Let my prayer rise before you like incense, and the lifting of my hands like an evening offering...
Deeply part of our life is the daily chanting of the Liturgy of the Hours, or "Divine Office". Etymologically connected to the Latin word for work, "Office" refers to the performance of a task, a duty.
being, immersed in the prayer of the Church, is shaped and formed by the mysteries of Christ's life as they are presented to her consideration, one after another, like the beads of the rosary. Each of the saints shares with her his insights as she joins with them in the sublime task of adoring God. Together each day proclaiming His praise, we pray that our prayer might rise before Him like clouds of sweet incense.
