Day #89: Sacrosanctum Concilium 83-87

Today in the Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy, we begin Chapter IV on the Divine Office, also known as the Liturgy of the Hours.

Today’s reading speaks of the great importance of the Divine Office.  The Council speaks so highly of the Divine Office that it says “it is truly the voice of the bride addressed to her bridegroom; It is the very prayer which Christ Himself, together with His body, addresses to the Father” (artilce 84).

Today’s excerpt lays the thological groundwork for the practical revisions which will be looked at in tomorrow’s reading.

Here are the Scripture references:

1 Thess. 5:11

John 15:5

Acts 6:4

No footnotes.
