Friday before Pentecost

Sunday evening I will change Easter to Ordinary time. This Easter season, I was able to pray Morning prayer more than ever before. Usually I let the Liturgy of the Hours lag, and then when Easter comes, I dust that book off, and begin to pray. After a few weeks of flipping, my personal laziness and confusion about the order of the prayers, I quit. I have been blessed with more helps than I have had in the past. I use three sources,,, and The first has a weekly guide you may print. The second has a monthly guide for Morning and Evening prayer. Classical Liberal Arts offers an opportunity to sign up for a weekly email with a printable guide for all the prayers of the Liturgy of the Hours for a week. Another handy site is They offer many helps for the Divine Office. There is a site I really like, If you can afford their modest fee, their subscription is worth every cent. I used to download a weeks worth of prayers and load it on my bebook book reader, it worked great, but I dropped it, and it will be a while before I can send it back for repairs. I highly reccomend the four volume set, buy it even if you have to hock something to get it. If the four volume set is beyond your means, at least buy Christian Prayer, it has Morning and Evening Prayer. I think all Catholics should start praying the Liturgy of the Hours. It won't be easy but it will be worth it.
