Breviary, Liturgy of the Hours, What is Permitted?


This is an interesting question. I’m asking this about priests, not laypeople.

What is permitted for a US priest to use for his breviary?

Does he always have to use the most current English version for his country, or can he use older English versions, or versions for other countries as well?

What are the options?
