Benedictine Daily Prayer

Benedictine Daily Prayer


    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 more user-friendly layout
    • 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
    • Slightly taller format

    Benedictine Daily Prayer is designed for all who pray in the monastic tradition including Benedictine oblates and Benedictine monastics. Small enough to fit in a briefcase for travel, it is arranged by date. Scripture readings are from the NRSV.
