Liturgy of the Hours


Through the Liturgy of the Hours (or Divine Office) we participate in priestly office of Christ. We sing of the marvels of the Lord and extend through time the praise, thanksgiving, memorial of the mysteries of salvation, supplications and the foretaste of heavenly glory: all prerogatives of the Eucharistic mystery. In praying the Liturgy of the Hours, we unite ourselves in prayer with the whole Church and take upon ourselves the evets of history.

It is a communal prayer of the People of God. Evolved over the centuries, this prayer was revised and promoted by the Second Vatican Council. Through it the baptised may join themselves to the prayer of Jesus Christ to the Father. It is composed of psalms, hymns and spiritual songs, reflective reading of the Word of God, as well as prayers and intercessions for the needs of the Church and the World. It is a worship of God throughout the day, the sanctification of the whole day. In the prayer of the Christian community, Lauds (Morning Prayer) and Vespers (Evening Prayer) are of the highest importance. Hence, they are considered as the chief hours of the Divine Office.

The Sister Disciples of the Divine Master, one mind and voice, celebrate the Morning and Evening Prayer in common daily, in union with the incessant prayer of Christ and of the Church.

Everyone is welcome to pray with our communities Lauds and Vespers in our chapels.
