim to all people the Good News of his salvation, that we and the whole world may perceive the glory of his marvelous works; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
