I’m trying to learn the Divine office. I’ve read that it is best to start small & work my way up. It’s recommended to start with Morning & Evening prayer.
Well, I’m having trouble with the Invititary & it’s Antiphon.
I bought the single volume “Christian Prayer,” I’ve downloaded iBreviary, & I’ve bookmarked Universalis. I’ve gone through them hoping I could “set up” the days prayer, but they all come up different. Especially the antiphon of the Invititary.
I understand I’ve got the option of four Psalms, so I understand the difference there & can figure out that one version chose one Psalm where another version used another.
But the antiphon. Here’s a link to another site that plays recordings of the day’s Offices. I don’t know where they got the hymn from, or the antiphon. This link is for morning prayer, not the Invitatory, but it’s the same issue. The recording doesn’t match my volume of Christian Prayer, which doesn’t match iBreviary, which doesn’t match Universalis.
Anyone got any tips?
