The Daily Office in Anglican Devotion

Rev Canon Michael Paternoster

The second of three papers given at the Workshop on Daily Worship at St Margaret’s, Barnhill, Dundee on St Andrew’s Day 1994 was given by the Revd Canon Michael Paternoster. He first discusses the migration of the sevenfold daily office to the twice a day pattern in the early Anglican books. The place of the psalms is discussed, and the advantages and disadvantages of a daily lectionary. There are now too many divergent forms and this detracts from the feeling of sharing with others.
