Totally and completely worthless for its purpose, worth every penny of the $0.00 I paid.
For example, the author explains the meaning of the word: Breviary. He then goes on and offers various meanings of the "Times of Prayer". For example, the first hour or "Time of Prayer" in times past was "Matins" (now known as the Office of Readings). It was traditionally prayed at midnight and brought to mind that at about this time Jesus was bound.
The other Times of Prayer (TOP) some considered as follows:
2nd TOP: Jesus is reviled.
3rd TOP: He is condemned to death.
4th TOP: He is nailed to a Cross.
5th TOP: He is pierced.
6th TOP: He is taken down.
7th TOP: Buired.
Hope to write more later as I progress through this book.
With some effort, the rewards from reading this book by a reader sincere in his desire to understand all that there is in praying the Hours are great. The Divine Office is not for the dilitant, it is for one mature in faith and prayer looking for a deeper understanding of the Office.
