Well, for those who have or know about this devotion...

Do you know any website that shows the order of how to say this morning and evening prayer, because I know that it differs everyday and is confusing if you just open it up and start from page one without any guidance or directions...??

Or maybe you dont need a website to tell me how to follow it, maybe you know it off the top of your head and can explain it real quick?

Thanks , Paul

Paul,
As a person who has prayed the Office for years, that book should be banned ;) You have to have a Ph.D. in Flippin'-through-things-really-fast-and-accurate to use it. I think you might ease your potential frustration A BUNCH by purchasing the one volume Christian Prayer. See this thread for some links to help.

hehehe...I picked it up in Jan, I find it simple ONCE YOU UNDERSTAND IT! ;)

Generally, it goes the invitatory, sing a psalm, read from the psalter, then switch to the readings in the front- right now. Once ordinary time hits it will get MUCH easier. Hmm..I don't know the offical names of most of it HA. Sorry, that probably didn't help much.

If you can find a group to say it with, DO SO! That will be the easiest way to learn.

See if you can pick up on the patterns over time- that is the easiest way, just keep doing it, you'll get it!

These may help you get started:

Hi Paul, when I get off-track I check this site to make sure I'm on the right week or reading the correct reading for the day.

But even then you can get into problems, e.g. with today Thursday 5-May-2005.

It depends on where you are whether today is celebrated as the "plain" Thursday of the Sixth Week of Easter or as the Solemnity of the Ascension. In some places Ascension is celebrated on the Seventh Sunday of Easter. There are thus also differences from today through Sunday. Finally on Monday of the Seventh Week of Easter both variants converge again.

I purchase a book called "The Order of Prayer in the Liturgy of the Hours and Celebration of the Eucharist." that includes my Diocese. The book covers the Dioceses in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and Alaska. It gives the proper prayers for each day so you don't get caught in the Ascension conundrum. :)

I don't know if other Dioceses have these, but I imagine they do. It is published by Paulist Press. You might be able to order one from:

Paulist Press Ordo
997 Macarthur Blvd.
Mahwah, NJ 07430

They do have a website: http://www.paulistpress.com

That is a most valuable little book -- the so-called Paulist Press ORDO. I purchase one every year (needed, since the calendar dates change every year) for the Archdiocese of Boston and the Dioceses of Fall River, Springfield, and Worchester.

It provides lots of information for the local calendar, e.g. the March 17th celebration of St. Patrick which is normally just an "optional memorial" is instead celebrated as a Feast in Boston since St. Patrick is the principal patron of the Archdiocese.
