Little Portions of the
Divine Office for Today
*

"As the Prophet saith: 'Seven times a day I have given praise to Thee' (Psalm 118[119]:164), this sacred sevenfold number will be fulfilled by us in this wise if we perform the duties of our service at the time of Lauds, Prime, Terce, Sext, None, Vespers, and Compline because it was of these day hours that he hath said: "Seven times a day I have given praise to Thee" (Ps 118[119]:164). For the same Prophet saith of the night watches: "At midnight I arose to confess to Thee" **(Ps 118[119]:62)."

One should also note that Psalm 24 is part of Morning Prayer. However, those who use Psalm 24 as their Invitatory Psalm need to substitute Psalm 95 for 24.:coffeeread:
