THE LITURGICAL CODE: CHAPTERS 8-20

Prayer: Responsibility & Privilege (Part 2)

When Benedict talks about the primacy of prayer, the Work of God, the Opus Dei, and the Liturgy of the Hours, he is referring to the public prayer of the community to which he devotes twelve chapters in the Rule. The content of this public prayer is primarily the psalms but there are also readings from both the Hebrew Scriptures and the New Testament.
