I do Morning and Evening prayers. I use Magnificat, a monthly magazine that has the prayers and Daily mass for the month.
Peace,
Linda

I've been praying it for about three years, and am (God willing) two years from promising to do so for the rest of my life.

I do morning and evening prayer whenever I can. I'm not as consistent with it as I'd like to be though.

I do the Office of Readings, Morning Prayer, and Evening Prayer. Sometimes night prayers. I rarely do the mid day prayers, hard to fit in at work.

I've done it for 2 years (almost 3).

My uncle (who is really the only faithful Catholic in my family) got me Shorter Christian Prayer (I think thats what its called, hard to remember now) and I did that for about a year before my mother got me the complete set for Christmas :)

I pray the little office of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

I do the Liturgy of the Hours, usuallly in Latin. Sometimes I switch to other languages such as Portuguese LOTH for the feast of St. Anthony of Lisbon (Padua). :cloud9:

Before becoming Catholic I prayed the morning and evening office in the (Episcopalian) BCP. I was delighted to discover the richness of the 4 volume LOH, from which I've been privileged to pray the Morning, Evening, and OOR now for 9 years. I hope Liturgicam Authenticam will be directed this direction as well.
