In private recitation of the Liturgy of the Hours (modern rite/Ordinary Form), would it be legitimate to use the Office of the Dead on weekdays of November which aren’t associated with a feast day?
The Office of the Dead is a prayer cycle of the Liturgy of the Hours in the Roman Catholic Church, said for the repose of the soul of a deceased individual or individuals. It is the proper reading on All Souls’ Day (normally November 2) for all souls in Purgatory, **and can be a votive office on other days **when said for a particular deceased.
Select from the following:
Invitatory — not yet available
For a man
For a Woman
For several people
For relatives, friends, and benefactors
Thank you detoutcoeur, very helpful post.
Simply put: yes.
That’s perfectly legitimate.
