The Divine Office is time honoured and tested method of prayer that offers a thorough grounding in Catholic worship outside the mass. The 'breviary' as it is known is prayed throughout the world and, once mastered, you have the assurance that your prayer is part of the official (Roman Catholic) church's glory and praise to God.
There are three volumes of the Divine Office. Volume One (this one) covers Advent and Christmas tide. Volume Two covers Lent, Holy Week and Eastertide. Volume Three covers Ordinary Time.
Volume one is where you begin and this offers a ruberical (the red coloured instruction), guide to praying the Office.
Included also are many writings from different saints as well as the official church calander.
As with all worthwhile prayer, The Divine Office takes time, but with faithful dedication it will become a very rewarding experience.

The Divine Office is an excellent and satisfying way of prayer. Some may say it is difficult to understand but you can pick it up fairly easily if you do it regularly and there is plenty of information within the breviary and also online to guide you. It is a fulfilling experience to pray in a way that is personally relevant but also to know that you are praying along with millions of others too in the same way.

(I've added some photographs (under "Customer images") of the book you actually receive.)

This is the first (of three) volume of the "full" modern Catholic breviary, the Liturgy of the Hours; this one covers Advent and Christmas, as well as containing the overall introduction and instructions for the series. Volume 2 covers Lent and Easter, and volume 3 the rest of the year - I've posted very similar reviews on each of those pages too.

These volumes are the pinnacle of a whole range of Collins books featuring content from the Liturgy of the Hours in the same style. In ascending order of size, it goes:

- "Shorter Morning and Evening Prayer"
- "Morning and Evening Prayer"
- "Daily Prayer"
- "The Divine Office" (3 vols)

Each of these is effectively a step up, an expanded version of the last. There's no need for anyone to own all seven of these books, as the Divine Office contains everything in Daily Prayer, which in turn contains everything in Morning and Evening Prayer, etc etc; each time you step up, it renders the previous step redundant.

This, the three-part Divine Office set, is the full-length version, the biggest of the lot. Between them, they contain everything that's in the smaller volumes, plus a lot of extra material. All three contain many hours of prayer for each day of the year, as well as a healthy sampling of hymns, poems and prayers for specific purposes; this one has an added bonus in the form of the fifty-page introduction and user guide, the General Instruction, which takes you step by step through how to use the books if you're unfamiliar with how the Liturgy of the Hours works.

Having used these books for the year or so I find them useful. If you are discerning or just need some structure in your prayer life these are perfect.

i purchased volume 3 and have been using it and love it. i wanted to purchase volume 1 for this advent. why is volume 1 so much more expensive than the other two volumes, 50 versus 35? any thoughts?

A well bound volume - however - a few of the pages where not correctly machine cut and badly creased.

This item was described as Leather-bound but its external binding is exactly the sane as Volume III, which is simply hardcover - and was almost half the price. I love The Divine Office, and as a recently returned lapse Catholic I now have a structure and more meaningful prayer routine. I am just staggered that I paid a significant sum of money for Volume I, which contains less pages and is bound exactly the same as the more voluminous Volume III.
