Publisher's Description

2021 Catholic Media Association Award first place award in backlist beauty

Benedictine Daily Prayer provides an everyday edition of the Divine Office for people who desire to pray with the church in a simple manner. Based on fifteen hundred years of liturgical prayer within the Benedictine monastic tradition, Benedictine Daily Prayer offers a rich diet of classic office hymnody, psalmody, and Scripture.
This fully revised edition includes: 
  • A new organization for the Office of Vigils, structured on a two-week cycle
  • Daily Offices also arranged on a two-week cycle
  • Patristic readings for each Sunday
  • Concluding prayers for the daily and seasonal offices
  • A more user-friendly layout
Benedictine Daily Prayer is designed for Benedictine oblates, Benedictine monastics, and men and women everywhere. Small enough to fit in a briefcase for travel, it is arranged by date. Scripture readings are from the NRSV.

Editorial Reviews

"Anyone who desires to pray Christian daily prayer offices will welcome this fresh revision of Benedictine Daily Prayer. Much easier to use with less turning of pages, a generous selection of psalmody, additional readings from patristic sources for all three years, arranged in two-week cycles-all these features make this a more accessible and rich resource for a wide ecumenical company of prayer. Indispensable to daily spiritual practice."
Don E. Saliers, Cannon Professor of Theology and Liturgy, Emeritus, Theologian-in-Residence, Emory University

"Everything you need to pray the monastic Liturgy of the Hours is here between two covers. If you are traveling, praying alone, or simply looking for patristic readings to enrich your lectio, this book will satisfy. It is both user-friendly and rich in resources. The Press has given us a truly liturgical treasure."
Irene Nowell, OSB, Mount Saint Scholastica, Atchison, Kansas

"Benedictine Prayer offers a resource for a Benedictine way of praying the hours which draws on both a rich tradition and on a lengthy experience of responding to pastoral needs since the 1940's. It will be particularly suitable for those who wish to pray the office outside the monastery but it will also be a helpful resource for any monastic communities who work to re-shape their own celebrations of the Work of God."
Columba McCann, Ecclesia orans

"I loved this breviary. The jewel of the hours in this prayer book is Vigils. Indeed, this is a great prayer book."
Mark Plaiss, Cistercian Studies Quarterly

"This magnificent edition is an indispensable resource. A rare resource for everyday prayer."
