The Importance of the Liturgy of the Hours

April 8, 2022


In this video, Fr. Timothy Gallagher and Brandon Vogt discuss the basics of the Liturgy of the Hours, explain how it can deepen your prayer life, and explore what sets it apart from other forms of prayer:

The Liturgy of the Hours is an ancient, structured way of praying Scripture throughout the day, focusing especially on the Psalms. It hearkens back to the Jewish custom of praying at fixed hours, a practice early Christians continued.

It’s the Church’s official prayer and the highest form of prayer after the Mass. However, praying the Liturgy of the Hours can be expensive, confusing, and impractical. Word on Fire’s brand-new monthly subscription booklets make praying the Liturgy of the Hours easy, accessible, and affordable for all Christians.
