New Series: The Psalms

I was tempted to buy the U. This time around, the ordering process was simplified so I thought because you could order directly from the Paulines Africa web site. However, the web site would not let me register, so I had to contact them by e-mail to complete registration. Then the web site would not permit me to complete the credit card payment for the order, even though I attempted it several times trying to ignore the warnings from my browser that this was not a secure site and that my sensitive information could be stolen by third party hackers.

So I ended up e-mailing them again, and had to order the same way I had done in the past by sending a credit card donation to the Paulines in Boston along with special instructions and a special number so that the Paulines in Boston could notify the Paulines in Africa that I had paid. The payment process took six days, and the books finally arrived in Tokyo twelve days after they were finally shipped, so the time from my first attempt to order until the books arrived was about two and a half weeks.

But I still consider it a good investment and I had received a monetary birthday gift which I used to pay for this. The ribbons varied in color and number with my set, and I imagine every set is lightly different. Three of the books had three ribbons, but volume two the thickest volume had four ribbons.


  • The new Translation of the Roman Missal – including the Order of Mass?
  • Bird & Squirrel on the Run!.
  • The Liturgy of the Hours, the Mass, and other things..
  • Dealing with the S-Words: Self-Esteem, Significance, Sex, Secrets, Suicide;
  • The South Dakota Lemon Law - When Your New Vehicle Goes Sour (Lemon Law books).

They each had a red ribbon plus a combination made of yellow, green or blue. We have a nice ribbon shop in Tokyo, so I will get more ribbons and tape them to the spine inside the covers. I always trim my ribbons so that they extend about an inch from the far corner of the page. Two of the books needed no ribbon trimming while the ribbons on the other two were quite long.

Also, as many people do, I melt the ends of new ribbons with a lighter so they don't fray, but these ribbons are not synthetic plastic type that will melt with a flame; instead they will burn. So I coated the ends with white craft glue such as Elmers because it dries tough and invisible, and gives your fingers something firm to grasp when turning pages. The ribbons in the photo already have the ends coated with this glue. These volumes are the same size as the one-volume The Prayer of the Church , and most of them are about the same thickness.

Volume one is a bit thinner. The pages look exactly like the pages in the one-volume breviary, so I won't bore you with more photos of the inside pages. One big difference I have discovered to my surprise was the absence of Psalm prayers in the four-volume set. In the one-volume edition, the Psalm prayers are printed in italics, and are easily overlooked, which is a welcome feature for those who don't pray the Psalm prayers. But in the four-volume set, they are completely gone. These books have vinyl covers which are plain and practical.

I wish I could have gotten these with leather covers, gold edges and round corners, but those options are not available. And I am not so obsessed with their appearance that I would want to send these away to a professional re-binder for an overhaul. The photograph at the beginning of this article has all three editions in a line. This is a composite photo, and the photos were taken at different times when each of the volumes were brand new. The paperback Christian Prayer I bought five years ago is very worn now.

I have covered it with book binding tape, so there is no reason to take a photo of it now, because it doesn't look the same.

How to use the Daily Roman Missal

The one-volume The Prayer of the Church I bought four years ago is also well worn, and the gold lettering is completely worn off the cover. These are advertised as leather, but I don't think they are real leather.

But they seem real tough all the same, so now I can toss my breviary into a backpack without worrying about damage. The bottom line -- literally, in this article -- is that the African Breviary although not perfect has a lot of those elements that the rest of the world has been waiting for, and it is available right now. It is a good investment because it will not suddenly become out of date when the rest of the world catches up -- hopefully in our life time, but who knows?

The Breviary is meant to be prayed at specific times during the day. Before the revision following Vatican II there were many more hours including ones in the middle of the night that have since been dropped. Prior to Vatican II, the Breviary was divided into sections that were to be prayed about every three hours throughout the day and night. Morning started with Prime at 6am, Terce at 9am, Sext at noon, None at 3pm, Vespers at 6pm, Matins was divided into three parts prayed at 9pm, midnight and 3am and Lauds was prayed at dawn.

The hours prayed late at night have been removed. The pre-Vatican II Breviary is available in a two-volume, hardback set.

This set is entirely in Latin. You can also purchase an abbreviated version called the Divine Office which contains the major hours with English translations alongside the Latin. Divine Office is just another term referring to the Breviary. There are several options available for the post-Vatican II Breviary, usually referred to as the Liturgy of the Hours.

The full Liturgy of the Hours is available in both a leather and vinyl cover edition. You can also get a large print version. You can also get a single volume edition of the Liturgy of the Hours called Christian Prayer also available in hardback and large print that contains the major offices but leaves out the Office of Readings which contains all the wonderful writings of the Church Fathers. There are also several hymnals and other editions and guides available but this summary should provide you with enough information to answer most questions you receive.

Therefore, while these norms allow for wide latitude in adapting the office to special circumstances, their application would require a certain familiarity with the intricacies of the book and a certain level of theological and liturgical formation. There are also fewer options for votive offices in the Liturgy of the Hours than there are for votive Masses in the Roman Missal. One reason for this is the general preference for maintaining the full four-week cycle of psalms as far as possible. Therefore the above norms would suggest that votive offices be used above all for pastoral reasons and less so for motives of personal devotion such as on first Fridays.

Another probable reason is the historical development of the Divine Office with respect to the Mass. Participation in the Liturgy of the Hours rapidly became the almost exclusive province of clergy and religious. Mass, by its very nature, is destined for all Catholics. It was therefore quite natural that, over time, people would be more likely to request a specific Mass according to their devotion than a particular office.

Indeed, the very concept of a votive Mass is one which does not correspond to the canonical office of the day but is offered for a "votum," or special intention.

Ritual Masses and funerals would also be considered votive masses in a broad sense. There are already some traces of Masses celebrated for such special intentions in the writings of St. Augustine, although the term votive Mass first appears in liturgical books around the middle of the fifth century. Votive offices first appear several centuries later, usually corresponding to the devotion of religious orders. These were briefer supplementary offices to be prayed outside of the canonical hours in honor of the Trinity, Mary, the saints, the Holy Cross, for the dead, etc.

It was these supplementary votive offices, rather than the Divine Office itself, which became popular with the educated laity in medieval times. Thus were formed the illustrated manuscripts called Books of the Hours, if in Latin, and prymers, if in English. A particular form of votive office, the "Little Office of the Blessed Virgin Mary," was particularly diffused and was even an obligatory addition to the Divine Office for some religious orders.

These prayer books were among the most popular of the Middle Ages, and many manuscripts are still extant. Over the course of several reforms of the Roman breviary a few votive offices, above all those dedicated to Mary, the saints and the dead, entered into the official text. Logically however, these were far less than those of the missal.
