Word of the Day: Lauds

LAUDS. One of the seven canonical hours, chanted in the Divine Office, taking its name from Psalms 148, 149, and 150. Since the Second Vatican Council it has been replaced in the breviary by "morning prayers."
Once agan, McOffice shortens the Office. From four Psalms and a Canticle, it has been 'pruned to two Psalms and a Canticle.

For comparison:

Today's McOffice,

The Roman Breviary Office of the Day, with a selection of Rubrics from various periods.

Comments are subject to deletion if they are not germane. I have no problem with a bit of colourful language, but blasphemy or depraved profanity will not be allowed. Attacks on the Catholic Faith will not be tolerated. Comments will be deleted that are republican (Yanks! Note the lower case 'r'!), attacks on the legitimacy of Pope Francis as the Vicar of Christ (I know he's a material heretic and a Protector of Perverts, and I definitely want him gone yesterday! However, he is Pope, and I pray for him every day.), the legitimacy of the House of Windsor or of the claims of the Elder Line of the House of France, or attacks on the legitimacy of any of the currently ruling Houses of Europe.
