- Daria Sockey
Published by: Servant Books
From the back cover:
The Liturgy of the Hours is the daily prayer of the universal Church, but all those "hours," the hymns, the multi-colored ribbons, the page-flipping are intimidating.
Daria Sockey provides a solid overview in this practical handbook, giving you the confidence you need to start right away.
Learn about the history of the Liturgy of the Hours, why it is relevant today, and how to choose from the many resources available for the prayers and hymns.
Sockey helps you start slowly and build a daily habit that can fit into even the busiest schedules.
This is arguably the most concise, yet thorough book on this subject.
Though not a large volume [116 pages], it is filled with the best information and practical advice for praying this official prayer of the Church.
