    According to the Catechism of the Catholic Church, the “Liturgy of the Hours”—also known as the “Divine Office” or the “Breviary”—is “the public prayer of the Church” (CCC 1174). In recent years, this prayer has grown in popularity amongst Catholics of all stripes, clergy, religious, and laity. Yet what are the biblical roots of the Liturgy of the Hours? Why does the Catholic Church require its priests to pray it multiple times throughout the day? And why does it consist of so many selections from the Book of Psalms? How can we come to understand this prayer better?

    In this extraordinary new lecture, Dr. Pitre uses his knowledge of the Old Testament liturgy at the time of Jesus to shed fresh light on the Jewish roots of this most Catholic of prayers. In this new series, you will learn:


    • The Jewish custom of praying Morning, Midday, and Evening Prayers
    • Why these ancient Jewish Prayers were tied to the “Perpetual Sacrifice” in the Temple
    • The New Testament evidence that the Apostles prayed at set hours during the day
    • The Psalms that were sung daily by the Levites in the Temple
    • How the book of Psalms was Jesus’ primary ‘Prayer Book’, even in his dying breath
    • The mysterious convergence between Jewish Morning and Evening Prayer and the Passion and Death of Christ
    • What the Jews in the Temple were praying for when Jesus died on the Cross


    Once you understand the biblical roots of this prayer, you will never see the Liturgy of the Hours the same again. Far from being a repetitious duty imposed by the Church on her clergy, the Liturgy of the Hours is nothing less than a participation in and extension of the way Jesus himself prayed in his humanity and the way he wishes his Bride to pray with him now, throughout the world, “without ceasing” (1 Thess 5:17).

    If you’ve ever wanted to understand the Liturgy of the Hours better, or if you have a priest, deacon, or religious person in your life that you would like to encourage in their prayer life, then this is the Bible study for you.

Pray Constantly

Again a fine overview by Dr. Pitre related to the Christianity's debt to ancient Judaism. I cannot understand the emergence of the Church a part from ancient Judaism.

Tradition and the Word perfectly knit together

This was the second talk I've ever heard from Dr. Pitre. The LOH was a bit of mystery for me, why so many prayers a day?, where is that in the bible?, what does it have to do with Jesus?......can you tell I'm a protestant convert?
This talk greatly helped me see prayer in a way I never have before. Not just the LOH itself, but how Jesus prayed, lived, and died. How he fulfilled prayer, even my prayer! As I learned about the jewish roots of this beautiful way of praying I saw the OT and NT fit perfectly together like never before. The two testaments literally knit together so beautifully, all in Jesus Christ. He is the most beautiful person, place, thing, and event that ever was, is now, and will be. Please listen to this presentation and learn about this ancient prayer. Pray like Jesus did, pray as he is. This is truly life changing!

Hi Gary! The tracking shows they were delivered today. I am sorry for the delay as USPS has been experiencing a high number of delays due to the pandemic and increased volume of shipments around Christmas.

The Dead Sea Scrolls for Catholics

Doctor Bergman's delivery of this topic is very good, and easy to listen to. I enjoy his insights and his sense of humor.

The delivery of the package left a lot to be desired...it took from April 16 to May 4th to get to us. In todays' next day delivery environment it leaves a lot to be desired. A warning on your website that delivery of a letter-sized package can take over two weeks to be delivered would lower expectations and increase customer satisfaction.

I am very sorry for the shipping delay. The post office in the New Orleans area has been struggling lately, which causes packages to sit in one place for a week before being moved along in the process. We have spoken to them regarding this and hope they can get it resolved soon

If you have a love for St Joseph & want to learn more. This is a great teaching !!! What better time to learn than this year ... The year of St Joseph !!! Ite ad Ioseph !!!

From NZ

Looking forward to the books arriving. Thanks

Great Information on the greatest male Saint

This was such a great series to purchase. Saint Joseph is my patron saint. I learned so much from this talk. One thing I learned is that Saint Joseph was not old as many pictures show him to be. What a refreshing series. Learning about Jesus more through Joseph. Saint Joseph also would have given Jesus his name. Powerful talks. Consider purchasing this series; it will help you grow more in your culture and faith.

The 4th Cup

Tremendous!
