Liturgy of the Hours-"Praying the Breviary"
"Seven times a day I praise you, because your judgments are righteous." PS 119:164
“From ancient times the Church has had the custom of celebrating each day the liturgy of the hours. In this way the Church fulfills the Lord’s precept to pray without ceasing, at once offering its praise to God the Father and interceding for the salvation of the world.”
