The Liturgy of the Hours
Many of us now face the inability to attend Mass and pray together as a community. While we may not be able to celebrate the Eucharistic liturgy together, we can continue to celebrate the Liturgy of the Hours in our homes.The Liturgy of the Hours is the daily prayer ritual of Christians that sanctifies and consecrates time. It is the prayer of Christ and the Church, and its celebration connects us deeply to Christ's Paschal Mystery. 
Below you will find guidance on how to pray this liturgy of the Church at home. We will update this page every week to provide a worship aid for each Sunday.






At Home with the Word and Palabra de Dios™ guide you to a deeper understanding of the Sunday Scriptures, providing readings for this liturgical year, insights from Scripture scholars, and action steps.

At Home with the Word y Palabra de Dios™ lo encaminan a usted hacia una comprensión más profunda de las Escrituras del domingo, al ofrecerle lecturas correspondientes al presente año litúrgico, la interpretación de expertos en las Sagradas Escrituras y acciones concretas.
