Morning Prayers March 08 2009

Audio of Morning Prayers for March 07, 2009.

Psalm 118; Daniel 3:52-57; Psalm 150; Nehemiah 8:9,10

I love how Psalm 118, like so many of the Psalms address not just Israel’s lay (sons of Israel) and priestly (sons of Aaron) people, but also the gentile strangers among them (those who fear the Lord). It makes them speak more personally across the centuries.

From ancient times the Church has had the custom of celebrating each day the Liturgy of the Hours, also known as the Divine Office. 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. Join me in praying the Liturgy of the Hours today and throughout the lenten season.
