Office of Readings is incomplete
on May 28, 2005
This one volume edition of the Liturgy of the Hours has everything you need to celebrate morning and evening prayer (Lauds and Vespers) and night prayer (Compline). While it has a few selections from the Office of Readings (Matins) it does not have the complete office for the whole year. This is why the previous reviewer did not know what to do with the non biblical writings; these are mere fragments of Matins. If you want to celebrate Matins, you'll need the four volume set.
Since the Office of Readings is my favorite hour, I was disappointed with this edition, especially since it became redundant once I bought the 4 volume set.
