The Liturgy of the Hours is the prayer of the Christian people. In the General Instructions on the Liturgy of the Hours, No. 20, it says, “The Liturgy of the Hours, like other liturgical actions, is not something private but belongs to the whole body of the Church, which it manifests and influences.” Vatican II when revising the Divine Office, sought to renew and revitalise all Christian prayer so that it will serve to nourish the spiritual life of the People of God.

In Part1 of the talks we:
i) study the historical and theological genesis of the Liturgy of the Hours, so that one can better appreciate the tradition of the Church with respect to her high regard for this prayer, which is the Official Prayer of the Church
ii) consider the intimate relationship between the Liturgy of the Hours, the Eucharist and the Sacrament of Baptism
iii) examine the place of the minister in the Liturgy of the Hours

Some of the topics that are dealt with include the following.:
1. The Divine Office and Modern Life
2. The Liturgy of the Hours as the Official Prayer of the Church
3. Basic Principles of Community Prayer
4. The Genesis and Origin of the Liturgy of the Hours
5. The Historical Development of the Liturgy of the Hours
6. The Liturgy of the Hours and the Eucharist
7. The Liturgy of the Hours and Baptism
8. The Minister of the Liturgy of the Hours
