The Daily Office

You must do the exercise on the Lectio Divina before attempting this one.

The daily office is an ancient rhythm of prayer. Phyllis Tickle has written some of the best resources for practice.  Explore the following websites.

Now give it a try with Phyllis’s “breviary.” This is essentially a “brief” daily office. Hers is not based on the lectionary but it is good for those who may want something simpler.
