"Let the word of Christ dwell in you abundantly, in all wisdom teaching and
admonishing one another in psalms, hymns, and spiritual canticles,
singing in grace in your hearts to God." (Col 3:16)
Like a perfect ring upon which a priceless gem is mounted, the Divine Office is the continuous Sacrifice of Praise which serves as a spiritual setting for the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. Clerics and religious are bound by Church law (and by love!) to pray the full 150 Psalms every week or month. It is good for the faithful to be present for this public prayer of the Church, according as their circumstances allow.
The climax of the cycle of prayers in the Divine Office is undoubtedly Sunday Vespers, beginning with the most majestic of all Psalms (Ps 109) and culminating in the Blessed Virgin Mary's Magnificat. All are invited to St Mary's Shrine for Sung Vespers at 5pm on Sunday 2nd October (to be followed, as usual here on Sunday, with the Holy Rosary at 5:30pm and Holy Mass at 6pm).
A sample from Vespers from the Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary is available here on Youtube. The photo shows priests and seminarians at the FSSP's seminary in Wigratzbad and also some of the faithful from St Mary's Warrington, visiting Bavaria for the priestly ordination that day. (The church building is modern, the Psalms and hymn are ancient.)
To take an advance look at the texts, navigate on Divinum Officium to Vespers for 10-02-2016. Alternatively see the Baronius Missal (pg 103), available for sale at St Mary's.
