Summary

This Modern Liturgy of the Hours conforms to the traditional 1960 Calendar of the period rendered into today's English for the use of the clergy and faithful.
 
“Prayer is the raising of the mind to God. We must always remember this. The  actual words matter less.” - Pope John XXIII
 
On the Second Ecumenical Vatican Council:
 
"The Ecumenical Council will surely be, even more than a new and magnificent Pentecost, a real and new Epiphany,  one of the many revelations which have been renewed and are continually being renewed in the course of history, but one of the greatest of all." —John XXIII. Apostolic Exhortation 'Sacrae Laudis' 1962
 
Canon 276 of the Code of Canon Law states all clerics are "obliged to carry out the liturgy of the hours daily." Then adds that the laity "are also earnestly invited to participate in the Liturgy of the Hours as an action of the Church."

Will Hen be able to reestablish her place among the People she abandoned? And will she be able to convince Rose to steer clear of rogue neighbor Nick?

At the same time, Priscilla’s best friend Rose is convinced her fiancé is hiding something and she is intent on discovering the truth at any cost. Naomi remains hopeful that she, too, will soon find her perfect match. When Chester’s cousin shows up, there’s an immediate attraction between him and Naomi—as well as an obstacle that may just as immediately derail their blossoming love.
