Christian Prayer

My friend L, for an Easter present, gave me a copy of the book of Christian Prayer. It's a 1-book version of the Liturgy of the Hours. I always wondered why people said it was complicated. Now I know. Holy cow, I don't know if I'm EVER going to get it figured out! I think I'll buy a book on how to use it from the bookstore next time I go there. Wow, is it confusing!

I do think, though, that it will be a rewarding thing to learn how to use. I need all the help in prayer that I can get!

Hello...just happened upon your blog and wanted to say "welcome". I came into the Church in 1991 and I well remember this time. I hope you have a blessed Triduum and I will be adding you to my prayers for all those coming into the church on Saturday. God bless you!

Catholic Book Publishing Company, the same people who publish "Christian Prayer," publish an annual "St. Joseph Guide for Christian Prayer" that gives you all the correct page numbers for each day.

For more detailed information, the Rosary Shop has published a guide to the Liturgy of the Hours. The second edition, "Lord, Open My Lips," can be bought in bookstores, but the first edition should still be available free from their website. Just go to the "Liturgy of the Hours" area on their homepage and their should be a link to download the first edition.

Thank you for that tip! I'll definitely look the rosary shop book up.

I've got a little St. Joseph's guide, but it's still a bit overwhelming. I'm getting it, though. Thank goodness EWTN has audio of Morning and Evening prayers - that helped a LOT yesterday. Of course, I am only on Day 2 of attempting the LOTH, so I imagine it's a bit understandable that I may be a touch confused. But good things come to those who persevere, I figure.
