BOOK EXCERPT:

This book examines the process of the structural reform of the Office, the options available to the Vatican II reformers, and the choices they made. It reveals that their insistence on adhering to the norms of the Consitution on the Liturgy resulted in a structural reform that was both radical and flawed, leaving the door open to further restructuring.

The origins and development of the Divine Office are traced through both Eastern and Western branches of the Church, providing a wealth of historical and liturgical information. From the small beginnings of a few Christians in New Testament Jerusalem, the prayer of the Church spread, changing and evolving as it met and was assimilated by different cultures. This classic study is a major resource for the liturgical scholar.

BOOK EXCERPT:

The Church has been expressing its hope that the laity would come to know the Liturgy of the Hours ever since the Second Vatican Council. The problem is that the breviary is not something you can simply open and run with. It requires some instruction. To the rescue comes Evening Prayerbook. This workbook contains vespers for every Sunday and major feast day of the year. Each two-page spread contains everything needed for each evening--no search-and-flip missions required. Parenthetical comments on gestures and rubrics are in the margins. Especially helpful to those who do not have the guidance of a priest or religious is the tutorial page, which carefully explains each prayer and rubric, and how to alternate responses for vespers in a group setting. Beautiful artwork on the margins of each page are lovely designs, reminiscent of old illuminated manuscripts and color-coordinated to the liturgical season of each Sunday's evening prayer. The book's foreword, by Wayne Hepler, will both inform and motivate the reader to investigate the Liturgy of the Hours. Hepler is certain that praying just one hour of Sunday vespers regularly will "be the introduction into the love affair of a lifetime."

BOOK EXCERPT:

"This text is a supplement to Dominican Liturgy Publications' recently issued Propers of the Office for the Order of Preachers (2018). Friars using that volume have asked whether it is possible to have a companion volume with the prayers and short biographies of the Dominican blesseds not on the general calendar to the Order. Normally, these blesseds are liturgically celebrated with the rank of optional memorial only in the province where they worked or died. If their shrine is located in a Dominican priory, their day has, however, the rank of obligatory memorial in that community. It is possible, of course, to celebrate these blesseds outside of their provinces, if there is spiritual or pastoral reasons, again with the rank of optional memorial. The short biographies here presented are mostly giving in the translations found in the "Orange Book," that is, the Supplement to the Liturgy of the Hours for the Order of Preachers (Chicago: Dominican Liturgy Commission, 1991). For Dominicans beatified or canonized after 1991, however, translations of their short biographies were made, or, if necessary, composed for this publication. Their prayers are those prepared by the Dominican Liturgical Commission in Rome as part of the new translation of Dominican propers for the Roman Missal circulated among the provinces in 2012. These collects are also found in the Missal for the Order of Preachers (Oakland: Dominican Liturgy Publications, 2017). I pray that this publication will increase knowledge of and devotion to these less-well-known holy brothers and sisters of our Order. Fr. Augustine Thompson, O.P., St. Albert the Great Priory, June 12, 2018."--
