The Family Celebration of the Divine Office

The New Liturgical Movement is a non-profit organization which focuses on the Sacred Liturgy, the Sacred Arts, Liturgical Catechetics, and Liturgical Praxis.  They have quite a following on their blog, and also on their Facebook page.

Yesterday, I received a pleasant surprise.  This organization came across some YouTube videos of my family praying,
and they referenced these videos in an encouraging article concerning  The Family Celebration of the Divine Office.

Our family prayers received an additional mention in an article published today,  regarding The Indispensable Role of the Family in the New Liturgical Movement.

I am very thankful that the importance of home family prayer is receiving some notoriety. And I am grateful for many of the responses I see on this website’s posts. I pray that many families are encouraged to make daily family worship a priority.

If we do not make our Faith a priority at home,
then there is no point to making it a priority elsewhere.

The Christian walk begins at home.
