Prayer

Divine Office

Seven times every day we tune in to the Liturgy of the Hours in union with the Church in heaven and on earth. We unite with the unceasing praise and intercession which Christ offers to the Father for the salvation of the whole world. The psalms that were born out of life thousands of years ago, are the prayer of the People of God on pilgrimage in every age. Laden with every human emotion, they are new-born for every generation. The human heart, for all its vast discoveries in science and technology, never changes. In every age it grapples with the great mysteries of life, birth, suffering and death. In the inspired prayers of the psalms we lift up the joys and hopes, griefs and anxieties of the women and men of today. Nothing human fails to find an echo in our hearts. Above all it is our privilege to lead the whole of creation in a great chorus of praise and thanksgiving to the Trinity:- “Let everything that lives and that breathes, give praise to the Lord” (Ps 150)
