Anonymous: Liturgia Horarum: Vol. 1 - Advent & Christmastide
The Liturgy of the Hours, often called the "Breviary," is *the* prayer book of the Roman Catholic Church. It is in three volumes, corresponding to different seasons of the Christian year. All priests, brothers, and sisters pray from this book up to seven times daily according to rule. It is also used by an increasing number of laymen. Each "hour" consists of Psalms and scripture readings, interspersed with other prayers. The book was reformed and simplified following the Second Vatican Council in order to make it more approachable for the whole Church. This is the Latin version with which the two current English translations (US and UK) are in concordance, not the later 1985 revision, for which there is no direct English hardcopy available.
It's impossible to find the English translations in any electronic form due to copyright (a detestable situation, given the subject matter.) It was converted from the plucker format for palm using plucker's explode tool and Kovid's html2lrf.
This post contains volume one of three, used during the seasons of Advent and Christmastide.
