The Divine Office (the Liturgy of the Hours) is the Church’s official Psalter and sacrifice of prayer, adoration, and praise, so that the Christian may consecrate each day to God and make it holy, at once offering praise to God and interceding for the salvation of the world. Though many devotional prayers are to be found in the treasury of Christian Tradition, it is the Psalter (the Breviary) that is the true prayer book and hymnal of both the Jerusalem temple and the Christian church.
