Benedictine Monastery Streams Sung Liturgy of the Hours on Line

Edit: want to help the Church?  Want to see what it's like to be a monk? Pray the Liturgy of the hours on line.

(Le Barroux) The monks of the Benedictine Abbey of St. Madeleine de Le Barroux have made a special Christmas gift for the faithful.  Over the internet site of the Abbey it is now possible, four times a day, to directly participate in the Divine Office of the Convent.  The monks present the sung Office completely in the Immemorial Roman Rite.  The faithful in the entire world may pray along over iPhone, over iPad in the small hours of Prime, Sext as well as the Grand Hours of Vespers and Compline.

The monk's day begins at 
3.20 and ends at 20.30 hours. The Liturgical day begins at 3:30 with Matins and is complete at 19.45 with Compline.

Live streaming Liturgy of the Hours:

• Prime : 7.45 Uhr oder 8 Uhr (see calender)
• Sext : 12.15 Uhr
• Vespers : 17.30 Uhr
• Compline : 19.45 Uhr
For all who want to celebrate the Liturgy of the Hours in the Old Rite itself, the Cloister Store of Le Barroux has a complete Office of the Hour or appropriate Liturgical Calender in a single volume.
