Forgive me this may seem like a stupid question. But I am quite curious how to pray liturgy of the hours, is there anything I would need, I heard that to pray it is quite difficult. Is there any way someone could tell me just through a message how to pray it??
Thanks so very much:)
no it is not hard, nor is it expensive. you can go to universalis.com and pray on-line, simply click on prayer for the time of day, morning, evening or night, and read, carefully, with attention, meditatively as with all prayer. most people find they pay attention better if the read aloud. If after you have formed the habit of at least morning and evening prayer you find you want a book, start with Shorter Christian Prayer, about $15, and just start with the 4 week psalm cycle and pray. When you have a firm habit of regular prayer for a year or so you can get some help with the propers and so forth. It is most important for form a regular daily habit. You don't ever need to invest in a more expensive book, but the next choice would be Christian Prayer, one volume, so you can pray with the seasons of the Church year. By this time you should be more familiar with the rhythm and have found others to pray with or to help you.
