Gallagher’s book offers encouragement both to those who already pray the Liturgy of the Hours and to those who may wish to undertake this prayer.

Those currently praying the Liturgy of the Hours regularly,
or those aspiring to pray, will greatly benefit
from Father Gallagher’s numerous insights
and helpful resources.”

“I warmly recommend this book to anyone—
clergy, religious, or laity—
who wishes to pray the Liturgy of the Hours
with greater attentiveness and devotion.”

“In this thoughtful and well-crafted book,
Fr. Timothy Gallagher provides some very helpful clarification
regarding the theology and spirituality
that inform the Liturgy of the Hours.
His honest and searching self-examination will prove invaluable
to anyone who has undertaken the responsibility
of praying this great prayer of the Church.”
