For those who want to grow spiritually, Benedictine Daily Prayer provides an everyday edition of the Divine Office. People who desire to pray with the church can do so in a simple manner by following this Benedictine daily prayer model. Based on solid and traditional prayer patterns of more than fifteen hundred years of liturgical prayer within the Benedictine monastic tradition, Benedictine Daily Prayer helps readers celebrate and appreciate God’s presence that is found everywhere, especially within the Divine Office. It offers a richer diet of classic office hymnody, psalmody, and Scripture than shorter resources are able to provide.
Benedictine Daily Prayer is designed for Benedictine Oblates, Benedictine monastics, and men and women everywhere. It’s small enough to fit in a briefcase for travel. Scripture readings are from the NRSV.
Benedictine Daily Prayer includes "Introduction," "An Aid to Praying Benedictine Daily Prayer," "Monastic Calendar," "Sunday and Weekday Readings," "The Ordinary of the Liturgy of the Hours," "The Weekly Psalter," "Supplemental Psalms and Canticles for Vigils and Lauds," "Festival Psalter," "Common for Feasts of the Blessed Virgin Mary," "Common for Feasts of Apostles," "Common for Feasts of Martyrs," "Common for Feasts of Holy Men and Women," "Office for the Dead," "Proper of the Season (Advent, Christmas, Lent, Triduum, Easter, Pentecost)," "Proper of the Saints," and "Appendix: A Selection of Benedictine Prayers."

"This one-volume Benedictine Daily Prayer does a remarkable job of bringing together the essential elements of the monastic Liturgy of the Hours so that the interested user can enter into that daily rhythm of prayer that lies at the heart of monastic life. This volume can also function in a wider sense as a prayer book providing hymns and biblical and non-biblical readings for further reflection and prayer. With the growing number of Benedictine oblates and other Christians of various denominations interested in more actively participating in the monastic Liturgy of the Hours, Benedictine Prayer is a very timely volume. It will prove to be a rich spiritual resource for all who use it. " ---Cistercian Studies Quarterly
"It s true that the best way to pray is the way one prays best. It s true too that to pray in harmony with the whole church is prayer at its best. That has always been the hallowed tradition behind A Short Breviary initially published in 1941 by The Liturgical Press. That widely used volume is now out of print. A new expanded breviary for laity and religious has replaced the former volume that had become one of Liturgical Press s most popular books. In an attractively designed slip, the new breviary is bound in a leatherette-like cover that will wear well. Everything about it is designed to be serviceable from the five ribbons to the end pages providing the Te Deum, Te Decet Laus, Benedictus, Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis." ---Prairie Messenger
"Benedictine Daily Prayer: A Short Breviary is a boon to anyone seeking a pattern of prayer, personal or public, that combines the familiar structures of the daily office with a rich variety of readings, hymns, and prayers. The format is flexible and user-friendly, making this volume an invaluable vademecum for individuals, families, or small groups. Especially welcome are the choices of the Grail inclusive language Psalm translation and the NRSV for the remaining Scripture readings. Combine these choices with a treasury of carefully selected and well-translated hymns, and you have an outstanding ecumenical resource for daily prayer." ---Nathan D. Mitchell, Department of Theology, University of Notre Dame
