It was truly exhilarating to pray in the words of King David, the apostles and Fathers and Doctors of the Church, and commemorate the wonderful treasure of feast days and memorials that fills nearly every day of the Catholic calendar with special prayers. Probably most of all, it is a very edifying feeling to pray with one voice, at the same time with all the priests, nuns and monks, ie probably the holiest people on earth sending a wonderful communal prayer up to our Heavenly Father. When I kneel before my altar, I think of the priests, including the Pope and the Bishops and Cardinals who are at the very same time (Obviously giving for the difference in time between different countries, which God obviously doesn't have to worry about) kneeling in the presbyteries, the nuns and monks kneeling on the hard floors in their convents and monasteries and I am spurred on with this wonderful vision of my brothers and sisters in Christ praying with me even though I seem to be praing alone, wherever I may be.
It's the version (Harper Collins) that we use in our local Church when we say the Morning prayer before the daily Mass. It takes a bit of getting used to, as to what exactly to say when, and unfortunately there aren't a lot of good guides out there. `Divine Office for dodos' seems to be the only book out there, which is very good at heart, but a bit tedious and nearly as big as the prayer book itself, so you are left feeling that you should get a diploma at the end of it. I had written a brief summary of the technique, but my computer crashed and I lost it. I will rewrite it, so watch this space. In the meantime, the best way to learn it well is to ask a priest, or go to morning prayer at your Church, or maybe Vespers at a seminary. You can always make a start by reading the guidance in the book itself and see how you go.
