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:

Daily Office Readings for Holy Week (April 5, 2020)

Collect
Almighty and everliving God, in your tender love for the human race you sent your Son our Savior Jesus Christ to take upon him our nature, and to suffer death upon the cross, giving us the example of his great humility: Mercifully grant that we may walk in the way of his suffering, and also share in his resurrection; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
