Liturgy of the Hours

In Paul Turner's Blog by Paul Turner

Q: What do we know about the upcoming revision of the “Liturgy of the Hours?”



A: It’s in the works. It’s a big project with a lot of little parts. It won’t be ready until it’s all ready. The ball is pretty far down the field, but not yet across the goal post.

We expect the hymns to be published soon: the first ever English translation of hundreds of hymns from the original Latin. There’s a revised translation of psalms, antiphons and intercessions. The calendar of saints will be updated.

I’m hearing Advent 2025 as the most optimistic prediction for new books in hand.
