Prayer #9: The Divine Office & Third Orders
From ancient times the Church has made the hours of the day consecrated to God. Learn the history of what we called either the Breviary, Divine Office, or Liturgy of the Hours. This form of liturgical prayer is prayed seven times throughout the day. This lesson also includes information on the Third Orders of the Church which allow lay people to actually become part of a religious order while still remaining in the world as lay people.
