In the parish of Wexford where I minister, during the recent Easter Triduum celebrations, we had morning prayer from the Liturgy of the Hours on Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Holy Saturday. The gatherings were well attended and appreciated by the people, many of whom were introduced to praying the Liturgy of the Hours for the first time. Going forward in the future with the reduced numbers of priests to lead Eucharist, it is likely that praying the Liturgy of the Hours will become more popular and will become an increasingly valuable prayer resource for parish communities. In the video below, Bishop Robert Barron speaks about the Liturgy of the Hours - the origins of it and the wider use of it today beyond monasteries an convents and how it is being discovered as a spiritual treasure by all the people of God.
