The Rule of Saint Benedict Blog — Chapter 8: The Divine Office at Night

Chapter’s eight through twenty of the Rule deal with the nature and structure of communal prayer. This prayer has the psalms as a backbone, with other scripture and readings accompanying. A meditating community that uses the Rule as a guide to communal prayer will be in some way faithful to what Benedict lays out in these chapters, as well as being faithful to shared times of meditating together.
