Does anyone know what the four offices are that a priest must say during the course of a day?
The four hours of the Divine Office the a priest is obliged to pray every day are actually FIVE:
- Office of Readings (Matins), 2. Morning Prayer (Lauds), 3. one of the little hours (Mid-Morning / Terce, or Mid-Day / Sext, or Mid-Afternoon / None), 4. Evening Prayer / Vespers and 5. Night Prayer, Compline.
