I am thinking seriously of trying to start a group to say Morning Prayer at my parish. I have been doing some research to get all my ducks in a row before I suggest it to the pastor.
My wife and I currently pray LOTH, Office of Readings in the morning using the 4 vol set of books. I know there are other sources and I have compared them because while a lot of people pray the Hours, most probably do not use the (expensive) 4 volume set.
What I came up with as other sources for the Morning Prayer are, Christian Prayer, Shorter Christian Prayer, Divine Office.org, Universallis, iBrievery, and the Mendelian Psalter. As far as the Psalms, reading, and prayers they are identical as far as I was able to determine I did not check every day in all of them but what I did check was the same.
When it comes to the hymns though, there was almost no agreement. So now my question.
If any of you participate in a communal Morning Prayer such as I am contemplating, where the participants may be using multiple sources for the prayer, how are the hymns done so that everyone has the same hymn?
