Setting and stone

Mass and Divine Office are liturgically interrelated. The latter furnishes the setting for the Mass, as the gold of the ring is the setting for the precious jewel of its stone.

Read the whole post from Breviarium Romanum and tell me you don't wish your parish participated in the Divine Office in a public way. If it does, well, I confess to some level of jealousy. Even if it doesn't, I can't possibly encourage you enough to take up the Divine Office for yourself. It has provided, for me, many moments of light in days of darkness.
